Problem

This lady is 44 years old, she is a pharmacist from Alberta, Canada. She came to Meza dental looking for a “beautiful and even smile”.

This patient’s smile required a couple of tweaks to get to where they wanted with their teeth.

Approach

After a full set of x-rays, a full set of photos, and an extended clinical exam we realised that to be more predictable we had to start with a mock-up.

In her case, she had a right canine in the lateral incisor position with some Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns and on the other side, she has one extra bicuspid, discoloration, spaces between teeth, chips, and worn teeth.

We decided to make a combination of full porcelain crowns and full porcelain veneers. A total of 16 restorations.

Some of the teeth required a crown built over a tooth, because they were already worn out.

The next day we started the preparation already knowing how the case will look at the end and what technical aspects the lab guys needed in the clinician’s preparations to accomplish the desired result.

We took impressions and placed temporary teeth seeing already a wonderful change. Once we confirmed the new proportions of the teeth with the patient we discussed color, shape and send all the information to the lab, along with a new full set of pictures so they can understand the case outcome better and start the artistic work.

A few days later, we did the esthetic try to check the, almost finished, final restorations’ fitting and esthetics.

As always, we needed to do tests to make sure our prototype would fit the patient’s expectations, as well as ours.

End 

The next day, we inserted the restorations, having a beautiful result accomplishing all the patient’s desires.

We finished with the final x-rays, photos, and bite adjustments.

She is now happily smiling and very proud of her smile.
