Gregory is a champion Rugby team-player! Unfortunately, one of his greatest efforts resulted in breaking off one of his central incisors, at the gum-line, through the nerve. On a Saturday, when it happened, DRL performed a root canal, made a post for the tooth, made a great looking temporary crown.
Now, 3 weeks later, Gregory has a zirconium crown for the upper left central incisor, indistinguishable from the adjacent tooth! Gregory and his mother, Ann, loves the result.
Our patients, when they damaged one of their front teeth, love Dr. L's artistic rendering of an identical reproduction of their remaining central incisor!
When you need the best, Dr. L
is your choice for:
THE VERY BEST DENTAL ART!
|Judy's smile, before Dr. L's dental art smile make-over! Note, even though we asked Judy to SMILE BIG, she did not. Judy was not happy with her smile and practiced--not smiling!|
|Judy's smile, after Dr.L's dental art creation! Look, now Judy's natural new smile follows the form of her new front teeth zirconia crowns!|

|Here's Dave's close up of his pre-treatment smile. The two front teeth crowns are old, discolored and the gums have severely pulled back exposing the darkened roots.|
Dave first came to see us for a back tooth, toothache. Dave had serious gum disease. Dave wanted to keep his teeth and took to Dr. L's gum health improvements like a duck takes to water! Dave has become an avid Hydroflosser. His gum pockets have resolved 50% or more. Great Job Dave! Now, with an smile upgrade, Lori, it is your turn, next! Let's get started soon!
Tom came to visit our office. It had been about 5 years since we performed a smile upgrade with 6 dental implants. The girls in our office are of the opinion Tom looks like Robert Redford (Tom corrected me, he said: "A young Robert Redford." Tom is now a non smoker--he had a heart attack and now is following Dr.L's recommendation to stop smoking for better physical and dental health!
way. Remember, Dr. L's motto is Your Smile is made Your Way.
Doris now has two lower jaw implants that support the lower front porcelain bridge. Doris has 6 upper anterior zirconia crowns. She also has a lower right jaw implant for the replacement of her missing lower right side first molar.
|Doris loves her new smile! Doris helped design her smile her way! Dr. L. and Doris give "thumbs up" to the Doris's new smile!|

Robbie wore out his ol' smile with years of tooth grinding. We won't show his ol'smile because he wore his teeth down so bad, they would not have been visible. Robbie is thrilled with his new smile, and choice of dental implant treatment.
DrL diagnosed the cosmetic dentistry problem to be that of the upper teeth being too short (they did not show at all), and the lower teeth being too long(the lower teeth showed too much). DrL diagnosed Jame's smile needs by making a smile design wax pattern. This wax pattern is tried on the implants, and a smile designed with the patient's approval. Then, DrL made a new upper and lower porcelain dental smile for this patient. Those after pictures are shown, below!
After--James loves his new DrL smile! Jame's smile was made, his way, the correct way. DrL was happy to make a new smile for James. DrL always makes smile design patterns in wax, before making the porcelain bridges. Smile design wax patterns insures a successful smile result, every time! This is a picture with his lips retracted. The very first picture, above,(with DrL in the picture) shows the after result with a very normal smile broadly being shown off, by James! This is an example of another cosmetic success story created by the artist's porcelain paint brushes!
