A patient had short yellowish teeth that had many discoloured fillings, and too much gum display when she smiled. Also, the upper teeth were positioned forward giving her a “buck-tooth appearance” and had gaps. In addition, she was missing two lower back teeth that often showed when she smiled. The biggest problem of all was that for years she was self-conscious when she smiled and would often try to hide her teeth when she smiled or laughed. Her case was complex and required many aspects of cosmetic and implant dentistry, including gum surgery, tooth whitening, dental implants, porcelain veneers and crowns. Later, bleaching of the lower teeth and replacing the yellow molar crown completed this make-over nicely. She was very pleased with her new-found smile.
