Diagnosis: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.
Treatment: 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 recontoured.
The teeth were then restored with porcelain crowns and veneers. This patient now has the healthy gums and smile she has always wanted.
