Featured Patient Story Jamie

Jamie is a cosmetic dentistry patient from Palos Verdes Estates who had concerns about her smile. Her teeth had become very worn from bruxism or grinding and she was experiencing some problems with an existing crown. Jamie and her mother were referred to Fulbright Dental by a friend who had a smile makeover performed by Dr. Fulbright.

When Jamie met with Dr. Fulbright she explained that she was unhappy with the size, length, color and overall look of her teeth and smile appearance. She told Dr. Fulbright that she wanted her smile to be bigger and brighter. After an initial exam, digital x-rays and evaluation Dr. Fulbright discussed Jamie’s options and a custom treatment plan to achieve her smile goals. The treatment plan included a dental implants, dental crowns, Zoom teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

The first step in Jamie’s smile transformation was Zoom teeth whitening which was completed in one easy office visit. During her second visit Dr. Fulbright took photos, study models, face bow and bite registrations so that Jamie’s bite would be corrected in addition to the smile enhancement. After just a couple more visits Jamie had the smile a lifetime, a new bite and restored tooth structure.

During treatment Dr. Fulbright utilized advanced dental equipment and materials such as Ivoclar Soft Tissue Diode Laser, CEREC 3D for posterior restorations using Ivoclar EMAX porcelain, W&H Electric Handpieces, Schick Digital X-Rays, and Kerr NX3 Resin Cement to ensure Jamie’s ultimate comfort and the best results possible. “Knowing that Jamie can now be proud of her teeth and be able to laugh and smile without being self conscious means a lot to me.”, said Dr. Fulbright.
