The following photos show a typical Full Mouth Rehabiltation utilizing fillings, root canals, posts and cores, all topped off with distinctive "metal free" cosmetic crowns. 2 "before" photos show many years of neglect due to that common fear of going to the dentist. We always start with simple "pain free" procedures first, and with time, these patients calm down and realize that it's not as bad as they thought it would be. Once they realize how easy it is to look and feel great, improvements occur quickly. In less than a year we were able to make a substantial improvement in her smile and confidence.
The first 2 photos are the "before" shots. The third photo shows 4 lower cosmetic crowns cemented. Note the color change we are able to enjoy when fabricating multiple anterior crowns. The last photo shows a distinctive smile and a happy patient!.
SOME OF OUR FAVORITE COSMETIC CASES
Everyone wants to see the complete "Smile Makeover" or as we used to say, that "Hollywood Smile". Treatment usually involves removing all old silver fillings and metal crowns and replacing with contemporary, metal free, restorative materials. We have been providing fine cosmetic services, both full mouth and smaller segment cases, for more than 25 years. Many of our cosmetic patients say we "changed their life". Cases like these remind me why I got into Dentistry in the first place. Lets take a look at some before and after photos ..........
The first case is Jan M. Happy about her New Look she writes: " I had not been to a dentist in quite a long time. I was absolutely determined...to smile again. ....I kept searching online and found Dr. Tedesco's site..... Even after my first visit I was able to start feeling confident in my smile! Please feel free to ask Dr. Tedesco to see my before and after photos and you will see why I feel like I just received the best present ever."
A typical case....she hasn't smiled in years. No one should have to live this way. For what ever reason, she decided the time was now and we were happy we could help. The final pic shows another happy patient
THE NEXT CASE SHOWS A 55 YEAR OLD FEMALE WHO NEVER SMILED AND ALWAYS DISLIKED HER FRONT TEETH. SHE EVEN WANTED ME TO EXTRACT THEM ALL AND MAKE A FULL DENTURE. WE CONVINCED HER TO HAVE THE COSMETIC CROWN WORK DONE INSTEAD AND SHE CRIED FOR JOY WHEN WE CEMENTED HER CROWNS. THAT WAS A NICE DAY!
A 57 YEAR OLD MALE, RECENTLY DIVORCED AND GOING TO JAMAICA TO HAVE SOME FUN. A NEW SMILE WILL HELP THE CAUSE. NO PROBLEM MAN...
A 70 year old male could never afford dental care eariler, and then didn't go later because of embarrassment. Luckily, after reading this website he felt comfortable enough to come in for a consult. We are all glad he did.
HERE IS AN OLD 6 UNIT BRIDGE THAT BROKE AFTER MANY YEARS OF USE. WE REPLACED IT WITH AN 8 UNIT BRIDGE. THE NEW ONE LOOKS GREAT!
This case should have been corrected with orthodontics 40 years ago. Instead she has been hiding her smile all this time....... But not anymore!
The next case is not a perfect smile makeover, as it is a budget case. But for this patient's confidence, it is the difference between night and day.
The next patient is also a budget case and in quite a hurry as the big wedding is next Saturday! We save one morning for treatment and after a couple of immediate root canals, posts & bonded resin veneers, she is ready for her photos.
When Adequate Healthy Bone exists at the Implant Site, Immediate load Implants enable us to place an Implant, and a Crown on the Implant, in one comfortable Appointment! This case is of a type that we see over and over again. Many young adults require the replacement of upper lateral incisors that never developed at birth. Utilizing bone condensing immediate implants and our patented surgical placement system we were able to help Alyssa smile again....IMMEDIATELY! The 2 photos taken during the procedure show the clean, trauma free placement of one of the implants and the "after" photo with the two temporary incisor crowns cemented in place. The final crowns will be fabricated and cemented in a few weeks.
Alyssa was thrilled with the result, and was kind enough to offer these words for your consideration of her experience the day of surgery....
"I was referred to Dr. Tedesco by my dental lab instructor for dental implants on both of my laterals. After just one consultation with him, I knew that this is who I wanted to work on my teeth. The technology and software he uses for xrays are very impressive and I was assured this guy knew exactly what he was doing. There were lots of pre work that needed to be done before I went along with the implants such as scans, impressions, and bone probing for measurements but this was because he made sure everything would be perfect. During the actual surgery, I was incredibly nervous. Surprisingly, the procedure was nearly painless! The whole thing took 3 and a half hours. This was because after the abutment was put into my jaw he would take an xray to make sure the placement was perfect. Then after every time it went in further, he would take another xray to make sure it was precise. I am SO glad we went with Tedesco because I know I had gotten the best possible experience I could get!"
