First, Dr. Tekin will evaluate your digital X-rays to evaluate the size and location of the pulp of each tooth to ensure that there’s enough bone between the teeth to support them. Then he will figure the exact enamel alterations that need to be made. As Dr. Tekin sculpts the tooth, imperfections are minimized or eliminated for a beautiful new look!
