This friendly 45-year-old farmer from Texas came to us and said “I’m looking for an improvement of my smile” he had orthodontic some time ago and his teeth look aligned, but he was not confident about his smile.
After a full set of x-rays, photos, and a complete clinical exam we explored the ways that we had to improve his smile. We started with a mockup to understand the reach.
We decided to make upper and lower teeth so everything would look uniform, and that way the lower teeth wouldn’t determine the color for our final restorations. We checked the mock-up first and he and his wife were very happy with the proposal.
A day later we started with the preparation of his teeth, we took impressions and gave him temporary teeth based on the smile design that we had previously shown him.
After a week and a half, we have the esthetic try appointment. We checked for fit and aesthetics.
The next day we inserted the teeth, checked the bite, and took the final X-rays and photos. The patient is very happy with the result. We can see the enhancement of the smile and a real harmony between his face and the smile.
Now, he is confident and smiling with a younger look, and his wife loves that he is smiling again.
