PATIENT STORIESGracemarySmile by Dr. Glavan
Gracemary previously wore an upper partial denture, which needed repeated repair due to the bite relationship of her canted and mobile anterior teeth. She needed a full-mouth reconstruction to upright the canted teeth. The procedure included one seven-unit bridge, which served to stabilize the mobile teeth; two separate three-unit bridges, and three teeth requiring root canal therapy. Now her satisfaction with the results—and her smile—light up a room!
PATIENT STORIESWadeSmile by Dr. Glavan
Wade had a previous root canal in his left front central incisor that was failing and mobility of his out-of-position left lateral incisor was due to an impacted upper left canine. All of these teeth were extracted and an implant-supported bridge was fabricated with crowns on the right side to match. Now this patient’s mouth has what are called “golden proportions.” Wouldn’t you agree?
PATIENT STORIESMikeSmile by Dr. Glavan
Due to his dental needs, Mike hadn’t smiled in quite awhile. In some cases, it was due to poorly completed dentistry—in others, work that should have been done, but had been neglected. After having a full-mouth reconstruction, he’s gaining confidence in his smile and the results were definitely worth waiting for!
PATIENT STORIESMikeSmile by Dr. Glavan
Mike suffered from collapsed vertical dimension due to severe attrition of his upper and lower teeth, which were worn down to little nubs and encroaching on the pulp. Full-mouth reconstruction was completed to halt the damaging attrition and restore the patient’s vertical dimension to normal—creating a more youthful appearance.
PATIENT STORIESPangSmile by Dr. Glavan
This patient had a rare condition called oligodontia, where many of her anterior permanent teeth were congenitally missing. In order to correct this, the failing primary teeth were extracted and a seven-unit porcelain bridge was constructed to replace the missing permanent teeth. As you can see, she is very happy with the results and her new smile!
PATIENT STORIESIkuyoSmile by Dr. Glavan
Ikuyo was not happy with the symmetry of her smile line. To bring to life the pretty smile she wanted, her full-mouth reconstruction included one three-unit, implant-supported bridge and two single-tooth implants. She’s sure happy now!
PATIENT STORIESGretchenSmile by Dr. Glavan
Gretchen needed to have her anterior bridge replaced. Her left central incisor was missing due to an accident and the bridge she had previously been fitted for was undersized. In order to re-create her former, pre-accident appearance, an old photo was used as the model to follow in creating her new look. Beautiful!
PATIENT STORIESKarnSmile by Dr. Glavan
Although Karn had many sound, tooth-colored restorations in her upper front teeth, the shades were mismatched and the teeth rotated and out of position. After many years, Karn finally decided to proceed with an all-ceramic, maxillary reconstruction, which provided her teeth with a lighter, more-uniform shade and the illusion of proper alignment.
PATIENT STORIESDeborahSmile by Dr. Glavan
Deborah visited the clinic after her jacket’s zipper cracked the porcelain veneer on her upper left front tooth, causing the cracked portion of the veneer to fall off. It was temporarily repaired with composite—a tooth-colored, filling material—which made her front tooth appear elongated, due to recession of her gum tissue. Click here to read more.
