This patient and his wife were unhappy with his smile. He thought there was no hope, but she thought we could help. For many years, he had tolerated uncomfortable partial dentures, a bad bite, worn and missing teeth, and discolored restorations.


Periodontal surgery was necessary to improve the health of his gums and to make the gum line more even. A sinus lift was also necessary to increase the strength and thickness of supporting bone for implant placement. We then replaced his missing teeth with nine dental implants. Lastly, individual crowns restored all remaining teeth and implants. Our patient and his wife were beyond thrilled with the end result.
