John R

John was not happy with his smile. His chief complaint was when he smiled, he doesn’t show many teeth and he was embarrassed about it. He displayed very short, small, discolored, and worn down teeth. He had cavities and enamel loss due to grinding of his teeth. He also lost a lot of vertical dimension which caused him to have a “reverse smile” effect. He felt that his smile was uneven and worn-out and he wanted a change.

By using porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns, I was able to open his bite and lengthen his teeth. By opening his bite by 1 mm, I had more space and created a new vertical dimension. I gave him longer teeth with a fuller, whiter, straighter, and gorgeous smile with porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns. Therefore, this improved his function, health, and esthetics. I was able to address his chief complaint and give him an amazing outcome!
