Many of us dream of a perfectly healthy and beautiful smile that attracts others and helps us feel good about our appearance. But there are so many dental procedures available today that it can be hard to picture how one or the other might benefit you.
Over the years, Dr. Cantwell has helped hundreds of his patients in Boise achieve the smile of their dreams. If you would like to get an idea of the changes that are possible for you, please take a moment to browse the before and after images of smile transformations we've created for our actual patients. All work was performed and photographed by Dr. Cantwell.
This patient was born with no lateral incisors (the second teeth from the middle), which made his larger teeth fall forward, giving a less balanced look to his smile. After a round of orthodontics to close gaps, we placed veneers over the canine teeth, giving them the look of incisor teeth and the bicuspids the look of canines. Once we finished with the veneers, we whitened his teeth for an overall brighter look. You can see in the after photos that there is a more even, "normal" appearance to his smile now!
This patient was experiencing several problems and needed a few procedures to achieve the smile she wanted. Years of drinking teeth-staining liquids like coffee, tea, and wine had left her teeth discolored, while crowding had left her teeth chipped and worn. We started with Invisalign to give more space to over overcrowded smile. Then, we added a few no-metal crowns and veneers to give a more even, youthful appearance to her front teeth. Finally, we whitened the rest of her smile to match. The final result, as you can see, is a smile that really pops!
Aggressive wear made this patient hate the appearance of her teeth. We worked together to find a treatment plan that would give her a natural-looking, beautiful smile. After she completed a course of Invisalign, we whitened her teeth and combined that with 6 veneers and 12 crowns. The after photo speaks for itself!
