Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
I am missing my two front teeth and I have spaces between the others. So, about 3 years ago my dentist applied a fixed bridge that is connected to four teeth beside the two missing ones.

The bridge rests over my gums, creating a huge overbite and six extremely large front teeth. After all that money spent I still have a hideous smile.

Can I get two normal size implants, four normal size crowns, then add braces to pull the teeth together? ... Visitor from NV

You could probably have a new bridge of 6 teeth that are the correct size done by another dentist.

Implants may be another choice, but may not be necessary if the other 4 teeth are healthy and strong. I would suggest that you look for a dentist who has advanced training in cosmetics.

One place to look is www.lvismile.com. Dentists who are trained at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies will be more likely to achieve the esthetics you want and need.

Do look for somebody who has participated in several courses, not just one or two. Also, ask that the dentist have the case done in wax before he does the work so you can approve the esthetics before it is a done deal.
