Anybody can claim to have the latest technology. We pride ourselves in understanding how and when to use it. This approach helps us deliver the best treatment in the correct way for each of our patients. Below are a few examples of some of the procedures we perform at Lumos Dental. For more information we invite you to contact our office and set up a consultation.
We were able to give this patient a new smile in one, time-saving visit! We utilized conservative dentistry by minimally preparing only four of his front teeth. We fabricated his porcelain veneers in the office using our CEREC technology and bonded them all before lunch was served. This patient was thrilled with the result and smile transformation!
We were able to help this patient, who was undergoing extensive medical treatment and suffering from severe dry mouth. She developed many areas of cavities and was losing confidence from the darkness and voids they were causing in her smile. We were able to remove the cavities and fabricate new porcelain crowns for her. Not only are her teeth healthier and decay-free, she has her confidence back with a killer smile!
This case demonstrates the benefits of a close collaboration between our general dentist, Dr. Jennifer You, and our periodontist, Dr. Michael Weiner.
As evident in the “Before” photo, this patient’s lower front teeth were severely compromised by gum disease and bone loss. In addition to the front four lower requiring extractions, a bone graft procedure to augment the dental ridge was also performed.
Because the patient required extensive medical treatment and preferred not to wear a removable temporary prosthesis until dental care could resume, the canines were crowned, and a temporary fixed bridge was placed.
As seen in the “After” photo, when dental care finally resumed, a permanent, beautiful, and well-matched zirconia fixed bridge completely transforms the appearance of this patient’s smile.
