It was a sunny Monday morning in Castellon, Spain, when 36-year-old Alfredo walked into Dr. Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya’s clinic for his first appointment. Alfredo, a school teacher and art lover, contacted Dr. Rojas-Vizcaya and his team after a restaurant accident where he bit into a piece of bread and suddenly he found himself with a fractured tooth and in pain.
When Dr. Vizcaya examined Alfredo, he discovered a vertical fracture of tooth 46. The treatment plan included extracting the tooth and replacing it with an implant. The challenging part of the treatment was to restore the position of the gingival contour and the inter-proximal papillae, i.e. make the restoration look like a natural tooth.
The restoration is now ready and ready to be delivered to Alfredo.
Was Dr. Vizcaya able to obtain his treatment objective of a natural-looking tooth that delivers function as well as esthetics for the patient? And what does Alfredo and his tooth restoration look like 8 years after treatment?
