June's Story...

BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS UTILIZING OUR KoR WHITENING DEEP BLEACHING SYSTEM

AMAZING before and after photos utilizing our Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System.  This patient has tried other whitening systems in the past but did not achieve the results she wished for.  After discussing her options for whitening her teeth with Dr. Friedman during her complimentary consultation, the patient decided to try our Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System.

Thousands of dentists around the world agree that Kor Whitening is by far the most reliable and effective whitening system ever developed.  In fact, the Kor Whitening System is so effective, it is the only recognized whitening system that whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time (previously thought to be impossible).

If you have questions about our Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System, or would like to schedule your complimentary consultation, phone Jess today...858-547-0070.

Elizabeth's Story...

SMILE MAKE-OVER UTILIZING UPPER 8 PORCELAIN VENEERS & ZOOM IN-OFFICE WHITENING PROCEDURE

This patient just turned 60 and was unhappy with her existing smile.  She had upper 6 crowns done 20 years prior.  With the significant upgrade of cosmetic dental materials & procedures, she wished to learn her options for a brighter, wider smile also closing the black spaces that developed between her teeth over the years.

Lets just say this patient was so happy with her new smile….. Lunch was on her :)

Monica's Story...

SMILE MAKE-OVER UTILIZING LASER GUM RECONTOURING, ZOOM WHITENING, UPPER 4 PORCELAIN VENEERS

  

This patient visited with Dr. Friedman for a complimentary consultation eager to learn options for her smile utilizing porcelain veneers.  The patient was a grinder and her front four teeth suffered from this.  The patient’s front four teeth were worn, thin, and discolored.

During the patient’s cosmetic consultation, Dr. Friedman took some digital photos. Dr.  Friedman then digitally enhanced the patient’s before photos, giving her an idea of what porcelain veneers would look like enhancing her existing smile.  Dr. Friedman spoke to the patient about laser gum recontouring, or removing excess gum tissue in her smile line.  This would give the patient a larger smile.  Dr. Friedman spoke to the patient about her options for whitening her teeth.  Dr. Friedman recommended ninety minute Zoom in- office procedure for a whiter smile and then placing four porcelain veneers on her upper four teeth to match the lighter color of her remaining smile line.

The patient was seen by Dr. Friedman and the MOD Squad Team for two office visits.  The above before and after photos show her amazing results.  Monica could not have been happier with her new smile and just loves when her family & friends notice and comment on her pearly whites!

Keala's Story...

SMILE MAKE-OVER UTILIZING UPPER 8 PORCELAIN VENEERS, LASER GUM TREAMENT, & LOWER WHITENING

BEFORE AND DIGITALLY ENHANCED PHOTOS

BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS

This patient visited MOD Squad Dental for her complimentary cosmetic consultation. She wanted a wider, brighter smile and explained to Doc Friedman and Jess she felt like she did not show her teeth when she smiled. Dr. Friedman took digital photos and utilizing his smile imaging software, designed a new smile for her focusing on her requests and concerns. (1st photo above) She was able to view these photos at her initial consultation. She loved her options and began the process of her cosmetic smile make-over. Dr. Friedman utilized upper 8 porcelain veneers and whitening the patients lower teeth with at home whitening trays. Keala is thrilled with the results and loves showing off her new smile to everyone.

CORRECTIVE SMILE MAKE-OVER REPLACING UPPER 10 PROCERA CROWNS WITH UPPER 10 EMPRESS CROWNS

AFTER CORRECTIVE SMILE MAKE-OVER...REPLACING UPPER 10 PROCERA CROWNS WITH UPPER 10 EMPRESS CROWNS

Thinking about cosmetic dentistry? Make sure to only pay once for your new smile!

This patient was thrilled when she had a smile make-over with Dr. Friedman back in 1999. Dr. Friedman placed upper 8 porcelain veneers for this patient giving her a wider, and brighter smile. Unfortunately, this patient moved out of state and went in for a regular check-up in 2011.

To make a long story short...she was told she had "gross" decay around her veneers and open margins (veneers/crowns that do not fit properly). This dentist suggested she replace her upper 8 veneers with upper 11 full coverage procera crowns. The patient was terrified for the health of her teeth and replaced her existing restorations as diagnosed by this dentist. The results of the treatment are above. The patient was horrified. Not only does her smile lack natural aesthetics, the new length of the full coverage crowns caused the patient a profound lisp, the smile shape resemble that of a flat denture, and the color variation in her porcelain is not present.

She phoned Dr. Friedman, and spoke to Jessica explaining the situation. Jessica, Dr. Friedman's office manager, arranged the patients hotel reservations with the Hard Rock Hotel in the MOD Squad suite, scheduled all her visits to MOD Squad Dental, and explained in detail the smile correction make-over process. The patient not only enjoyed beautiful sunny San Deigo for 4 days, but also corrected her smile. The patient brought in her xrays from the other office which were used to diagnose the "decay and open margins". Dr. Friedman reviewed the xrays. No decay and/or open margins were present. This patient allowed me to share her story so that maybe she could keep future patients from this same expensive, and just not necessary situation.

 

Sharon's Story...

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER 2 PORCELAIN VENEERS & ZOOM TEETH WHITENING

This patient has 2 crowns done years ago on her front two teeth. The crown material used for her crowns and still used in many offices are metal crowns with porcelain fused to it. As you can see, this type of material stands out in photos and is not pleasing to her smile. Dr. Friedman used the Zoom Whitening process to whiten her teeth then replaced the upper two crowns with all porcelaon crowns that match perfectly.

"I am thrilled with the results and can not stop smiling" Sharon T.

Mara's Story...

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER 4 PORCELAIN VENEERS & TEETH WHITENING WITH CUSTOM TRAYS

This patient wanted to improve her reverse smile....WOW, Beautiful!!!! 
She visited Dr. Friedman's office considering her options for correcting her reverse smile. She had been a grinder for many years and worn her front 4 teeth causing a reverse smile line. She also has a slight narrow smile. Doctor Friedman and Jessica discussed with her the option of 4 vs. 8 porcelain veneers. 4 veneers would correct her reverse smile line, and 8 would correct her reverse smile line and also give her a wider smile. After reviewing her complimentary smile imaging before & after photos, the patient chose the 4 porcelain veneers. The patient whitened her teeth with custom home whitening trays. Four porcelain veneers were then placed matching her color beautifully. She could not be more thrilled with her results!!!!!

Alexa's Story...

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER 2 PORCELAIN VENEERS & BONDING

BEFORE & AFTER PHOTO AFTER FALLING ON ASPHALT

Alexa had an accident at school one Saturday evening. She fell running to her car in the rain on rough asphalt. Dr. Friedman met her at the office on Sunday and let her know everything was going to be fixed and look beautiful. Alexa still had some asphalt stuck on her teeth and in her lips. The patient not only feared for her smile but was also worried about a large skin tag that was formed from  the impact on her upper lip. Alexa broke 3 teeth in her accident. She needed 2 root canals on her front teeth as she broke off more than half of these teeth. Dr. Friedman removed the skin tag and prepped the patient for 2 full porcelain crowns and placed a white filling on the neighboring broken tooth. Alexa was thrilled with the results as you can see from her HUGE final photo smile.

 

Whitney's Story...

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER 8 PORCELAIN VENEERS & ZOOM WHITENING

BEFORE PHOTO & AFTER PHOTO

This patient phoned the office interested in changing her smile but was not sure of her options to do so. She was scheduled for her complimentary consultation with Dr. Friedman and Jessica. She had a narrow smile, some misalignment, and her teeth were different sizes. She wished for a wider, brighter smile that "showed" more teeth. Digital photos were taken for digital imaging. Digital imaging gave her the opportunity to view options for her smile before making a decision. Together Dr. Friedman and the patient decided upper 8 porcelain veneers were the best option. We Zoom whitened her lower teeth for a boost of whiteness. The patient was scheduled for 2 appointments. The first appointment we placed upper 8 temporary restorations. She decided on a couple of minor changes that were built into her final porcelain restorations. Her final porcelain restorations were placed and the patient could not be happier with the results.

**Dr. Friedman always recommends wearing "temporary restorations" when considering porcelain restorations. This allows the patient a trial run with their new smile. If any changes are desired by the patient, longer, shorter, more square etc, these changes are made to their final porcelain restorations.

RIGHT SIDE LASER GINGIVECTOMY COMPLETED

ONE WEEK AFTER LASER GINGIVECTOMY UPPER 4 TEETH

Do you feel you show too much of your gums when you smile?

Do feel you show more PINK than WHITE when you smile?

Some patients feel that the solution to this problem is extremely expensive and painful. Gum contouring or laser gingivectomy is actually a common procedure done by Dr. Greg Friedman and Mod Squad Dental. With the latest in dental laser technology, the procedure is done with local anesthetic and completed in 1 visit, and heals very quickly with 1-2 days.

The above photos are of a 18 yr old female that felt her teeth were small and made her look like a little girl. Doc did laser gingivectomy on her upper 4 teeth. The results were AWESOME!!! The patient LOVES her new smile.

This patient visited with Dr. Friedman for her complimentary cosmetic consultation wanting a wider smile that showed more teeth. She felt when she smiled that she did not show her teeth in her smile. The patient had just finished Invisalign (clear tray braces) which straightened her teeth but did not change the shape or size of her teeth which was her major complaint. After discussing her options with Dr. Friedman and Jess, they decided upper 8 porcelain veneers would give her a wider smile that showed more of her teeth when smiling.

After 2 visits with Dr. Friedman, the patient could not be more thrilled with her new smile.

BEFORE PHOTO & AFTER PHOTO

This patient visited Dr. Friedman's office hating her smile. She had some old white fillings in her smile line that were stained and discolored from her soda habit. She also did not like the way her teeth were shaped. She thought some were small and some were too skinny. She visited with Dr. Friedman and Jessica for her complimentary consultation and viewed digitally enhanced photos of the smile she could have utilizing Dr. Friedman's imaging software. Collectively they decided to do a gum treatment, crown lengthening, removing excess gum tissue with a laser, then placing upper 8 porcelain veneers. Her smile-make over was completed in 2 visits. She was thrilled with the results and since has secured an acting job with Bravo. Awesome job!!!

Nikhil's Story...

COMPOSITE BONDING

BEFORE PICTURES (UP-CLOSE, LINGUAL VIEW)

AFTER PHOTOS...CLOSE UP AND SMILE

Oopsi—— This 16 year old had a skate board accident. He broke 2 front teeth in his smile line. The breaks were really deep penetrating the nerve of each tooth. Dr. Friedman bonded both teeth with composite material matching his surrounding teeth perfectly the day he came into the office.

Dr. Friedman discussed with the patient and his family the possibility of the teeth turning  gray in days, weeks, or even years later from the nerve damage. If this were to happen, Dr. Friedman would place all porcelain crowns on the two teeth matching the rest of his surrounding teeth and smile.

Dr. Friedman is very conservative and will always discuss treatment giving the patients a better understanding of their dental situation. This patient was very pleased with his result.

Johnathan's Story...

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER & LOWER SNAP-ON SMILE


BEFORE DENTAL TREATMENT

AFTER WEARING SNAP ON SMILE

This story touches my heart as this patient has a great personality and career that was not being represented by his current smile. This patient had not visited a dentist for many years but desired help for his teeth and oral health. He will need extensive surgical procedures for his bone loss and to place permanent fixed dental restorations in the future. Dr. Friedman discussed with the patient his option for the use of a Snap on Smile. After the patient was cleaned with our dental hygienist, Doc Friedman did caries control removing all his current cavities. Doc Friedman took some impressions of his teeth and together with Snap on Smile developed a smile this patient could wear with confidence until he is able to proceed with his more permanent treatment and additional procedures. The final smile speaks for itself.

Katie's Story...

FULL MOUTH RECONTRUCTION-UPPER 10 PORCELAIN VENEERS, ALL PORCELAIN CROWNS, ZOOM WHITENING, & WHITE FILLINGS

BEFORE DENTAL TREATMENT

This patient was so afraid of going to the dentist, shestayed away as long as possible. She has been engaged for some time now and dreamed of taking her wedding portraits with a smile that represented her excitement inside. As a wedding gift she has started her journey to a smile she can share with the world.

Katie had seen other dentist but was not completely comfortable. After visiting with Dr. Friedman and Jess, a detailed treatment plan was presented to the patient for her full mouth reconstruction.

We have seen this patient for her first of two appointments to complete her treatment. Dr. Friedman was able to do several hours of her dental work as the patient decided on conscious sedation for her appointment. Because of the sedation process, Doc was able to spend several hours with the patient allowing her entire treatment to be completed in only 2 appointments. The picture attached is her before photo and the one to below is her smile with her temporary veneer restorations. We will be seeing her again later this month. You are going to want to follow up on this amazing story as I know the end result will be one to smile about.

ZOOM 2 IN-OFFICE WHITENING PROCEDURE

BEFORE ZOOM WHITENING & AFTER ZOOM WHITENING

This patient visited the office after not seeing a dentist for several years. He was seen by one of our hygienist and was told "NO CAVITIES". He was interested in bleaching his teeth. 2 days after his cleaning he was seen for a 90 minute Zoom whitening procedure and bleached out 5 shades lighter. He was very pleased and was given home maintenance trays to continue with his bleaching at his preference at home. Great Result!!

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER 8 PORCELAIN VENEERS & ZOOM WHITENING

BEFORE SMILE MAKEOVER

This patient has been a long time patient of Dr. Friedman and Mod Squad Dental. After moving to Hong Kong and deciding she was ready for a smile makeover, she could not imagine working with any other dentist. After taking impressions and deciding with Dr. Friedman on her ideal smile shape and color, she looks fabulous. She had a beautiful smile before but wanted a wider, brighter smile. This patient had some white composite fillings within her smile that over time had changed color. The size of her teeth were very comparable to the end result she desired. After two appointments with Dr. Friedman the end result speaks for itself. AMAZING!!!!

Suzanne's Story...

SMILE MAKE OVER-UPPER 8 PORCELAIN VENEERS & 6 MONTH BRACES ON THE LOWERS



                                               BEFORE & AFTER PHOTO, UPPER 8 FINAL PORCELAIN VENEERS, STILL IN LOWER BRACES

This patient flew in from Louisiana on a Friday and stayed for one week in San Diego. She had visited with Doc Friedman and Jessica over the phone via video skype and discussed her options of treatment for the desired smile she had been wanted for many years. She planned on getting as much work done on this visit as possible. Dr. Friedman saw this patient for her first visit and did all of her pre-treatment procedures. We took several before photos and digitally enhanced them to give her an idea of her desired smile. Dr. Friedman and Jessica gave their options on the shape that would look best with her hair color, skin tone, height, and weight. All of these factors make a difference for the end result.

Suzanne was placed in braces on the first visit and on the very next day we sedated the patient with conscious sedation and prepared her upper 8 teeth for her porcelain veneers. The pictures above are her before photo and her after photo with temporary veneers. She will be wearing her temporaries for 6 days while her final porcelain veneers are being generated. Dr. Friedman prefers his patients to wear temporary restorations as this is their "test drive before buying the car". Any changes the patient would like to make would be made during this period. She will return to the office for one final visit to place the final porcelain veneers on her upper 8 teeth creating a gorgeous smile. With the advancements with orthodontic material and technique, she will only be seen for 3-4 visits to complete the straightening process of her lower teeth.

UPDATE: FINAL PHOTO AFTER HER LOWER BRACES WERE REMOVED

WOW!!! I never could have imagined how changing my smile could change the way I speak to people and how it gives me so much more confidence in my everyday life. Thanks Dr. Greg & Mod Squad Dental"!!

This patient and his mother visited Dr. Friedman's office for a complimenary consultation. The patient had an under bite and had visited several other doctors for suggestions on treatment. He was told his only option to correct his under bite was to break his jaw and surgically reposition his lower jaw by having his mouth wired shut for several weeks.  After visiting with Dr. Friedman, and discussing his many options, they decided on placing porcelain veneers on his upper 10 teeth to give the appearance of his bite being corrected.

Jacob's dental treatment was completed in 2 visits with out surgery. Dr. Friedman took the left photo during the patient's consultation visit and utilizing his digital software, was able to show the patient and his mother a preview of what his smile would look like after the veneers were placed.

<

                                                                                      BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS

This patient lives over seas and wanted to change his smile for many years. Mario visited several doctors where he lived and did not have a comfortable feeling about their suggestions or the dental equipment they were using. He found us on the internet and stated he was very impressed with our website, and advanced dental equipment and procedures utilized by Dr. Friedman. He phoned the office and spoke to Jessica for several minutes discussing details of veneers and time needed for such a procedure. Jessica set up a video interview for the patient and Dr. Friedman to get an idea of his current situation and concerns. After the video interview, the patient was scheduled for upper 10 porcelain veneers and the Zoom whitening procedure for his lowers. The patient was originally told he would need a root canal on his front tooth as it was completely rotated sideways. Dr. Friedman prepped the upper 10 veneers, and the patient wore his temporary veneers for 1 week while his final were being constructed.

**Dr. Friedman always recommends wearing "temporary restorations" when considering porcelain restorations. This allows the patient a trial run with their new smile. If any changes are desired by the patient, longer, shorter, more square etc, these changes are made to their final porcelain restorations.

Dr. Friedman did not need to complete a root canal on his front tooth. The patient returned and had his upper final porcelain veneers delivered and flew home the next day. He loves his new smile and has stopped in since for a visit and cleaning.

Collin's Story...

UPPER 8 PORCELAIN VENEERS AND ZOOM WHITENING ON THE LOWERS

This patient has been a patient of Dr. Friedman for many years. At one of his routine dental appointments, he asked his options for closing the space between his front teeth. His teeth were a little misaligned and that concerned him as well. Dr. Friedman suggested the patient place upper 8 porcelain veneers which changed the shape and alignment of his smile. After Zoom whitening on the lower teeth and 2 visits with Dr. Friedman, the patient loves his new smile!!!

Kerry's Story...

DIGITAL ENHANCED PHOTO OF UPPER 10 PORCELAIN VENEERS & ZOOM WHITENING ON THE LOWERS

This patient visited Dr. Friedman asking for a new smile. She had a root canal when she was younger on 1 of her front 2 teeth. Afterward, the dentist placed “bonding” or composite filling material on the tooth. The patient at the time was not finish growing and bonding was the temporary choice to restore her tooth after the root canal. Now that the patient is older, and her facial features are mature, Dr. Friedman spoke to her about a more permanent procedure by placing 2 porcelain restorations on her front 2 teeth. Dr. Friedman suggested to the patient that she bleach her teeth with our in-office whitening process, Zoom 2, to give her the optimal color choice as her porcelain restorations will never change color and/or shape. The patient also mentioned she did not like her “gummy smile”. Dr. Friedman and the patient decided they would do a procedure to expose more of her natural tooth and remove the excess gum tissue on her upper 8 teeth utilizing the laser for fast and predictable healing. Dr. Friedman imaged the patients before photo and gave her some ideas of her many possibilities of changing her smile.

Visit us again to see her final result and changed smile. I simply can not wait!!

This patient had been to several dentists and had several procedures done to her front 4 teeth. She orginally had spaces between her upper 4 teeth and wanted to know her options to close them. When we saw the patient for her complimentary consultation appointment, she had bonding (composite material) placed on her upper 4 teeth with another dentist. She did not like the result. As you can see in her before picture inset to the left, the bonding was several different colors on the front 4 teeth and the gum levels were not even and very low. Dr. Friedman did some gum recontouring with his laser on the front 4 teeth making the gum levels even and taking away excess gum tissue. The patient then did the Zoom in-office whitening system on her entire mouth. After achieving her ideal shade, Dr. Friedman placed upper 4 porcelain veneers. With 3 visits, this patient final got the results for her smile she had been searching for. What a GREAT smile!!

ZOOM WHITENING IN OFFICE PROCEDURE

                                                                BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS OF BOTH FACE AND CLOSE-UP SMILE

This patient visited the office as a new patient as it was time for her routine exam and/or oral hygeine visit. She was interested in whitening her teeth. Jessica spoke to the patient in detial and described the several different options for whitening her teeth from using home bleaning trays to porcelain veneers. Together they came to the conclusion that the Zoom office procedure would be the best for the patient both financially and for her ideal end result. She was seen the next day for the 2 hour procedure and was thrilled with the results shown above. Great smile..........
