This patient was a very sweet lady, her main concern was the space between her two front teeth. I could see some other opportunities for improving the appearance here as well. First, the space is a "V" shape because her teeth are also angled away from one another. The other issue is that the edges are very jagged. Correcting these problems with composite resin bonding was the immediate choice for me.
This is a relatively inexpensive, quick and painless procedure that can have a huge impact. What struck me about this patient is that she had trouble smiling in the pre-operative picture because she never does it! She habituated a non-smiling posture after years of being self-conscious about the "space" issue.
After 20 minutes you can see a drastic improvement in her smile. The three problems: the space, the incorrect position and the jagged incisal edges are corrected. This patient was ecstatic by the change and had a great big smile on her face when she left the office."
