Invisalign and Temporary Crowns

I began treatment for this patient by using Invisalign to even out his gum line and straighten his teeth. Next came his front crowns.

This patient had old unattractive crowns on his four front teeth. The mid line was off at an angle and the shape, color and size have no relationship to the teeth they were supposed to replace.

When I am replacing old crowns I often use the old restorations that are present to make new temporary crowns. In this case I wanted him to have temporaries that could be used to model the final restorations. I believe that temporary crowns are an important step to getting to a great end result. If a patient isn’t happy and comfortable with a temporary then I don’t know how successful the final permanent crown will be. Temps should look and feel great!

Here I hand carved a block of acrylic to create a new set of temporary teeth. It took about an hour to create his new smile. My only concern will be making his permanent teeth look as good!

Dental Bonding - Before & After

This patient had the front tooth bonded by her previous dentist three times. He insisted she needed a crown. Here she is 30 minutes later, after this very happy patient had her tooth bonded.

Candy’s previous dentist offered no solution to her unhappiness with her space. In one hour Dr. Shapiro closed the gap with bonding material. An easy, cost effective solution.

Brian’s previous dentist wanted to do 12 porcelain veneers. For a 24 year old, Dr. Shapiro felt that this treatment was a bit aggressive (what was he thinking???). Here are his before and after pics after having his teeth conservatively restored with bonded composite at a fraction of the cost. The process was completely 100% pain free without the use of any local anesthetics. The best part of this treatment is that after more then 2 years, he hasn’t broken a single restoration!

This is a case of malocclusion (a non-functioning bite) that was causing wear and breakdown of several teeth. Dr. Palmieri treated the crowding and bite with 3 months of Invisalign, and the worn edges were restored with composite bonding. The changes are subtle but will help to prevent further wear and breakdown of his teeth as he ages.

Dental Implant

Robert lost his front tooth. Dr. Shapiro placed his implant (an artificial tooth root) and restored it with a new life-like crown.

This patient presented to the office with severe periodontal disease and wanted a solution. Unfortunately, several teeth could not be saved. However, with careful planning, Dr. Palmieri was able to deliver a temporary appliance to give this patient back his smile and ability to chew and function while his implants are healing.

Porcelain Veneers

John was very unhappy with his smile. Dr. Shapiro restored his smile and his confidence with 10 beautiful life-like veneers.

This patient’s transformation using porcelain veneers has been problem free for almost 20 years. She still has a great smile.

Karen wanted a great smile and she got it with porcelain veneers!


Dr. Shapiro moved and whitened these teeth using clear plastic aligners. A very happy patient!

This patient came in 4 months before her daughter’s wedding. Accelerated Invisalign came to her rescue and dramatically improved her smile.

Previous dentists attempted to bond this patient’s worn teeth, but the bonding continued to chip away and break. The cause of the breakdown was her occlusion or bite, and her lower teeth were wearing down her upper teeth due to misalignment. Dr. Palmieri used Invisalign to correct her bite and provide the space needed to rebuild the front teeth. He then restored the teeth with composite veneers to rebuild the lost tooth structure.

This patient presented to the office after a traumatic incident left her front teeth fractured. In less than one hour, Dr. Palmieri was able to rebuild the teeth to their natural contours and esthetics with composite bonding.

Bonding of discolored spaced front teeth

After finishing Invisalign with her Orthodontist, this patient was still unhappy with the overall appearance and shape of her teeth. She wanted a solution to further improve her smile and wanted to eliminate the large embrasure (space) between the edges of the front teeth. After the patient had whitened her teeth, Dr. Palmieri was able to adjust the shape of several teeth and apply composite bonding to the two central teeth to give the patient a smile she was happy with.

This patient was unhappy with her smile and wanted to know how it could be improved.  Misalignment of the teeth created a situation in which the anterior teeth started to break down and wear at the edges.  The right side of her smile was also overpowered by her cuspid, which was too far out and hiding the teeth behind. With a combination of Invisalign and conservative composite bonding, Dr. Palmieri gave her a smile that she was proud to show off.

Single Tooth Bleaching/Whitening

The patient originally wanted the left front incisor extracted because of its discoloration. We simply bleached the tooth; no other procedure was done to change the color. The patient went away happy, and with his tooth intact!
