This patient came to us from another country, here on a school visa, with badly broken-down and patched together front teeth. Back in her home country, she didn’t have access to exceptional dental care like we have here in the United States. Because of her front teeth, she didn’t smile much and wanted to be able to smile again without being embarrassed.
Due to extensive decay on the 2 front teeth, we performed root canals, then did 8 porcelain crowns across the top front teeth. This process took 3 weeks start to finish and the patient was amazed at the final result. We consulted with our dental lab for the best outcome on shape, size, and color. Due to the customization from the dental lab, we were also able to give added length to the patient’s teeth, as her natural teeth were very short, giving her an unnatural smile line.
Full coverage porcelain crowns were the only way to fix the broken-down teeth as there was not enough natural tooth structure left to sustain white composite fillings. Here at Laurence Palmer DDS, we Change Lives One Smile at A Time and utilize the talented professionals at our dental lab in cases involving porcelain crowns.
