This case shows how a complex cosmetic dentistry cases can have beautiful results. The challenges and patients concerns were:
- Baby tooth failing
- Hypo-calcification of her teeth
- Short and worn teeth
- Gummy Smile
She has always desired a less gummy smile, larger teeth, and natural aesthetics. The conventional approach with dentistry would have been to place new veneers and a bridge. this would not acheive the results desired and she would still have had a gummy smile and short teeth.
With advanced planning and smile design, we completed a gum lift, removed the baby tooth and placed a dental implant, and made her teeth more proportional in size for her face. Note the beautiful tissue result around the implant as well.
Life changing results for this lovely lady!!!
Dental Implants can be used to replace missing teeth and should be cosmetic as well as functional. This case reflects how strategic planning and 3D imaging allows proper implant placement so that the cosmetic and functtional requirements of the patient can be met. This can be termed Functional Cosmetic Dentistry®. In addition to proper implant placement, notice how the porcelain was designed to blend in with the other teeth in terms of shade, shape, texture, and glaze to create a beautuiful dental implant smile!

Young lady with occlusal disease that was cusing her to break and lose teeth. Bite correction, functional cosmetic dentistry and dental implants were used to create her new beautiful smile.
This patient is a gentleman who was breaking teeth, already had missing teeth, was experiencing difficulty eating, and found himself not wanting to smile. We provided comprehensive dental care with dental implants, crowns, bite correction, and veneers to create a beautiful and functional smile with long-term stability.
Bite management treatment, and then veneers and crowns to the corrected bite. Dental implants were also completed on some of the back teeth. Looking at the whole patient rather than just the teeth allowed for these results and more conservative treatment on the teeth as they were built back up as opposed to grinding them down like conventional dentistry.
