Situation

Bryson delivered our FedEx packages. He walked by our gallery of smiles daily and finally got up enough courage to ask if we could do that for him. Bryson had the unfortunate effect of too much fluoride in the water that had discolored his teeth making them look brown and more susceptible to decay. His teeth were also crooked.

Solution

First, we removed the decay and placed Bryson’s teeth in temporaries that looked like the finals. This allowed his gingivitis to start healing.

Once his tissue healed, we recontoured the gum line to a proper smile-line symmetry with our soft tissue laser. Laser surgery is painless and allows for quick healing and immediate placement of final crowns and veneers. The next time he made a delivery to our office he was all smiles!
