Beautiful Porcelain Crowns and Veneers: Case 7

This patient had neglected his dental health for a long time. He wanted a non-removable restoration of his dentition but was not willing to go through implant therapy which would have been the best long term solution for his problem. I was not happy about making him a long span fixed bridge because of the strong likelihood of failure over the long term. This is a guy who is in his twenties so he has many years ahead of him and will likely have to replace this bridge two or three times over an average lifetime. But he wanted a restoration that looked and felt good, he wanted it as quickly as possible and without surgery. I made him an eight tooth long porcelain fused to metal (for strength) fixed bridge. It renewed his self-esteem and we’re both very happy with the result. I still wish he chose to have implants but as the saying goes, “the customer is king”.

REASON FOR UNDERGOING TREATMENT

I need to be able to go out in public. My mouth is a mess.
