Below are actual patients of Dr. Mark Kleive. Every patient came to Dr. Kleive with concerns about the status of their oral health. They built a plan together which fit the needs and timing of the patients.
Carole was new to the practice and wanted the opportunity to keep her remaining teeth for a lifetime. She had experienced periodontal disease in her 20’s that had compromised the support of her teeth.
In addition, the esthetics of her smile was also significantly affected with previous dental work that did not mimic the natural beauty of her original teeth. Together with Carole, a comprehensive treatment plan was developed.
As a financial advisor for a prominent firm, Angela wanted to represent herself in the most professional manner possible. She knew that she had some chipping of her front teeth but was not sure how it developed. Most importantly, Angie wanted to explore what was possible while also being in control of her options.
We identified a number of bite issues that were contributing to the chipping that Angela was experiencing and presented a simple plan for correction and enhancement. Angela’s result demonstrates a wonderful harmony between how teeth can work well together and look fantastic!
Sue didn’t like the appearance of her silver fillings. Her new white fillings look and feel like her natural teeth.
Traditional metal fillings are no longer the only option. Porcelain inlays and onlays are a strong, durable alternative that create a more natural appearance, even as they strengthen and repair worn or damaged teeth.
Jim and his wife came to our practice as referrals from an existing patient. He was very particular about the results that he wanted to achieve and how he wanted us to help him accomplish them.
The outcome of our work together was that we accomplished Jim’s goals while also developing a relationship of trust and friendship.
Kim wanted a better smile for her wedding. We used Invisalign to straighten and broaden her smile. If you’ve always dreamed of having straight, even teeth, Invisalign could be the solution for you.
Invisalign is a new tooth straightening system that replaces the need for braces and retainers. Instead, results are achieved by a series of clear plastic trays that are custom-made for your teeth.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Chelsea had two narrow, dark teeth in her smile. Before she graduated from high-school she wanted her smile to be white and beautiful.
A very versatile solution, porcelain veneers are a simple and effective treatment for all kinds of minor cosmetic problems.
Years of coffee and food stains had diminished the color of Jim’s front teeth. He would have done it sooner had he known that he was going to have such a great result with his whitening.
Whitening provides the opportunity to restore your teeth to their original brilliance, brightening your smile and even taking years off your appearance.
Full Mouth Restoration
Janel was beginning to have problems with her previous dental work and wanted to participate in a solution that would increase her chances for long-term success. She also wanted a smile that would more appropriately express her personality and support her role as a nationally acclaimed jeweler.
Initially, provisional restorations were fabricated for Janel’s front teeth so that we could address infections and bite issues that she was experiencing. We then used Invisalign to improve the positions of Janel’s lower teeth.
Nancy had discolored fillings on her front teeth. With the newer materials we were able to replace them so they were visually undetectable.
Dental bonding is a simple way to repair very minor damage to enamel, tooth structure, and the shape or alignment of your teeth. Bonding can often be used in place of veneers to fill small holes or make cosmetic repairs.
Joakim had very short front teeth. By reshaping the gum tissue and making crowns for his front teeth, we made his smile much broader.
Whether you have a “gummy” smile or you suffer from more subtle gum issues, recontouring is a safe and effective way to improve the look and feel of your smile.
