Dental Implants

Five months ago, this gentleman sought consultation with Dr Sage due to issues with his lower denture, which was loose and allowed food to become trapped underneath. After assessing the thickness of his jawbone, Dr. Sage recommended an implant-supported denture as the optimal solution, tailored to the patient’s desire to avoid bone grafting or any complex procedures. The patient is now extremely satisfied with his new denture, enjoying significant improvements such as the elimination of food trapping under the denture, exceptional retention, and the ease with which he can now enjoy his favourite rare-cooked steak. The denture’s secure fit is such that he finds it quite difficult to remove.

In addition to the lower denture solution, the patient expressed discomfort with his removable upper denture and sought a more permanent solution that could be implemented promptly. Following a thorough consultation, he underwent the extraction of all remaining upper teeth and received six implants (All-on-6) with an immediate fixed bridge loaded the same day. The entire procedure was performed under local anaesthesia, guided by a surgical plan informed by his Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scan. This fixed bridge serves as a temporary solution while his gums heal from the extractions. He is scheduled to return in six months for the fitting of a permanent bridge, marking the completion of his dental restoration journey.

The process of implant placement can be succinctly illustrated through a series of informative pictures, which detail each critical step. Initially, a comprehensive assessment of all teeth, bone, and gum tissue is conducted. Following this, study models are meticulously crafted in the laboratory to accurately replicate the jaw’s relationship and structure. Once the implant is positioned, a temporary bridge is immediately installed, allowing the implant to integrate with the bone for approximately three months. This crucial phase ensures a stable and harmonious connection between the bone and the implant. After four months, the final step involves crafting a permanent crown for the implant, which then replaces the temporary bridge, completing the restoration process and leaving the patient with a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

Combination Of Implants & 6 Month Smile

When art and science collaborate, the boundaries of possibility are expanded. This is exemplified in the treatment of a missing Upper Left second tooth, accompanied by a gap between the upper front teeth and outward shifting. The position of the upper left first tooth was meticulously corrected, setting the stage for the restoration of the missing tooth. A single titanium implant, coupled with a metal-free crown, was selected for its compatibility and aesthetic appeal. This approach not only restored the missing tooth but also harmonized the dental alignment and appearance, showcasing the seamless integration of artistic vision and scientific precision in achieving exceptional dental outcomes.

Dental Veneers

A complete veneer transformation was undertaken for the upper teeth, focusing on reshaping the second and third teeth on both sides to achieve a Hollywood-standard smile. The shade of the veneers was meticulously selected according to the client’s preferences, ensuring a personalized and satisfying result.

This case represents a comprehensive smile makeover, employing a combination of metal-free crowns and bridges alongside Emax veneers to address various dental concerns. The makeover was necessitated by the absence of the upper right second and fourth teeth, as well as the presence of older crowns in the lower jaw that exhibited unsightly dark lines at their margins. The restoration utilized a blend of metal-free crowns and veneers to seamlessly replace missing teeth and rejuvenate the existing crowns, culminating in a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing smile.

This case highlights the transformative power of full veneer treatment, meticulously crafted to bestow upon the patient their ideal smile. Prior to initiating treatment, all of the patient’s upper teeth either bore the marks of previous dental fillings or suffered from discolouration. Through the comprehensive application of veneers, each tooth was revitalized, achieving a uniformly radiant and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This procedure not only enhanced the visual aspect of the smile but also restored confidence and satisfaction in the patient, demonstrating the significant impact of dental aesthetics on overall well-being.

In another instance of dental artistry, the patient presented with an Upper Right second tooth that was notably smaller than the norm. The solution came in the form of a meticulously crafted Emax veneer, which was used to seamlessly enlarge and reshape the tooth. This simple yet effective application of a single veneer resulted in a significant improvement in the symmetry and harmony of the patient’s smile, underlining the importance of precision and customization in cosmetic dentistry.

A remarkable case of smile enhancement was achieved through the strategic use of just one veneer. This instance underscores the potential of targeted cosmetic procedures to effect substantial changes in a person’s appearance and self-esteem. By addressing a singular aesthetic concern, the dental team was able to dramatically transform the patient’s smile, proving that sometimes, a minimal intervention can lead to maximally satisfying results. Each of these cases exemplifies the personalized approach and technical expertise required to meet diverse dental goals, highlighting the role of cosmetic dentistry in achieving not just improved oral health, but also enhanced quality of life.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding offers a swift and effective solution to enhance the shape, colour, and overall appearance of your teeth in just a single visit. This highly cost-effective treatment ensures a pain-free experience, yielding results that are both natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing. Ideal for those seeking significant improvements without the commitment to more invasive procedures, composite bonding stands out as a practical choice for cosmetic dental enhancement. By meticulously sculpting and colouring the composite material, dental professionals can achieve remarkable transformations tailored to each patient’s unique desires, ensuring satisfaction with their rejuvenated smile.

Reiterating the advantages of composite bonding, this treatment method beautifully enhances the shape, colour, and overall appearance of your teeth through a single, short visit to the dentist. Emphasizing its cost-effectiveness and the pain-free nature of the procedure, composite bonding is distinguished by its ability to deliver entirely natural results. This approach not only rectifies aesthetic concerns but also preserves the integrity of the tooth structure, making it an excellent option for those seeking immediate and noticeable improvements in their smile.

One notable case involved addressing an open bite and discolouration issue through composite bonding, expertly performed by Dr. Maish Sage. This procedure not only corrected the functional aspects of the bite but also significantly improved the visual appeal of the teeth, showcasing the versatile benefits of composite bonding in enhancing both oral health and cosmetic appearance in a single, cohesive treatment plan.

For all smile makeover cases, a detailed preparatory process is undertaken, beginning with the creation of study models. These models are followed by a meticulous wax-up, allowing both the dentist and the patient to envision the potential outcome of the new smile. This collaborative approach ensures that the patient’s expectations are fully aligned with the treatment plan. Once approval is obtained, the envisioned changes are precisely transferred onto the patient’s teeth, marking the first step towards achieving a radiant and confident smile. This thorough process underscores the commitment to excellence and patient satisfaction inherent in every smile makeover journey.

Smile Makeovers

Addressing severe overjet and gaps between teeth through alignment and a comprehensive smile makeover can profoundly transform not only your smile but also your overall confidence. This corrective approach focuses on not just the aesthetic enhancement of your smile, but also on improving dental health and function. By meticulously realigning your teeth, gaps are closed, and the overjet is corrected, leading to a harmonious, well-proportioned smile. This transformation is more than cosmetic; it’s a step towards bolstering your self-esteem and comfort in your daily interactions. The end result is a completely different smile that radiates confidence, reflecting the positive changes in both your appearance and dental health. Such interventions demonstrate the powerful impact of dental aesthetics and functional correction on an individual’s quality of life.

Six Month Smile


Transforming severe crowding into aligned teeth and a radiant smile was achieved in just 7 months. This remarkable transformation not only enhanced the visual appeal of the smile but also improved dental functionality and health. Through a focused and carefully planned treatment, the patient’s dental alignment issues were addressed, resulting in a confident and lovely smile. This case underscores the effectiveness of modern orthodontic techniques in achieving significant cosmetic and structural improvements within a relatively short timeframe.

In another case, uneven bites and crooked teeth, including two lower teeth that were positioned towards the tongue and not within the arch, were successfully aligned in just 6.5 months. This adjustment not only corrected the aesthetic concerns but also resolved functional issues, enhancing the patient’s overall oral health. The re-positioning of the teeth into their correct places within 6-7 months showcases the efficiency and precision of contemporary orthodontic practices.

Addressing a 5-6 mm gap between the upper front teeth was accomplished in 6 months, demonstrating the speed and affordability of the Six Month Smile program. This efficient treatment provided a satisfactory and aesthetically pleasing result, closing the gap and significantly enhancing the patient’s smile. The Six Month Smile program is celebrated for its ability to deliver fast and effective solutions to common dental alignment issues, proving that a beautiful smile is within reach for many.

Lastly, an open bite and gap between teeth were corrected in just 6 months. This swift correction not only improved the aesthetic appearance of the smile but also addressed functional problems associated with the open bite and spacing issues. The success of this treatment highlights the potential for rapid and impactful orthodontic interventions to dramatically enhance both the look and functionality of a patient’s teeth, reinforcing the notion that significant dental improvements can be achieved in a relatively short period.

Invisalign / Clear Braces

Invisalign, also known as clear braces, is an innovative orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using a series of custom-made, virtually invisible aligners. Unlike traditional metal braces, these clear aligners are removable and made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material, offering a discreet way to correct misalignments, gaps, and overcrowded teeth. Patients receive a new set of aligners every few weeks, gradually shifting their teeth into the desired position. Invisalign is highly popular for its aesthetic appeal and the flexibility it allows in daily life, including the ability to eat without restrictions and maintain oral hygiene more easily. This method is suitable for both adults and teenagers seeking an effective, less noticeable orthodontic solution.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure aimed at lightening teeth and removing stains and discolouration. This treatment can significantly enhance the brightness of your smile, contributing to a youthful and vibrant appearance. There are various methods available, including in-office professional treatments that use high-concentration bleaching agents for immediate results, and at-home kits prescribed by dentists for more gradual improvement. Teeth whitening is effective for most types of discolouration, offering a simple and non-invasive way to boost confidence through a brighter smile. However, it’s important to consult with a dental professional to determine the most suitable option based on individual dental health and whitening goals.

Dental Crown

A dental crown is a custom-fitted restoration that completely covers or “caps” a damaged tooth or dental implant. Crowns are used to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure when fillings or other restorative procedures are not sufficient. They can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination, offering both durability and a natural appearance. Crowns are ideal for restoring teeth that are fractured, severely decayed, have undergone root canal treatment, or in cases where there’s a need for cosmetic enhancement. The process typically involves two visits to the dentist: one for preparing the tooth and taking impressions, and another for fitting the crown. Dental crowns not only improve the function and aesthetics of your smile but also can last many years with proper care.
