Covering tetracycline stains

Beverly came to us concerned with the tetracycline stains in her teeth along with the slight spacing. To receive the optimum color results Beverly decided to do her entire upper arch in veneers and crowns, and whiten her lower teeth with bleaching trays. We slightly lengthened her teeth. Beverly has been so to pleased with her results that she states “My teeth have completely changed my self image. I have so much more confidence in myself than ever before. The results of the expertise and professionalism of Dr. Swearingen and his entire staff have far exceeded my expectations!”

Debby came to our office with certain goals she wanted accomplished. Debby was concerned with the color discrepancy of her front teeth, as well as the slight crowding. She also wanted to improve the overall health of her mouth. Debby was interested in having her teeth whitened with the Take-Home system by Zoom!. We were able to accomplish all of her goals with veneers on her upper 10 teeth. We contoured the gum tissue which allowed us to slightly lengthen her teeth. Debby has been very pleased with her natural, beautiful smile.

Reducing a "Gummy Smile"

After living many years with a “gummy” smile Terrie wanted to make a change. She was interested in lengthening her teeth and reducing the amount of gum tissue that showed when she smiled. The ideal result for Terrie was to see a Periodontist for a gum lift. This is a minor procedure that makes a world of difference. Healthy, well-contoured tissue compliments and frames the teeth to give her a much more vibrant smile. In just a few visits Terrie had 10 porcelain veneers placed giving her a much more attractive smile.
