Zakia was never happy with her smile. When we evaluated Zakia’s smile we realized that her situation required a few steps to arrive at the final result. Zakia has 2 congenitally missing teeth which had left large gaps between her teeth. Eventually her teeth started to drift out of position and rotate. Now her teeth are all over the place. Ideally we would want to correct the position of the teeth till they are in better position but, Zakia was not interested in a long treatment and wanted to know her options. The other problem that we encountered with Zakia’s smile was that her bite had started to collapse as a result of the missing teeth and few that had to be removed in the past. Zakia’s gum line also had to be adjusted to create uniformity and symmetry from one side to the next. Zakia’s smile makeover consisted of correcting the gum line with laser, placing a combination of porcelain laminates, porcelain caps and porcelain bidges. This is a more complicated smile makeover. We had to reposition the chewing surfaces of all the upper teeth, correct the gum levels and place a combination of different porcelain restorations to create Zakia’s smile.
