This case was initiated due to the patient being unhappy with a previously placed porcelain fused to metal crown on his front tooth. The crown was replaced and 3 veneers were placed on other front teeth in lieu of orthodontics. Orthodontics are always our first choice for our patients, but when the case is right, we can make minor adjustments to the teeth by placing veneers or crowns to help with alignment. This case was delivered in one day.
On older restorations, the cervical margins may start to show due to recession or a metal collar used on PFM crowns. They look unsightly to many people. In this case, we had two discolored front teeth (central incisors) with a cervical margin that did not look natural. Also, there is a black triangle between the teeth that the patient felt looked like a seed that had gotten caught. We fixed all the problems associated with the teeth with a wonderful and natural result. All of our crowns are all ceramic. These teeth were prepped and the crowns made in one appointment with CEREC technology.
Our favorite days are when we get to change someone’s life! We did that this week with the final delivery of this case. This is a before and after of a case that has been planned and treated at our office. The transformation is remarkable, patient is thrilled and we are happy to be apart of it! If you know someone who has dental treatment needs like this, please refer them to our office, we will be sure they are well cared for.

This case is being completed step by step. It included orthodontics by SmilesForever to straighten the patients smaller teeth into a good position for restoring them properly, gingival recontouring so that the gum levels are perfect, whitening to get desired shade, and anterior veneers and crowns to complete the tooth shape desired. Absolutely beautiful, natural and life-changing case. Next step is to complete the posterior teeth (premolars and 1st molars) once the patient is ready.
This case represents repairing fractured front teeth due to occlusal trauma and decay under previous restorations.
