Before and after
There are many reasons why people contact Dr. Murphree with questions regarding their smile. Maybe they are wearing restorations that were placed years ago that don’t look as fresh as they once did.
Sometimes, Dr. Murphree can conservatively correct spaces between teeth or teeth that are discolored or damaged. A tooth that has been struck may not break, but might turn dark over time. Read about the challenges and solutions each of Dr. Murphree’s patients pictured below experienced.
Stuart came to us with short, discolored teeth, wanting a new smile. We used a combination of all-porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers on eight upper front teeth and six lowers to give him the smile he wanted. Click his portrait on the left to see before-and-after closeups.
Deborah didn’t like the discolored composite fillings in her two front teeth. She also had a mal-formed lateral incisor. All she needed to give her a beautiful smile was work on her front four teeth, and we bleached the rest. Click on her portrait to see the before-and-afters.
Kathy complained about her discolored front teeth and the spaces between the front teeth. We advised her to have some orthodontic treatment, after which we placed porcelain veneers on her front four teeth, with this result. Click on her portrait for more photos.
The shapes of Brock’s front teeth made them look crooked and left him with spaces. He also had discolored composite fillings. Orthodontic treatment would not have helped him, so we placed porcelain veneers on his front eight teeth and bleached the rest to give him this new, brighter smile.

Keith came to us with discolored, mal-aligned teeth. We restored eight upper teeth and eight lowers with a combination of porcelain veneers, all-porcelain crowns, and an all-porcelain bridge. Click the portrait to see more.
Heather had discolored composite fillings. We just placed porcelain veneers on the front four teeth and bleached the rest for this beautiful result. Click on the portrait on the left to see more photos.
Hannah had what are called peg lateral incisors—congenitally mal-formed lateral incisors. After bleaching, all she needed was porcelain veneers on just those two teeth. Click on her portrait to see more photos.
When Martha came to us, she had severely discolored front teeth as well as old porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. We replaced the porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns with natural-looking all-porcelain crowns and did porcelain veneers on the rest of her upper and lower front teeth. Click on her portrait to see more.
Oliver had discolored, crooked teeth. He didn’t want to do orthodontic treatment, but he didn’t need to. We were able to get this result in just a couple of appointments with porcelain veneers on six upper and six lower teeth. Click on his portrait to see the before-and-after photos.
