Fixing Gummy Smile

This patient was unhappy with her smile. She did not like the space between her front teeth, her “gummy” smile and the old dark crown on her front tooth. The dark crown was old porcelain fused to the metal crown which does not have the translucency of an all-ceramic crown.

Treatment consisted of a gum lift using a laser, followed by five porcelain veneers and replacing the old, discolored crown with a more natural Emax ceramic crown. The result shows a more pleasing and bright smile.
