Smile make over within one week for a physician from Hawaii

Smile makeover

A doctor from Hawaii visited Philadelphia during Christmas break. However, her old ill-fitting front bridge broke and fell off.  

The patient emailed Prosthodontist Qing her pictures ( Figure 1 and 2) asking due to her limited time in Philly if it is even possible to restore her smile within one week? Figure 3 is her picture 4 days later.

Dr. Qing's specialty in Prosthodontics, the mature workflow, and equipment have made it possible, leaving extra 3 days for post-operation follow-up and adjustment if needed. Today is the Patient's returning flight to Hawaii. We wish her to have a wonderful and safe trip back.
