The patient had been coming to the practice for years. As is often the case, the patient was aware of her esthetic problems, but her understanding of the functional issues and reasons to fix them required education. Her readiness to proceed with care was simply a combination of accepting the problems and understanding them and fitting the treatment into her life. Her esthetic deficits included color, generalized anterior wear with severe wear on some teeth, width/length issues, and position of the incisal edges.
What would be your treatment plan for this patient?
Congratulations to our August winner!
Phil Mason, DMD
