At age 6 on Christmas Day, I was riding my new bicycle, hit a rock and wrecked. The pavement knocked my front left tooth up into my gum and it was chipped. After months and many root canals the tooth’s nerve was dead and it had to be pulled. The dentist put a fake tooth on a retainer that I could take in and out.
At sixteen, he made me a permanent bridge by drilling down the two teeth next to it. This would have lasted a lifetime, however the tooth next to the bridge were must smaller and did not match.
At fifty-seven, I had a consult with Dr. Elliott Johnston and he explained what he would do to make them all match. Now my 6 front teeth are equally sized, pretty and white. People tell me now how I look so good! It’s the smile 🙂
