Abstract

One of the greatest assets a person can have is a smile that shows beautiful, natural teeth. The restoration of a smile is one of the most appreciated and gratifying services a dentist can render. The positive psychologic effects of improving a patient's smile often contribute to an improved self image and enhanced self esteem. Periodontal attachment loss in the maxillary anterior region can often lead to esthetic and functional clinical problems. Lifelong motivation is essential to the supportive therapy for these patients, and the maintenance of good esthetics, combined with conducive to maintaining long term dental and professional health. This paper aims to demonstrate an innovative treatment option for dealing with aesthetic challenges posed by a patient.
