Smile Makeover Case of The Day

This patient wanted a younger youthful smile for his 60th birthday. So I made him 6 beautiful porcelain crowns for his upper front teeth. This cell-phone video shows me placing the crowns. He was very happy :-)))

I took a 3D digital computer scan of his teeth and gums, and we computer designed his smile beautiful new teeth and 3D printed out his 6 teeth crowns.

This patient wanted me to give him a beautiful white smile. I placed porcelain crowns on his upper front teeth 3 years ago and he returned now to do the lower teeth. Here are the pictures:

Crown case of the day

This patient was hit in the mouth with a tennis racquet and broke his front tooth. The tooth also required a root canal, and periodontal crown lengthening surgery. I placed a temporary crown on the tooth for 2 months while the gums healed and did a computerized custom shade match to obtain a perfect color match.

Crown case of the day

For this patient today, I removed 2 porcelain fused to metal crowns that she recently had done in El Salvador, cleaned up the decay underneath,  polished her other teeth, and  placed 2 beautiful new zirconia crowns. She was so happy and has a beautiful smile for Christmas :-)))
