This patient came to us with persistent headaches. He said that he grinds and clenches his teeth a lot and wondered if that was part of the problem.
Well, his teeth had definitely shortened over the years. And that had also shortened his bite, which could lead to headaches. So we discussed options and determined that his best bet was porcelain crowns. These would not only be protective but also make his teeth longer again, which would open his bite.
Our patient came every week for a month to complete the entire makeover. And when it was finished, he was happy with the natural-looking results.
