Combined Restorative & Cosmetic Procedures

Veneers & Bridges

Grand Rapids Dentist

Occasionally, specific dental conditions require the use of a combination of restorative and cosmetic techniques. The following case study demonstrates the restorative possibilities, even in cases of disfigurement or extreme dental neglect. 

Dental restorations of this magnitude require numerous office visits and can often be costly. However, the good news is that restoring dental health is now possible, even in the most challenging cases.

This procedure involved dental veneers and a porcelain fused-to-metal fixed bridge. By combining three porcelain veneers and a porcelain fused-to-metal fixed bridge, these teeth are restored not only for better appearance and function, but also for greater durability.


Full-Mouth Rehabilitation

Dentist Grand Rapids, MI

This procedure involved a full-mouth rehabilitation. Porcelain laminate veneers, porcelain crowns, and porcelain fused-to-metal fixed bridges can make a remarkable difference in the case of a challenging and complex dental situation.

It is deeply gratifying to witness the improved confidence and well-being this type of rehabilitation brings.

These procedures addressed the patient’s concerns regarding function, durability, and cosmetics. Most importantly, the work gave her occasion to smile!
