When he was in his 20’s, Andy lost the majority of his teeth due to severe facial trauma. Removable dentures were placed to restore his smile, but they didn’t restore function or comfort. Andy could not bite into corn on the cob or apples, and could not comfortably chew any kind of food. It affected his quality of life . . . all he wanted to do was bite into an apple! Dr. Saib recommended a full mouth implant reconstruction. He replaced Andy’s dentures with solid, permanent dental implants. The results speak for themselves. And bet of all? Andy can eat whatever he likes with complete comfort and confidence again.
Susan had a very healthy mouth, but she wasn’t happy with the appearance of her smile. She had mismatched restorations, known as patchwork dentistry, that were the result of a previous dentist’s approach of taking care of one tooth at a time. After years of putting up with a less-than-perfect smile, Susan knew she was ready for an improvement. Dr. Saib updated her dental restorations, treating her smile as a whole . . .not just as individual teeth. Her transformation was profound, affecting more than her appearance. As is evident in her photo, her confidence has soared too!
As an executive in a local I.T. company, Brandon was in front of people all day long. His appearance was important to his profession.

Don had a bite imbalance that resulted in significant tooth wear. The tooth wear was so severe that the teeth had been worn down to the gum line in some areas.

Restoring Don’s mouth with porcelain crowns and bridges, Dr. Saib returned his teeth to health, his jaw to balance and his smile to an attractive appearance.
As a child in Europe, Ava’s teeth had been filled with large restorations and amalgam fillings. As a result, her teeth were overfilled and weak. All that metal in her mouth was discoloring her teeth. She went to see Dr. Saib for a solution. He recommended a full mouth reconstruction, but her bite – which was out of balance – was a challenge. To restore her teeth and jaw to optimum health, balance and function, Dr. Saib used all porcelain crowns on the teeth that are visible, and to compensate for her complicated bite, he restored some teeth with gold crowns. However, he made sure that the gold crowns aren’t visible when she smiles, laughs or talks. Ava and her husband absolutely love her new smile!
