Jesse*’s wife accepted his marriage proposal, if he agreed to replace his missing tooth before the wedding! Jesse* closed the deal- the final result speaks for itself.
David*’s grand daughters asked about his “yellow dog teeth” one too many times- but he had a plan to make them stop! Teeth bleaching followed by 4 anterior crowns.
This older gentleman was proud of the fact that he had a full set of teeth, and was devastated when he lost his lower left first molar. He chose to have it replaced with an implant supported crown, and reports that it feels just like any of his natural teeth.
Kevin* was in the wrong place (downtown Peterborough), at the wrong time (2am) … luckily, he had the capacity to find his tooth and store it in milk until Dr. Vander Velden was able to replant it. This tooth is still in place, more than 20 years after the incident!
Emergency Care, Anterior Crowns
This 17-year-old exchange student was devastated by the dental injuries suffered in a bicycle accident. It took considerable effort, but Dr. Vander Velden restored her smile before she returned home to Spain.
This dental hygienist’s dazzling smile was marred only by the natural gap between her lower front teeth. She declined the orthodontic option, and chose to have Dr. Vander Velden close the gap with bonding. One appointment, 40 minutes, no anaesthetic.
Cynthia*’s parents couldn’t afford braces when she was young, and she always vowed to get them straightened when she could afford it. Seven months of Invisalign later, she had the smile she had always dreamed of.
This young gentleman’s new job put him in the public eye. Unhappy with his uneven teeth and a midline gap, he chose 4 porcelain veneers over the orthodontic option. 2 appointments, 10 days apart.
After whitening and 6 upper porcelain veneers, Heather*’s only regret was that she “didn’t do this 20 years ago!”
Rick* had never been happy with the appearance of his teeth, and his wife commented that he never smiled in pictures. After some minor gum surgery and 6 porcelain veneers, he can’t stop smiling.
Jane* wanted to look her best for an upcoming 50th anniversary, and treated herself to a new smile. Six anterior crowns.
This young lady was very self-conscious about the unusual white spots on her yellow front teeth. With a little micro abrasion and 2 weeks of home bleaching, we had her smiling from ear to ear.
Judy* was thrilled with the results after just 2 weeks of supervised home bleaching. Using custom trays and professional strength bleaching gel produces predictable and superior results when compared to over-the-counter "whitestrips".
Although very durable, even silver fillings don’t last forever. When the need for replacement finally arrives, many patients request tooth coloured fillings.
Infrequent dental care and some poor dietary habits contributed to the development of this large cavity. Using composite resin, Dr. Vander Velden was able to restore this tooth to pristine condition.
