Markus was a classical harpist with a busy concert career and a major recording company(EMI). Driven to excel and powered by the energy of a born achiever, he gave up music and pursued the photography that had become his passion. Soon he was tremendously successful at his new career, drawing the attention of influential editors and art directors. Now his portfolio overflows with the glamour of A-list fashion, advertising, and celebrity images from all over the world. His always-packed schedule is about to become even more crowded as he begins production on a new Bravo reality series, Double Exposure, filming from mid-June through the end of September, 2009. Image-conscious Markus,already attractive knew he would be spending as much time on-camera as behind the lens, and wanted nothing less than the same perfection for himself that he demanded of his work. The only time Markus had tried to improve his smile he had known that neither the dentist nor his blueprint were up to par. So, with no time to spare this time around, a smile makeover was a priority to be started immediately, and completed in as little time as possible. When Markus visited us for a consultation, our plan for him was nothing less than the full reconstruction, up to his standards, that he wanted and deserved. There were two basic problems to solve: Markus's teeth had been ground down over time, and his upper jaw was positioned in a pronounced overbite. The result had caused the lower third of Markus's face to diminish, and his lower jaw to reposition backwards, a condition that can eventually cause painful TMJ issues. With full reconstruction patients, we create veneers and crowns on all teeth to reestablish lost tooth structure and to successfully allow the jaw to position forward to a more ideal esthetic and functional position. Because of the pressing time frame Markus had to meet, we were able to complete his entire treatment in only three-and-a-half weeks. Markus quickly realized he had not only met his own exacting standards, but exceeded them, with an exceptional makeover.
