Seth’s Story

Absolutely! Let's take another swing at Seth's smile transformation story, this time focusing on the restoration of his implant with a porcelain crown. Here goes:

Prepare to be captivated by the awe-inspiring transformation of Seth's smile – a journey that not only restored his implant with a stunning porcelain crown but also revealed a breathtaking new grin that he can't help but flash at every opportunity!

When Seth first visited our office, he was in the midst of a smile makeover journey. He had previously undergone an implant procedure to replace one of his upper front teeth, but he still wasn't completely satisfied with his overall smile. Seth yearned for something more, and he came to us to explore the possibilities of taking his smile to new heights.

One of the distinctive characteristics of Seth's smile was the presence of a peg lateral tooth – a common occurrence with upper lateral incisors. In Seth's case, this tooth was so petite that it was affectionately dubbed a "peg lateral." Rather than allowing this diminutive tooth to detract from his smile, we recognized it as an opportunity to create something truly remarkable.

As we meticulously assessed Seth's situation, we also observed that his gums could benefit from a minor adjustment. In essence, Seth required a lift to reveal more of his teeth and establish a more balanced and visually appealing smile. This gum lift would enable us to design a smile with the ideal proportions of tooth and gum, enhancing the overall harmony of his facial features.

The entire process of transforming Seth's smile spanned approximately 10 months from beginning to end. The final outcome was nothing short of extraordinary – a stunning smile that included nine flawless porcelain veneers and one masterfully crafted implant porcelain crown. When Seth gazed into the mirror and witnessed his new smile for the first time, his face radiated with unbridled joy and confidence. His smile was so contagious that it lit up the entire room!
