Lower photo: William had crooked, discolored teeth. He had a bonding on his right central incisor that was dark and broken. He had a cross bite on several of his upper left teeth. Upper photo: William had Dr. Huefner place eight porcelain veneers and got straight, white teeth and a more masculine and professional looking smile.

William, an ambitious Realtor in his early thirties wanted more listings.  He was moderately successful in the San Fernando Valley, but after moving to Orange County he found the competition between Realtors for new listings to be almost overwhelming.  After months of working very hard and not seeing much fruits for his efforts he finally asked a very successful Realtor in his office to help mentor him.

“Image is key one to getting new listings”, his mentor told William.  “You’ve got to promote yourself heavily here in Laguna Niguel so that everyone knows your name and hopefully, your face.” Then he told William something about his personal appearance that shocked him!  “William, your teeth and smile don’t look their best.  How can you expect people to have confidence that you’re sharp and professional when your teeth are crooked, broken and yellow?  Your business card needs to have a great photo of you smiling, and when prospective clients meet you for the first time they need to know that you care a lot about yourself.  Your appearance says a lot about that.  They need to know that you are going to take great care of them and you are the best professional that you can be.”

William's mentor told him something very personal that shocked him. "If you want to get more listings and be more successful as a Realtor you need to improve the appearance of your teeth."

When William looked at his teeth in the mirror and at some of his closeup photos, he knew his mentor was right.  It was time to see a cosmetic dentist.

When William came to us he told us the story.  He followed it up telling us that his short term goal was to get more listings in Laguna Niguel, but his long term goal was to be one of the most successful Realtors in Orange County.  He was committed to doing the hard work, but wanted us to help give him a friendly, professional, great looking smile with cosmetic dentistry.

William had done his homework before coming in to see us.  He had studied his teeth carefully and knew all his “smile flaws”:

  • He wanted whiter teeth.  His were yellow and his front two teeth didn’t match.
  • He wanted all his teeth to be the same color. His right front tooth had a discolored bonding which was chipped.
  • His teeth were all slightly crooked and he wanted them straight.
  • Four of his left side and front teeth leaned inwards (called cross bite).

We looked closely at William’s teeth and he showed ten of his upper teeth when he smiled.  Based on his goals Dr. Huefner recommended that he make ten porcelain veneers for William.  When William looked at his teeth he felt that he only really showed eight teeth when he smiled.  He asked if he could just do the eight teeth, and if later on he felt he should do two more he would.  Dr. Huefner agreed he could do it that way if that was what he really wanted.

When Dr. Huefner designed William’s smile he chose a “masculine” smile design from the tooth shape library.  Cosmetic dentists often impart gender in the size, shape and length of the teeth.  For someone like William, a big masculine guy, Dr. Huefner recommended front teeth that were a little more square on the corners.  For women, especially those who want to look younger or more feminine, Dr. Huefner often will recommend the design for the front teeth to be more rounded.  The “enhanced” smile design is one of the most popular design utilized for women, which is a more feminine smile design, not something well suited for him.  William also chose a BL2 shade from the tooth shade catalog.

After having Dr. Huefner make him eight porcelain veneers William got the great looking smile that he needed to enhance his career in real estate. His teeth were now straight, even and white and Dr. Huefner even corrected the cross bite he had on several of his left teeth.

After making William the eight porcelain veneers he had a much improved smile.  His teeth were whiter and all uniform in color.  They were straight and the cross bite on the left side corrected by making the veneers lean out instead of leaning inwards.  He got a mature, very appropriate smile design that really enhanced his professional image.

Very pleased with the end result, William couldn’t wait to show off his new teeth with his mentor.  He also had an appointment with a professional photographer later that week and he couldn’t wait to have a portrait of the new, improved William on his business card and professional advertising.

We couldn’t guarantee that William will get more listings now that he has eight porcelain veneers. But we are absolutely convinced that his improved image is going to help his career and greatly improve his chances for success in a very competitive career over his professional lifetime!

Secret Orthodontists Don’t Want Known, Teeth Can Be Straightened and Made Beautiful in Less Than A Month’s Time and WITHOUT Braces

crooked teeth before instant orthodontic treatment with porcelain veneers

Aimee not only wanted straight teeth, but she wanted a whiter smile with normal looking teeth. She could have done 12-24 months of braces treatment and then have cosmetic dentistry, but by utilizing the "instant orthodontic" technique she had straight, white, perfectly shaped teeth in three weeks time. See next photo of final results.

Most adults would love to have straight teeth.  However there are usually several reasons why adults with crooked teeth won’t undergo braces treatment:

  • treatment time usually 6-30 months
  • multiple appointments causing adults to miss work
  • orthodontics is generally more uncomfortable for adults than children (or maybe children are more tolerant?)
  • adults embarrassed to wear unattractive braces
  • when adults have braces they are usually told that they have to wear retainers for years, if not the rest of their life

And then if there are other problems with the teeth, like discoloration, chipping, ugly crowns or fillings and an adults does have orthodontic treatment the results could be straight ugly teeth that still would need some kind of cosmetic dentistry to get a beautiful smile.

This is the beautiful smile we created for Aimee by whitening her lower teeth with teeth bleaching and "straightening" her upper teeth with porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry. She got the beautiful, full smile she always wanted with whiter, brighter teeth. Note that her underbite was eliminated WITHOUT braces and she now has a fuller smile with much more attractive lip support.

But what if there were a way to get straight, white, beautiful teeth in just a couple visits to the cosmetic dentist and without braces?  The great news is that it can be done!  It isn’t talked about much in the media and has been kept as kind of a secret except on the TV show Extreme Makeover, but there is a cosmetic dentistry technique that has been successfully used for thousands of patients over the past decade called “instant orthodontics“.

But before explaining this cosmetic dental technique I want to make it very clear that even though it is called “instant orthodontics” it is actually NOT orthodontics.  Where the name “instant orthodontics” comes from is that with cosmetic dental treatment the teeth will go from being crooked to straight, looking as if they had gone through orthodontics (braces) for almost “instant” results.

Let’s examine Aimee’s teeth, one of our patients from Rancho Santa Margarita.  She had crooked teeth with an underbite (meaning some of her lower front teeth were in front of her upper front teeth when she put her teeth together).  If she were to have traditional orthodontic treatment with full braces she would be in treatment from 12 to 24 months.  However in addition to her teeth being crooked they were a very gray color and had numerous discolored fillings in them.  So to get the kind of smile she wanted, which was white, beautiful straight teeth, Aimee could either do the braces route first and then the cosmetic dentistry with porcelain veneers afterwards.  But by using the “instant orthodontic” approach with cosmetic dentistry we gave her straight white teeth without braces and in just three weeks time total!

How did we do that?  We bleached her lower teeth with the tray tooth whitening procedure that she does at home and we placed nine porcelain veneers on her upper teeth.  The porcelain veneers not only made her teeth look whiter with better shape and length, but they also made her teeth straight “as if she had” orthodontics.  No more underbite, crooked teeth, misshaped or short teeth.  And by using the “instant orthodontics” technique of porcelain veneers we were able to bring her upper teeth out to a normal overbite position.  This also gave her much more natural lip support and a fuller, broader smile rather than the sunken in smile she had before.

For more examples of this technique, go to instant orthodontics

Crooked Smile Rejuvination and Overhaul with Porcelain Veneers Orange County

orange county porcelain veneers

Melanie wanted bright white teeth and larger teeth. She had a crossbite on her upper right molars that she also wanted corrected. Dr. Huefner placed ten porcelain veneers for Melanie and she got the beautiful, symmetrical smile that she had always wanted.

Melanie was really concerned about “her crooked smile”.  She was recently divorced and starting to date again.  Since she was looking for “a good looking guy” she fully realized that she’d be more attractive herself if she had a better looking smile.  “The competition is pretty tough here in Orange County,” Melanie said, “and I know that it’s very important here that I look my very best!”

When we asked Melanie at our Orange County cosmetic dental practice what she wanted changed about her smile she had a long list:

  • my teeth are crooked
  • I have a crossbite
  • my teeth are way too dark
  • I want a bright, white smile with much larger teeth

After evaluating Melanie’s teeth and smile Dr. Huefner determined that the color, length, shape and position of her teeth were all very straight forward to correct with porcelain veneers.  However her crossbite on her right back teeth would be difficult.  The actual position of the back teeth in crossbite couldn’t be totally corrected, but porcelain veneers could be made to widen the teeth to make it appear as if she had no crossbite.  “That is OK with me,” Melanie said after hearing that, “as long as it looks like I don’t have a crossbite.”

crooked teeth with crossbite on upper right molars

Melanie felt that her teeth were crooked, discolored and she hated the crossbite on her upper right molars. Partially because of her crossbite she had lip asymmetry as well when she smiled. She wanted a perfect smile and had definite ideas as to the color, shape and position that she wanted with her cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Huefner also pointed out that when Melanie smiles she had a lip muscle asymmetry and her lower lip on her right side pulls down much more on that side, exposing her crossbite. After her cosmetic dentistry was done she should try to retrain her lips on smiling so that a more pleasing symmetrical smile would result.

Melanie preceded with porcelain veneer cosmetic dental treatment.  She definitely wanted a bright, white smile, and chose a BL1 shade from the tooth shade guide.  Also, she made it very clear that she wanted larger, more dominant looking teeth.  She chose the “mature” smile style from the LVI smile library, but asked for the cuspids to be slightly less pointy and a little more flat than the basic “mature” smile style.
