Smiles light up the room and warm hearts, especially when you feel confident in the way your teeth look and feel.
Here are some of our before and after photos of actual Lakeforest Dental Associates patients. We love improving lives by giving patients the smiles they have always wanted.
This patient came in because a front tooth filling fell out and looked unsightly. We removed the decay and did a layered resin/composite filling so it's not visible.
This gentleman came in with broken lower front teeth. We removed the teeth, completed Invisalign treatment to close spaces between the teeth and then restored the missing teeth with Implants.
Patient was unhappy with his smile and the spaces between his teeth. Invisalign helped him to smile more confidently.
If you thought braces were just for kids, think again! With more options to straighten crooked teeth than ever before, more and more adults are turning to treatments like Invisalign to get straighter teeth later in life.
Clear Braces For Adults
Invisalign clear braces allow adults to straighten their teeth without having to wear bulky, obvious metal braces.
This patient's "before" photo shows their crooked, misaligned teeth and the gaps between the top and bottom rows of their smile. However, by using adult braces, we pulled their teeth into alignment and produced a straighter, healthier smile.

This young lady had a missing front tooth for years. She had a bridge done to replace the tooth but was very unhappy with how it looked. We made a newer, more natural bridge to replace her old one. She is extremely satisfied.
This young man was unhappy with his smile. We did Invisalign Orthodontics to straighten his teeth.
The young lady lost her front tooth in an accident. We made a Zirconia (non-metallic) bridge to fill in the gap, along with tooth whitening for a more esthetic end result.
Lady was concerned about misshapen and discolored front teeth. Crowns were done on the two front teeth to get an esthetic result she was very pleased with.
She was unhappy with her smile. The two crowns were over 15 years old, and she wanted them replaced. For better aesthetics and a harmonious smile, we did non-metallic crowns on four front teeth.
Patient had missing teeth and unsightly partial dentures with metal clasps for many years. His grand children pointed it out to him. We made new partial dentures with no visible clasps. He loves his new smile, as do his grand children too!
Patient had missing teeth and wore a partial denture for many years. We whitened her teeth, and then replaced the missing teeth with a fixed bridge.
Patient was unhappy with his smile. He felt his teeth were too far out, and did not like his existing partial denture to replace his tooth. We did Invisalign to straighten his teeth and replaced his front tooth with an implant.
This patient was very conscious of his front teeth and rarely smiled. We made crowns to cover the discolored teeth, and now he never stops smiling.
If you ever lose a natural tooth, you'll want to replace it with something strong, sturdy, and reliable. At Lakeforest Dental Associates, we believe dental implants are the best of the best for tooth replacement options.
Dental Implants Restore Smiles
As you can see from these photos, this patient lost her lower front teeth. Missing teeth that are left unreplaced can eventually damage the rest of the smile, so our dental office wanted to help this patient fill the gaps with an excellent artificial option.

He had an existing old bridge that had to be replaced. An Implant supported bridge was used to replace the missing teeth, and 2 crowns were also done to harmonize the smile.
Your front teeth are arguably the most important part of your smile, which means you need the very best tooth replacement options available if anything ever happens to them.
Replacing Missing Front Teeth
The young lady in these photos lost her top front teeth, so we got to work helping her repair her mouth and create a beautiful smile she could once again feel proud of.
Invisalign clear braces came to the rescue during the first step of her treatment, where we closed the gap between some of the teeth. Once Invisalign was complete, we then relied on a dental implant ...
This lady had an older unesthetic bridge. We replaced it with a new bridge that gives a harmonious balanced smile.
Even when you're extremely cautious about your oral health, dental emergencies can still happen and leave you in need of restorative dentistry. Luckily, your Gaithersburg dentist can usually repair an injured tooth and send you on your way in no time!
Fixing a Broken Tooth
In these photos, this young boy had broken his front tooth playing soccer. Although it may look like his tooth was broken beyond repair, we made the tooth whole again, and he left smiling!
To fix broken teeth, we use a combination of tooth-colored fillings and dental bonding. Sturdy materials like composite dental resin help us mimic ...
