Upper teeth were reconstructed using composite resin directly on the patient’s natural teeth; lower teeth were treated by rehabilitating prosthetic implants with immediate loading.

The initial situation with worn teeth and improper prostheses, contributing to an extremely disagreeable appearance.
The prosthetic treatment of the maxilla and of the lower rear sectors with zirconia porcelain prostheses has restored a very fine look along with a normal chewing function.
At the beginning of treatment we faced an incongruous metal-porcelain prosthesis, with caries in the underlying teeth, exposed dark metal on the edges and missing lower back teeth.
The smile was not very appealing due to both the inadequate prosthesis and the excessive exposure of the gums.
At the end of the treatment, the upper zirconia-porcelain prosthesis fitted seamlessly, in color and surface characteristics, with the surrounding teeth. Note the disappearance of the metal edges and the harmonious development of the gums.
The smile has regained its most natural look, in terms of its shape and slightly irregular teeth arrangement as well as teeth color – not too white and fake-looking but very natural – and the relationship between the upper lip and the gum.
The patient needed dental work as he could not chew due to the loss of lower back teeth and to a serious malocclusion causing the remaining lower teeth to touch the upper gums.
During our therapy, which included a mandibular advancement surgery and a prosthetic rehabilitation of the mandible and rear maxilla sectors, we created correct spatial relations between the upper and lower jaws which allowed us to build proper prostheses in terms of function and look.
The patient complained about not being able to chew nor to carry on normal relationships due to an inadequate existing prosthesis and malformed set of teeth. The patient rejected the option of rehabilitation using removable dentures.
Following an implant therapy, we were able to rehabilitate the two arches using fixed prostheses that restored normal function and optimal appearance.
The patient requested to replace her removable dentures to improve both her chewing ability and overall appearance of her mouth.
The grafting of a fixed zirconia porcelain prosthesis as well as support implants, allowed re-establishing an optimal chewing functionality and restoring a most pleasing look.
Cosmetic alteration of the upper front teeth.
Restoring a smile’s shape, size and color.
The patient wished to replace the crown on her upper central left incisor and improve the general look of her upper front incisors.
By combining an orthodontic treatment – moving the right lateral incisor – with a prosthetic treatment – placing ceramic veneers on the right central incisor and left lateral incisor, as well as a zirconia porcelain crown on the left central incisor – the patient’s wishes were fully fulfilled.
