Treatment: Dental Implant and Crown Right Lateral Incisor, Crown Left Lateral Incisor. Zoom Bleaching
In this patient’s before photo you see her in a temporary crown on her implant that replaces her right lateral incisor, and with a temporary crown on her left lateral incisor. She had been born without the right lateral, and the left was misshapen, kind of a tapered peg shape. A dental implant has been placed, she bleached and we are able to carry on with her permanent crowns. Making a single crown surrounded by natural teeth invisible is the most difficult that we have to do in cosmetic dentistry. Then if you add in the fact that it is an implant and not a crown on a natural tooth, and that she has a specific unique mottled look to her teeth, it makes it almost impossible. But I did say almost. If you are fortunate enough to work with passionate ceramists, who have the same credentials as I, then things such as this can be incredibly rewarding. We gave her front tooth back! How fun is that! She was also one of my cases for my Fellowship with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Thanks for letting us take care of you! — Dr. W.
