Another unique problem solution, because this was done without preparing the teeth at all, and two thin chips of porcelain were made by the lab to fit the gap, and then were bonded to place.
As you can see in the before photos, someone had started this case, who really didn’t have an eye for esthetics, whereas our result is nothing short of amazing. Here is what our patient wrote:
In November 2010, I decided that I wanted to have the space between my teeth closed. I did and on-line search for cosmetic dentistry and found Dr. Steve Markus at the Centre for Dentistry. I found his website to be very informative and comprehensive. I decided that Dr. Markus had the expertise to carry out what I thought to be an impossible task.
I scheduled the consult and was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the office on the day of my appointment. I found the staff to be very warm and friendly. The office looked more like a home than a stuffy hole-in-the-wall. Dr. Markus was warm, friendly, and honest. When he examined my mouth, he told me what I already knew. The severe anxiety that I had experienced at other dental offices and kept me from returning for follow-up care left my teeth in poor condition. Dr. Markus was not judgmental and put my anxieties to rest.
Dr. Markus established trust at “Hello”. He and his Dental Assistant, Laura Bevington, made sure that I was comfortable and pain free at every visit. Their care and concern did not end when I left the office. After every procedure, Dr. Markus and Laura took the time to contact me to see how I was doing, and to make sure that I was pain free.
As patient advocates, Dr. Markus and Laura far exceeded my expectations. They took the time to talk to me about the procedures I would have, answered any questions I had, and made sure that I never had to wait on the day of my appointments. Dr. Markus and Laura also spent a great deal of time communicating with the technicians that would be making my crowns, bridge, and porcelain inlays. I’d never received as much care, attention, and compassion as I received from Dr. Markus, Laura, and the rest of the staff at the Centre for Dentistry.
I will end by saying that Dr. Markus and his staff did an excellent job with all the work that was done to my mouth and the care I received. What I thought was an impossible task became a priority for Dr. Markus. He was able to restore my smile, and in the process became a friend.
