Teeth in a Day….and for a Lifetime!
Dr. Levine has changed the life of so many patients with the revolutionary All-on-4™ treatment option. Designed to last a lifetime, All-on-4™ is a cost-effective, fixed dental implant solution used to replace failing teeth, missing teeth or dentures. The examples presented in this photo gallery provide a glimpse of several of the complex cases that the Center has handled in recent years.
Case Study #1: Dana
Chief concern: 58-year-old patient presented saying she was very unhappy with her smile.
Treatment received: In one surgical visit, her remaining upper teeth were removed and four implants were placed. A fixed transitional bridge was placed the next day with completion of her case at a later date.
Case Study #2: Joyce H.
Chief Concern: “ I am very unhappy with my smile which I am very self-conscious about along with my difficulty in chewing due to missing and broken down back teeth.”
Treatment received: In one surgical visit, her remaining upper teeth were removed and 5 immediate dental implants placed using the All-on-4 concept. A fixed temporary bridge was inserted within 24 hours by her general dentist. The case went to completion in 3 months as a fixed screw-retained hybrid restoration with first molar occlusion.
Case Study #3: Cathy M.
Chief Concern: 62-year old female presented with chewing concerns due to her poorly fitting lower removable partial denture attached to 3 remaining lower teeth. She is also very unhappy with her smile.

A fixed transitional bridge was inserted the next day with completion of a new full upper denture and fixed hybrid restoration in the lower 3 months later. She is now able to smile and eat everything she desires.
