Our patient never knew that the spaces between his front teeth could be closed. He had no idea of his possibilities. He had always wanted to have a smile without spaces because he felt that he was being judged by his smile. He had accepted the way his teeth looked, but he dreamt of a smile without spaces. We invested the time to create a wax mock up of his smile, and then we were able to guide the experienced dental laboratory, in designing a digital smile design in which the final smile had no gaps. Our patient now has a smile that is symmetrical and balanced-- it is a smile that he is proud of, and his family says that he now smiles all the time.
