Tom came to our office wanting to change his smile. He was finally at a point in his life where he was able to do this for himself. As a child, up until he was 18 years old, he had multiple surgeries for a cleft palate. Due to this, he was missing some of his front teeth and it created some challenges for him. Dr. Stephens was able to give him the smile he had always wanted. We leveled the gum line position to create balance and symmetry and bleached his lower teeth so we could brighten up his smile. By placing crowns and bridges on 12 of his upper teeth, we were able create an illusion that he wasn’t missing any teeth. We gave him the smile he always imagined.
