MATCHING TO NATURAL POSITION OF OTHER TEETH
A 30-year-old man who leads a very active lifestyle with mountain biking, wild water canoeing, winter sports and anything adventurous. Unfortunately, he had an accident causing him to lose his front tooth. We removed the tooth, set it aside and did a bone graft procedure to build up the bone for future implant placement. We then bonded this tooth back in and glued it to the adjacent teeth at the end of the procedure. So he walked out with the same tooth we extracted. After a healing period of about 3 months, we placed the implant and three months later we placed a crown. Since he wanted an appearance that was natural, not “perfect” crown at the same slant his tooth was before.
