This patient had short yellowish teeth that had many discolored restorations, and too much tissue display when she smiled (gummy smile).
Also, the dental arch was constricted and the front teeth protrusive giving her a "buck-tooth appearance." In addition, she was missing two lower teeth that often showed when she smiled (only one is partially visible in these photos). The biggest problem of all was that for years she was self conscious when she smiled and would often try to hide her teeth when she smiled or laughed.
Her case required many disciplines of cosmetic and implant dentistry. One of the first procedures done was Cosmetic Crown Lengthening. This helped to get rid of the gummy smile and gave her longer teeth.
Her teeth were bleached.
Implants were placed where two teeth were missing on her lower arch.
Later, we fabricated new esthetic and Crowns for her upper teeth and crowns for her new implants.
The arch for was corrected giving her a broader smile by adding width to the side and back teeth and bringing the front teeth back a bit.
All of the advanced cosmetic and dental implant procedures were performed in one office allowing for perfect integration of her restorative plan.
FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS: Additional bleaching and replacing the yellow molar crown would complete this make-over nicely!
