Porcelain Crowns (Caps)
This patient presented to us with an uneven smile, with chipped upper anterior teeth, filled with failing composite fillings and crowns. Less obvious is the level of the gum line around these teeth; the gum line is lower on the patient's left than on the right, resulting is more show of the gums (i.e. gummy smile) on the left than on the right.
We corrected these problems by using LASER technology to trim and adjust the level of the gums so that they are level on both sides, and placement of porcelain veneers and all porcelain crowns on all upper anterior teeth for maximum aesthetic results.

With uneven teeth, gaps, and unsightly restorations, this patient was in need of a smile makeover!
Working with his budget, we focused on restoring and improving the appearance of his upper anterior teeth. Through a combination of all porcelain crowns and veneers on the upper right cuspid, through the upper left lateral incisor, we were able to close that unsightly gap in the middle, even out the lengths of the incisors, restore the defective and discolored fillings, and changed the shade of his anterior teeth to actually match each other.
And when we were done, the patient was so happy that he was in tears!
With a combination of aesthetic crowns and composite bonding, we were able to restore the discolored, chipped and unsightly upper anterior teeth and achieve a balanced, cosmetic result.
