Smile Makeover 101: Porcelain Crowns and Dental Implants

Smile Makeover 1

Meet Bob, Nice guy who was fed up with his missing teeth and discolored smile. He did his research and came up with Dr. Hank Michael and the team at Sarasota Dentistry. He knew exactly what he wanted… he wanted to replace his missing teeth and have a nice, white smile. No problem!

We started by taking models of his teeth and doing a cosmetic wax-up of the desired smile. Bob was sedated and Dr. Michael prepared his teeth for porcelain crowns and his jaw was prepared for dental implants. His cosmetic wax-up was utilized to transfer the perfect smile to his mouth using a white acrylic temporary material. Bob didn’t remember anything and experienced no pain… and he will tell you so himself! He is a great referrer of patients!!

A couple of weeks later his permanent porcelain crowns were installed in the upper arch and a couple of weeks later the lower arch was completed except for the lower right dental implants. The lower right was completed a couple of months later since those dental implants did not qualify for immediate restorations.
