Misaligned Teeth, Inflamed Tissue, Poorly Shaped Crowns
This patient had flared, fractured, and misaligned teeth. Some of her crowns were over-contoured, and the emergence profile (the angle at which the teeth emerge from the tissue) was out of alignment with her other teeth. The existing, ill-fitting crowns were removed, and the underlying teeth were reshaped and repaired. The gum tissue that was swollen from the prior crowns was removed and re-contoured. The teeth were then restored with porcelain crowns and veneers. This patient now has the healthy gums and smile she has always wanted.
