All his life this patient had never seen a dentist ever since he was born. The years of neglect on his teeth wore them down till they were fairly short, brown with discolouration and spotting, along with a generally weakened structure. He wanted to do something to help make himself smile with confidence.
An 8 month treatment was performed, wherein over the course of that time a few treatments and check ups were done. The initial surgery of the crown lengthening was performed, exposing more of the teeth’s structure that was hidden under the gums. After a 3 month healing period, the next treatment was the application of the crowns which were designed accordingly. Afterwards follow up appointments
