A beautiful result of instant orthodontics by Phoenix cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox combining several techniques to create a total smile makeover. One of the central incisors in the before picture had to be removed due to an untreatable problem. The area was not acceptable to place a dental implant and implant crown so a porcelain to zirconium bridge was placed. MAC Veneers and teeth bleaching of the remaining teeth completed a terrific result. These are the kinds of results we produce weekly as we strive to provide the best in Phoenix and Scottsdale cosmetic dentistry.

Although the majority of cosmetic dentistry at DesertSmiles is performed with porcelain veneers and crowns, cosmetic bonding remains a great option in certain cases. Cosmetic dental bonding is very conservative to the tooth structure and about one third the cost of veneers. Its biggest drawback is over time it can discolor and pick up stains. Regular polishing of the dental bonding and being careful about coffee, tea and smoking can also prolong the life expectancy. As we strive to provide the best in Arizona cosmetic dentistry, dental bonding can transform a smile in one visit for a very reasonable investment.

In complex smile designs such as this case we combined three different technologies, a zirconium to porcelain fixed bridge in harmony with MacVeneers and Empress crowns. The ability to place all porcelain bridges built on a zirconium core has dramatically improved the aesthetic results possible when replacing missing teeth. They have the strength of the old style porcelain to metal bridges with much more natural appearance. They will never develop the gray line at the gum line associated with porcelain to metal restorations.
