Deanne was looking for improvement to her smile. She had concerns that veneers may look fake, or that people would know she had her teeth done. After consulting with Dr Peterson and his team, and coming up with a plan, she was comfortable that she wouldn’t be disappointed. They decided together on color, value and shape. They looked at photos of many teeth and smile design catalogs. Deanne was then able to preview the plan with a wax mock up and custom temporaries designed to reflect the final goal. Together they decided to stay true to the natural shapes of her teeth, but make some enhancements. To improve on the color, and how to characterize her teeth while avoiding mistakes made in other veneers that make them look fake or obvious. 10 veneers were placed and she got the natural beautiful smile she wanted. Best of all it looks like she was born with it!
Recently a new patient came in for a cosmetic consult who knows Deanne personally. Her comment when we were sharing photos with her, “Oh my gosh, she has the most beautiful smile! I never knew she had veneers!”
Deanne is now using Invisalign to straighten her lower front teeth.
“My favorite compliment is when people tell me how beautiful my smile is and they have no idea I have veneers.”– Deanne
Allen’s video testimonial can been found on our home page. His veneers were part of a Neuromuscular Reconstruction you can learn more about on that page. Allen’s bite was so destructive the restorations on his back teeth were failing and all his teeth were getting shorter and shorter year by year. Allen was only in his mid 30’s, he realized something needed to be done. Every detail of his esthetic reconstruction was personalized to Allen. His treatment also included a MicrO2 sleep appliance. Allen describes his experience as “life changing.”
Debra came to our office unhappy with the wear and color of her teeth. She went through Invisalign treatment with Dr Johnson to improve the position of her teeth that lead to the excessive wear over the years. As Dr Johnson retired she meet with both Doctors and continued her treatment with Dr Peterson. She decided on Zoom whitening, 10 upper veneers and some fillings. Dr Peterson also placed and restored an implant for a missing tooth. Debra wanted her teeth to look like they did before she wore them down. Dr Peterson worked closely with Debra and the lab using old high school photos to give her exactly what she wanted. Now Debra enjoys a beautiful, natural, truly custom smile.
“My veneers are beautiful! I couldn’t be happier! It took me awhile to get used to the way they felt in my mouth, since my teeth were so worn down, but once I did, amazing. You are an incredible dentist! You also have an amazing staff. I always felt very comfortable and safe while I was at your office. That isn’t always possible when it comes to visiting the dentist, but I knew with you and your staff, I was in very competent, qualified hands. I thank you for my new smile!”– Debra
Poor Ashley had veneers done twice elsewhere in Utah. The first time they were so unattractive she insisted they be redone. The second set was then placed only to have them breaking, falling off, and turning black underneath in just months. When one broke and the original doctor couldn’t get a replacement to match she gave up on that office and tried a second dentist. That resulted in the front left tooth that doesn’t match the others. Even though unhappy, it took Ashley a year to decide to take up the search for a new dentist to help her get the healthy beautiful smile she wanted. Almost a year later her research brought her Dr. Peterson. It was his gallery of photos that made her feel comfortable to reach out to a dental office again.
Her treatment included smile design preplanning, laser gum contouring to level out her smile, Zoom! whitening, removing the bad veneers with a laser (instead of a drill) and beautiful new veneers designed with all the details she requested!
Greg’s veneers were part of a complete reconstruction. He was unhappy with the wear on his teeth and the quality of his “same day crowns.” His regular general dentist had talked to him about esthetic and reconstructive treatment but Greg decided to research for someone with more training. You can lean more about his bite reconstruction in the neuromuscular section.
Greg was very involved with every feature of the anterior teeth. The color, shape, opacity, and surface detail. Dr. Peterson worked closely with Greg to fine tune the design and then with the lab until the final result reflected the vision Dr Peterson and Greg envisioned. Dr Peterson and the ceramist dialed in details with the wax up and temporaries. Verified appearance, speech and comfort, and then turned that into a beautiful final result!
Judy had been a patient of Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry for many years when she decided she wanted to beautify her smile. She had a great experience replacing her ageing metal fillings with bonded porcelain and had been on a maintenance check-up schedule for some time. Her teeth were becoming progressively crowded and yellow, and she had undersized upper “lateral” incisors. She decided on the treatment plan of orthodontic straitening with Invisalign, followed by Zoom2! Whitening and veneers on her upper front 6 teeth. She now loves her natural beautiful smile that looks like she “was just born with it!”
It isn’t often that a highly trained cosmetic dentist will recommend 6 upper veneers, often preferring the patient choose either 4 or 8 veneers. Judy’s teeth are a rare exception to this rule. This incredible result is thanks to great planning and an amazing lab.
This patient had consulted with Dr. Johnson a few years prior. She had veneers done by another dentist in Salt Lake but wasn’t happy with the way her smile looked and she wanted to know if anything could be done. He sister had beautiful veneers done by Dr. Johnson so she returned to consult with Dr. Peterson. Her teeth had shifted and the veneers didn’t look natural. With a wedding photo shoot quickly approaching she was hoping for good news. Dr. Peterson spoke to her not only about her cosmetic goals but also the headaches, neck pain, and other neuromuscular symptoms she was suffering from. She was able to get a beautiful smile in time for her wedding photos and relief from her pain and symptoms with a neuromuscular MicrO2 sleep appliance. Her treatment plan included veneers on upper and lower teeth and laser contouring of her gums.
Veneer cases do not always involve 8-12 teeth. This pt was unhappy with his aging crowns on his front two teeth. The color was too yellow and the clarity didn’t match his natural teeth. The lateral teeth, (on either side of the center two,) were also slightly undersized. After a discussion of options during our consultation he decided on replacing his two crowns and veneering the laterals. He got a great looking natural result and the improvement he was hoping for.
