Christine, better known to us now as Chris, was no stranger to the dentist or dental chair. She felt as if every time she had a dental appointment they were fixing something in her mouth. Because of this, her teeth were a multitude of shades. She wanted a uniform smile, one that wouldn’t look like piecework. Her front teeth had gotten extremely dark, her teeth had become uneven, and the metal was showing around some of her crowns. Dr. Michaelson recommended looking at her smile comprehensively and suggested placing a combination of all porcelain crowns and veneers on her upper teeth, putting an all porcelain veneer on the lower tooth that was out of alignment, and replacing her old restorations on her lower teeth with all porcelain ones. Only doing her upper smile would result in the same disappointment. She would have a beautiful smile up top but a mismatched smile on the bottom. Her upper teeth were done first, followed by her lower teeth. While Chris had a few long appointments, she felt it was worth it. For the first time in her life, she had a smile that was all one shade and blended together!
