Throughout the last 28 years, Dr. Tieken has been dedicated to giving exceptional members of the community the smile they deserve.

The Bay Area Makeover was created in 2003 when Dr. Tieken discovered a new way to use his expertise to give back to the community that has been so good to him. He wanted to give deserving individuals the smile and confidence they had only dreamt of and immediately went to work organizing the Bay Area Makeover. Since then, Dr. Tieken has completed five makeovers and given over $320,000 worth of dental and medical services.

Jimmy Miller is the most recent winner of the Bay Area Makeover. Jimmy was introduced to Dr. Tieken in early 2018 when Dr. Tieken began his search for the next BAM winner. Jimmy’s two children, along with his girlfriend, each submitted a letter to Dr. Tieken explaining why they felt Jimmy was the most deserving candidate.

After months of anticipation, Jimmy finally received the news that he had been chosen as the winner of the Bay Area Makeover. “There was just something about Jimmy. Once I got to know him, I just knew he was so deserving of this,” Dr. Tieken said.

In the following weeks Dr. Tieken gathered a team of incredible doctors who were more than willing to help him along this journey, Periodontist Dr. Jared Abramian and Endodontist Dr. Christopher Coleman.

Over a year and dozens of visits later, Jimmy’s smile makeover was complete.

Dr. Tieken wanted a special way to celebrate and reveal Jimmy’s new smile to his friends and family so at the end of January he hosted a smile makeover reveal party at Preamble Lounge and Craft House for Jimmy, his friends and family, and members of the community. The night was full of love, laughter and lots of bright smiles.

“This whole experience has completely changed my life,” Jimmy said. “Not being able to show my smile was one problem on its own, but the constant pain was horrible to go through, too. Dr. Tieken and this team of doctors changed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined, and I finally have the confidence to smile again.”

Teeth in One Day – A Successful Reality

February 1st, 2019

You can now replace your missing or badly damaged teeth or dentures with a beautiful, natural, and permanent smile in just 1 day while asleep!   

If you enjoy a juicy bite of a crisp, sweet apple, consider yourself blessed. For thousands of people, this is not a pleasant experience because of the poor condition of their teeth, or because they are denture wearers. Eating should be one of life’s greatest pleasures, yet for many Americans this simply is not the case. They are in pain or unable to enjoy the simple delights most of us take for granted—enjoy chewing our food. I still remember my father’s noticeable struggle at the dinner table. I witnessed first hand how inability to eat a juicy piece of steak or salad affected the quality of his life. My father felt ashamed of his false teeth and suffered at the dinner table night after night. I remember having nightmares about losing my teeth and I began to really pay attention to people’s teeth. While that experience sparked my lifelong passion for finding the perfect replacement for natural teeth, there was no real solution for another three decades, until dental implants entered the arena.

Dental implants proved to be completely functional, comfortable, and beautiful as well. It is now realistically possible make dentures history! We live in awesome times. We now have the ability to replace natural teeth in just one day while in deep sleep. Thanks to experiments done by Swedish orthopedist, Dr. Ingvar Branemark, we learned that the hard tissue does not reject foreign objects so long as they are inserted under certain conditions and principles. In fact, our body completely integrates the new body part in a few short weeks and with proper maintenance will preserve it for life.

The evolution that Dr. Branemark began over 50 years ago by inserting a metal rod into a rabbit’s femur has blossomed into replacing vital body parts such as teeth, knee and hip in just one day.  This knowledge completely transformed orthopedics and dentistry and is changing lives dramatically, everyday.  Regrettably, my father passed away before I had the skills to help him, but in pursuing that lofty goal, I have been able to treat tens of thousands of Americans suffering with removable teeth and missing teeth!
