This patient had been unhappy with the color of her teeth for many years, and due to a non-ideal bite and a grinding habit, had worn and chipped her front teeth. Following discussion of treatment options, she decided to treat the teeth with porcelain crowns on the top teeth, veneers on the bottom teeth, and a bite guard to wear at night. This treatment allowed us to change her bite to a more ideal relationship between the upper and lower teeth as well as provide a beautiful, long-lasting new smile.
This patient had a retained baby canine tooth that was loose and developed decay and could not be repaired. The patient was interested in an implant and crown to replace the tooth. However, there were space problems that had to be addressed. The patient decided on orthodontic treatment (braces) to provide space for implant and crown placement.
Dr. Gray worked very closely with the orthodontist (the doctor who placed the braces) to ensure an appropriate amount of space would be made. He also discussed the position of the implant placement with the periodontist (the doctor who placed the implant) to make ...
This patient was concerned about the loss of his upper front teeth. Dr. Gray discussed a variety of options with the patient and he decided to replace the teeth with two implants and a porcelain bridge. Dr. Gray takes a very careful and deliberate approach to these cases to ensure the end result is fantastic, and the patient is thrilled to have his smile back.
This patient presented with severe decay on a front tooth. Dr. Gray discussed various options and the patient decided to have a crown placed on the tooth. She was very happy with the final result: a healthy tooth that matches her other teeth. The decay was primarily on the tongue side of the tooth, so the before picture was not indicative of the severity of the tooth's condition. For this reason, we posted two after pictures, to demonstrate what is possible as far as shade matching.
This patient had an old fixed bridge which developed new decay. She also had an old crown on her front tooth that had held up well, but did not have the same natural look we can achieve with modern materials. Following discussion of a variety of treatment options, the patient decided to replace the failing bridge with an implant-supported fixed bridge and to replace the old crown on her front tooth with a new, natural-looking crown. The patient wanted to match her new crowns to her natural teeth on her left side and will replace the old crown on her ...
This patient had a common dental problem: a leaking amalgam filling in a tooth with 4 cracks in it. This patient took a preventive approach and decided to cover the tooth with a tooth-colored porcelain crown to prevent fractures. The new crown will protect the tooth underneath and looks just like a natural tooth. Excellent; prompt, professional, excellent tooth repair job. Thanks to Dr Gray and his office. Dr. Gray is friendly and patient in his explanations, taking time to sit down with you and discuss your records personally at your appointment. Highly recommended. ~ Phillip B, Ft. Collins
This patient was missing his molars and decided to replace one molar with a dental implant and crown. The finished crown is screwed into the dental implant and looks and functions just like a natural tooth. Not only does it allow the patient to chew more effectively, but also fills in the gap at the corner of his smile.
