At PGA Dentistry, every unique patient needs a unique plan for a true champion smile. We understand that for patients in Palm Beach Gardens, FL who want a complete smile makeover that the process may be needing multiple procedures. Thanks to Dr. Ajmo’s experience in perfecting his patient’s smiles, he and our staff are well-versed in recognizing the best procedures for you and your smile. Below we’ve listed a few of the combined procedures we have done in the past or the few that may be combined to make your smile extra special. For those missing multiple teeth, have multiple cracks, discolorations or other flaws, look to smile makeover procedures for your oral needs.
Dental Implants and Porcelain Veneers
Let’s talk about a patient named Rick. Rick has had a fear of the dentist since he was a teenager and has not been taking very good care of his teeth. As a result, he’s missing quite a few teeth and the rest are becoming very discolored and showing cracks. In this case, we may recommend that he receive Dental Implants to fill those gaps in his smile, and use porcelain veneers to cover cracks and discolorations on the rest of his teeth.
Dental Bridges and Dental Implants
If a patient is missing multiple teeth and some of the gaps are adjacent to each other, this is where dental bridges may come in. Dental bridges use surrounding teeth as anchors and create a seamless cross that covers multiple teeth. Dental implants are permanent fixtures embedded into the area where the tooth once was, and are crafted to look and feel as natural as the teeth around it. Together, these 2 procedures are perfect for filling the gaps in your smile with natural, functional prosthetics.
Dental Crowns and Gum Contouring
Let’s mention another patient of ours, Gina. The enamel of Gina’s tooth had been eroded to a dangerous degree, and Dr. Ajmo recommended a dental crown to cap the tooth and protect it from further damage. At the same time, we noticed that the gums near the tooth were unusually high-placed. Fixing 2 problems at once, we capped the tooth and performed a gum contouring procedure at the same time to shave off the excess tissue. Gina’s smile was even once again!
