A dental abscess brought this patient in. He left, however, with a fantastic dental makeover. Teeth can be worn down over time. And, just like the rest of our bodies, our teeth age as well.

After his root canal, the patient opted for a dental makeover. He had crowns placed on multiple teeth and teeth whitening done. This dental makeover gave him a more youthful appearance while still looking natural.
