Restorative dentistry before and after

Mac came to our Columbia, SC dental office by referral for management of extensive teeth grinding and tooth enamel erosion. Upon evaluation, we placed Mac in a Kois deprogrammer to relax his muscles and help find a position to rebuild his mouth. Using his diagnostic models, we were able to mock up a treatment design, prepare his teeth, modify and test the treatment design in his mouth. The final temporary position and shape were then duplicated to a final restoration.
