Alabama Dentist - Orthodontics, Porcelain Crowns, Bridge and Dental Implants
Ms. Harding had an upper anterior bridge from tooth #8 - #10 that had been bothering her for quite some time. She also had an upper partial that she wanted to replace with implants. Upon consultation, Dr. Beasley suggested that Ms. Harding go through orthodontic treatment before starting any restorative treatment. She also stated that she would like to do porcelain crowns/veneers on her lowers to have them match her upper arch.
After orthodontic treatment with Dr. Lindsay Limbaugh in Huntsville, Alabama, Ms. Harding had porcelain crowns placed on teeth #6 and #12-14 and a bridge placed from tooth #7-11. She was then referred to Dr. Paul Weeks for implant placement in the area of teeth #2-5 and #19-21 with guided bone regeneration in the areas of teeth #2-5 and #21.
While the implant sites were healing, we restored Ms. Harding’s lower arch with porcelain crowns and veneers on teeth #21-29. The last phase of Ms. Harding’s treatment consisted of restoring her implants with porcelain fused to metal crowns.
Mr. Steve Barksdale of Barksdale Laboratory, Athens, Alabama, created all of Ms. Harding’s crowns and veneers. Smile design and cosmetic dentistry provided by Dr. R. Brad Beasley.
