The after photo is the patient in temporaries. The teeth were extracted and the temporaries were immediately placed the same day. They allow the patient to leave immediately with teeth while healing takes place for the final restorations. Fixed hybrids replace all of the teeth in one or both arches. They are not removable but screwed into place so only the dentist can remove them.
Anterior crowns can be done for aesthetics, function, or both. Due to wear seen in the before picture these crowns were done to improve function.
All upper, lower, or both arches of teeth are extracted and dentures placed the same day. These allow the patient to leave with teeth the same day! They serve as a band-aid while the patient heals.
