Case #4 – Full Mouth Reconstruction with Crowns and Partial Denture
“Grandma Ward” came to see us all the way from Georgia. Her granddaughter, Sandy, was our hygienist at the time. Oftentimes due to severe wear, missing, and drifted teeth, a combination of treatments is necessary to restore a smile. Grandma Ward presented with all the above. Her bite had shifted significantly. Her teeth were severely worn. Not only was this an aesthetic challenge, it was a functional challenge. Grandma Ward told us she was getting a new smile instead of a new car.
Our goal was a combination of cosmetic enhancement and improving her ability to chew comfortably. This was an advanced case requiring the application of multiple disciplines and a team approach. A periodontist (gum specialist) was needed to create an ideal result.
This is a dramatic case that truly demonstrates the impact of a smile makeover. One of Grandma Ward’s friends asked if she had a facelift! The pictures say it all! And, by the way… She got the new car anyway!
