Glen's Smile Story

Glen’s Smile Story

Glen’s was missing a front tooth.  Orthodontic treatment had generally straightened his teeth and left room for the dental crown of his missing tooth. However, there was not enough room between the roots of the surrounding teeth to place an implant.  His options were to undergo further orthodontic treatment or place a dental bridge."


Glen elected to go forward with a bridge but also wanted to make the surrounding teeth appear more uniform and esthetically pleasing.  We discussed smile designs and material options with Glen and made a custom wax model of how we wanted everything to look before proceeding.  An all porcelain bridge, porcelain crowns, and porcelain veneers were used to provide Glen with a fantastic new smile.
