So the road to general wellness means a well balanced lifestyle with an ounce of prevention.  There are no two smiles, facial features, or physical types alike.  We are unique and wonderfully made with individual signatures.

We enjoy bringing smiles to our patients.  Below are actual clients treated by Dr. Huang to make their smiles healthy and natural.

So how may we at Village Dental Group make your smile healthy and beautiful?

BeforeThe patient's initial impression was that she disliked the shape of her two front teeth.  They were uneven in size and shape.  The right central incisor is a ceramic veneer which does not match the left central incisor.  The left central incisor had a large tooth colour restoration that was constantly fracturing.

AfterThe two central upper incisors have been restored with more natural looking ceramic veneers/restorations and are more aesthetically pleasing in size, shape, and symmetry.  The patient was quite pleased with the final result.

BeforeA young male patient with congenital missing lateral incisors.

AfterCosmetically bonded bilateral cantilever Emax Maryland bridges.  These are beautiful and very conservative in nature restoring function and aesthetics without any tooth preparation.

BeforeA patient had a right central incisor that was periodontally involved with very poor prognosis and severe gum recession.  The left central incisor is actually a bonded ceramic pontic (false tooth).

AfterThe same male patient 15 months later with a fully restored anterior segment with an implant in place of the right central incisor and a left central ceramic pontic.  Beautiful aesthetics compliment the patient's smile and function has been restored to the patient.

BeforeThe patient had a severely discoloured right central incisor. His left central incisor had uneven textured enamel at the gumline.  He wanted conservative, non-invasive treatment at best.

AfterThe patient's new smile now displays very conservative direct composite restorations bonding to the central incisors to even out the colours and textures.

BeforeAnterior crowns that were a little too light in colour with the left central incisor have a discoloured edge as this tooth had combination of filling (composite and ceramic crown).

AfterAnterior crowns that are now more natural in shape and colour (hue, chroma and value) to compliment the new smile.

BeforeA little guy only 9 years old on Thanksgiving Day was playing with his friends in the backyard jumping on the trampoline with parents supervision.  He slipped and fell down the side of the trampoline.  He hit his mouth and teeth on the metal supports fracturing his two front central incisors and luxating his lower anterior incisors.  Thank goodness we saw him right away and in 1/2 hour and were able to put his smile back together.  He was very courageous!  He is so lucky that he did not break any bones.

AfterHis after photo of his restored teeth during the same afternoon that the accident occurred on Thanksgiving Day!

BeforeThe patient had failing tooth colour restorations with decay in between his teeth that are visual with the photograph.  He was constantly getting food impaction between his teeth.? His teeth are quite worn from years of grinding.

AfterDefinitive gold restorations were placed that protected the patient's "bite".  As the restorations were beautifully contoured, it serves the patient well.  Why do we use gold casting restorations?

  1. It will not break.
  2. It allows good and smooth finish margins.
  3. It allows good tissue health.
  4. It has no mercury.
  5. It is cemented and will not abrade or wear the opposing teeth.
  6. The coefficient of expansion is similar to tooth structure.
