Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Issue: Missing teeth, visible roots above front crowns, and upper front teeth closing behind the lower front teeth. He wanted a natural looking smile and to laugh without concern of how his teeth looked.
Solution: The combination of tooth loss and positioning of remaining teeth made it impossible to satisfy his goals and keep the upper teeth at the same time. Braces were placed on the lower teeth to improve positioning, the upper teeth were removed, six implants were placed, and a zirconia hybrid was secured in place on the implants.
Issue: She was bothered with the display of metal and dark roots under old crowns on the lower front teeth. A comprehensive exam also revealed an infected implant, a dysfunctional bite, and several areas of decay along the gum line under old crowns.
Solution: A full mouth restoration after deprogramming and relaxing her muscles to get a level and functionally proper bite. Crown lengthening was performed to even the gum line along her top front teeth, a non –restorable tooth on her lower left was replaced with an implant, and new crowns were placed on all remaining natural teeth and implants on the upper back teeth to repair the cavities, level both arches, and cover the teeth to the gum line so no undesirable color transitions were visible.
Issue: Discolored natural teeth, mismatched materials and colors of previous dental work, uneven lengths of side front teeth, cavities along the gum line of lower teeth.
Solution: A diagnostic plan was developed to completely restore the appearance and function of her teeth. New crowns of a consistent color and proper length were placed on each tooth after the removal of cavities and failing past work.
Issue: Severely compromised remaining natural teeth with multiple areas of decay, failing previous dental work, missing teeth, unaesthetically restored lower front implants, and extremely worn and chipped upper front teeth.
Solution: Through a detailed plan of bone grafting, implant placement, and new crowns on the remaining natural teeth – a dramatic restoration of function and cosmetic appearance was possible.
Issue: Severely discolored teeth, chipped teeth, and bite problems.
Solution: Full mouth restoration with all new crowns to equilibrate a healthy bite and at the same time create the desired cosmetic transformation. Click here to watch Debbie describe the process of gaining a new smile
