This patient has a very deep bite. His teeth had become very thin and pieces were chipping off. His teeth were also full of old discolored fillings that were breaking. He was in real danger of losing one or more of his four front teeth.
The old broken fillings were removed. Four porcelain crowns were placed to both protect his teeth and greatly improve his smile. His bite was then adjusted to reduce the contact of his lower teeth on to his upper teeth.
