Case Study #1

Overview of Case : This wonderful patient was dissatisfied with the uneven edges, and color of her upper teeth.  We always work with the end in mind. To this end, the design phase is critical. Our initial design lengthened the teeth at the edges, reversing the wear, and increased the height in some areas at the gumline, restoring the lost space due to shifting.  The final result is very natural and fits the patient's smile and face well. We were so happy this patient trusted us to provide this care!

Case Study #2

This wonderful patient came to us as a referral from a local oral surgeon. Her lower teeth were painful and mobile due to gum, or periodontal, disease. We developed a plan that transitioned our patient from fixed appliances to her final hybrid. The final prosthetic consists of a high-performance polymer and individual crowns for maximum esthetic, fit, and feel. This entire process took about six months and the patient was thrilled with the final result!

Do you love your smile?
At Capital Dental Design, we help you answer “yes” with confidence.

There are many factors that go into your dream smile: lip dynamics, tooth color, gum disease, face shape, facial planes, cavities, tooth texture,
facial proportions, and aging dental work.

These can simply be categorized under health or esthetics.


Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?

Any of these may indicate cavities or structural weakness in your teeth. There are many ways to improve your oral health, as long as we treat the root cause.

Do your teeth have discoloration, chips, cracks?
Can you see the edges of your fillings showing?

Any of these may indicate cavities or structural weakness in your teeth. There are many ways to improve your oral health, as long as we treat the root cause.

Do you have crowding or spacing between your teeth, or too much gum when you smile?

This could be caused by your teeth or jaw being in the wrong position. Either way, we can consider braces or even clear Invisalign trays to improve positioning.

Do you feel your teeth are too big or small for your smile?

An analysis of your smile, relative to your face, can show us what range the proportion of your teeth should be to harmonize with your smile. We can utilize lifelike porcelain veneers to improve any disproportions.

Do you feel like you don’t show enough smile or smile isn’t big enough?

If you’re not showing enough tooth it may be the result of your teeth being worn down or lip position. Facial analysis is the key to making sure the root cause is addressed, not just the symptoms.
