Smile Makeover: Case 8 This patient was unhappy with the space between his two front teeth and the overall yellowish appearance. He needed a flashier, more confident smile for his professional working environment. Dr. Abide achieved this look in two steps. First, by re-contouring the shape of his gums on the upper arch, he was able to give the patient a more full smile by making the teeth appear longer. Secondly, he placed 2 full coverage porcelain crowns and 4 porcelain veneers on the upper arch. The end result was a perfect smile for a young professional.
