David is a young up and coming actor who until recently had always been behind the camera. He wanted to be in front of the camera acting but thought that his smile was not going to make that happen. This lack of confidence about his teeth was really affecting his life. He realized how important it is to have a nice bright white smile because the camera lens picks up on all the good, the bad and even the ugly. He decided to come and talk to us about a way to improve his smile.
David was congenitally missing his two upper lateral teeth – the teeth on each side of the two front teeth. He previously had 2 Maryland type bridges filling in those spaces. At his consultation appointment the options of implants versus bridges were discussed. Because of time restrictions and his desire to get in front of the camera as soon as possible it was decided that new bridges were the best option for him. It was also decided that David would bleach his teeth prior to treatment to give him the white smile he wanted.
After he bleached his teeth to the whiteness he wanted, we placed two, three unit zirconia all ceramic bridges. David is now in front of the camera smiling away.
“No longer am I hiding behind the camera thanks to your amazing work! I feel so at home now smiling away in front of the camera. Thank you Dr. Shannon.” – David
