Mr. L. - 2012/2014
Case: lower porcelain veneers and crowns; upper filling
Mr. L came to us wanting the lower spaces closed as soon as possible. We discussed Adult Ortho options like Invisialign, however, the patient wanted permanent treatment that would not take months to complete. Upper and lower diagnostic models were completed. Patient bleached on a regular basis. Lower teeth were prepped for 5 all porcelain veneers and 2 crowns. The upper diastema or space between the two front teeth was filled with an esthetic bleach-shade bonding material and well polished. The veneers were completed and sent back to the lab with the patient for custom shading. Overall, the patient was very satisfied with the final outcome.
The "After" pictures were taken in the Summer 2014, almost 2 years later. I am pleased with the gingival contours and health of adjacent tissues. Part of that is due to the materials used, but an applause also goes out ot the wonderful home care of the patient. Mr. L currently wears an upper occlusal guard at night.

Ms. T came to our office as an emergency patient. Her fear of the dentist prevented her from getting the treatment she needed. We gently took care of her emergeny that day and provided options for her, from small steps to major ones. Impressed and comfortable with our office, she surprised us all by going for the comprehensive care that was best for her long term but also the most invasive. She has a beautiful and sunny personality and we at DeLucia Family Dental are proud to help it shine through her smile! Fall 2012
"I feel so fortunate to have found you for my dental emergency when I was in St. Petersburg on vacation. You and your staff were very reassuring. I loved that you were so gentle! Also, no one tried to sell me a bunch of products. Everyone was efficient and friendly but easy going, which made me calmer. I have had no problems since you fixed my broken tooth. Thank you."

"As you know I am one of those patients that it takes awhile and more anesthetic to get numb. I want to thank you, Dr. De Lucia, for allowing me the time to get numb. At the last office I had a bad experience when the dentist starting working on me before I was completely numb. I also appreciate your small hands. I didn’t have to keep my mouth open so wide."
