Nicole was concerned about the color, wear and spaces on her upper teeth. She came to our office with composite bonding that was placed many years ago and it was beginning to chip away. By placing a combination of 6 upper crowns and veneers we were able to address all of her concerns. After treatment was completed Nicole said “I receive compliments for my smile and beautiful teeth on a regular basis. Thank you Dr. Swearingen and staff in restoring my confidence and helping me to smile again!”

Chair side bonding

Cheri had chair side bonding done approximately 10 years ago which was starting to deteriorate. She wanted to have it replaced. Cheri also had wear on the front teeth and a poor shape. She wanted all that improved. After discussing the options with her which included, porcelain veneers or composite veneers (which are done in the office) she elected to do the composite veneers. We contoured her gum tissue and used several different shades and tints of composite to create a natural, beautiful smile. After treatment, Cheri stated that “she can now smile confidently.”

Celeni came to us with concerns about the crowding and appearance of her smile. She had seen Orthodontists in the past and they recommended surgery along with braces. She was looking for other options. She sought out Dr. Swearingen who recommended doing 6 upper veneers and contouring her lower teeth. Celeni was excited about this option and proceeded with treatment. She began with In-Office whitening by Zoom II which lightened her teeth by 7 shades. We prepared her upper 6 teeth and shortly thereafter we placed her veneers.
"I never thought I could smile with such confidence!" exclaimed Celeni when she returned for additional care a few weeks later.

What ever mother deserves...

Susan spent her whole life catering towards the need of other while putting her own needs on the backburner. Susan had teeth broken down, decay in her mouth, signs of periodontal disease and discolored fillings, it wsa finally her turn to "change her life!" We proceeded with her upper arch and once that was completed we did her lower arch. Susan had a total of 20 veneers/crowns placed, which was all well-deserved!! After all the years of putting others first, it was now her time to shine... and her smile has never been brighter!

Correcting Anterior Crowding

Joyce came to us with several concerns she wanted to address. She previously had root canals on her front teeth that were beginning to discolor, as well as the black triangles between her teeth. Joyce was happy with the shade of her teeth and wanted to match the veneers to her current color. We mentioned to Joyce that the ideal treatment would be to place veneers on her upper 10 teeth to correct her concerns as well as widening her buccal corridor. At this time Joyce wanted to do upper 6 teeth and then in the future the additional 4 veneers. We were able to match the shade of her teeth and close the black triangles that Joyce was concerned about. ”I love my new smile and appreciate the happy energy everyone in the office expresses.”
