The Challenge: "D." came to our office with all the teeth on the upper right missing. On the upper left, she had several older crowns which were failing due to decay. "D." desired a solution that did not require her to remove her teeth. She said she did not want a denture or a removable partial denture. She was adamant that she wanted a natural looking result that was "permanent". The Solution: On the upper right, dental implants were utilized to replace the natural tooth roots that were missing. "D's." implants served to support the porcelain crowns I created.
I also replaced the older upper left crowns with crowns made of the more natural looking materials we have available today. In this case, "D's." function and great smile were restored in a way that allows her to say, "It feels like my real teeth have grown back."
