Smile Makeovers performed by Dr. Andrew Turchin, Cosmetic Dentist in Aspen, Colorado
Below are some examples of work done by Dr. Andrew Turchin. Each smile is custom designed for the patient's taste and face, while always maintaining a natural look.
This 26 year old woman came to us requesting Cathryn Zeta-Jones' smile. She presented with moderate to severe wear on her front teeth because of a bite and tooth position problem. By correcting her tooth position and bite, her chewing stroke is no longer impeded by the position of her upper teeth. In addition, the new tooth position gives her more lip support for a fuller lip. But most important, she likes her smile better than Cathryn Zeta-Jones'.
This young woman came to our practice unhappy with the wear and erosion on her teeth, and was concerned about the long term implications for her health and beauty. We were able to rebuild her smile which also improved the curve of her lower lip. In addition, the form and function of her back teeth were restored to their natural sharp unworn state. A perfect example of the integration of health and beauty.
This gentleman was unhappy with the appearance of his teeth. We designed a new smile with veneers to improve his lower lip assymetry.
This gentleman in his early 60's had severe wear on his front teeth. He was content with his smile and concerned fixing his teeth would result in a "fake looking smile". Because we didn't want his porcelain to break like his natural teeth did, we corrected the bite problems that had been a major factor in his teeth grinding and wear. He is extremely happy with his new balanced bite, which made his jaw more comfortable than ever, and his new natural and age appropriate smile. Notice his improved lower lip curvature as we restored a natural unworn tooth length.
This 45yo patient complained of have 4 front veneers that he didn't think looked natural. Although the ideal treatment for the most natural look would be to redo them in beautiful handcrafted porcelain by our ceramist Federico Lacco, the patient opted to see if I can adjust the shape, contour, and texture to improve the realism. The patient was ecstatic at the results of a short appointment to do just that. Not ideal, but much more natural. This is a great example at how the smallest details in shape and texture can be the difference between unnatural looking veneers(often referred to as chicklets) or natural looking veneers.
This 43 year old woman wanted bigger lighter teeth. We designed a smile that met those criteria and looked natural. The added bonus is the beneficial changes in her upper and especially her lower lip where the bumps are now gone. And with her corrected bite, her muscles should stay more relaxed giving a subtle botox like effect and slow down the aging process in the her long life ahead.
This is another great example of improved lip symmetry after improving the teeth. This patient chose 10 uppper and 6 lower veneers to improve the esthetics and function of his smile.
