Gayle has been a patient of Dr. Ben for over 9 years. It was discovered during one of her routine cleaning visit that she does not smile with her teeth. When asked, she relayed that she has been self-conscious about her teeth her whole life because of the teeth crowding and overall discoloration.

As Dr. Ben had been working on replacing some of the structural compromised posterior teeth, it was a surprise to find out about Gayle’s real concern.

Addressing Gayle’s concern proves to be challenging as her crowding for the upper front teeth was caused by a missing lateral incisor congenitally. By carefully planning and preparing her existing teeth, we were able to achieve a great outcome without any orthodontic or surgical intervention.

The best part is Gayle cannot stop smiling with her beautiful teeth!
