Situation

Bibby is Dr. Rota’s wife of 34 years. She is also a dental phobic and has avoided any major dental work throughout the years. Wear and tear had taken its toll, and Bibby noticed that she was biting her cheeks more often due to the vertical closure as her teeth wore down. Finally, she agreed to let Dr. Rota restore her smile.

Solution

By crowning or veneering all of her teeth, we were able to increase the vertical dimension between her nose and chin, thus softening her facial lines and giving her a facelift without plastic surgery. Her treatment was completed in just two visits utilizing IV sedation to eliminate her fears. You can tell by her smile she’s pleased.
