Stained Teeth with Recession

When numerous back teeth are missing, extensive pressure is put on the remaining teeth. This patient did not want to lose any more teeth and realized his situation was a combination of smoking, poor tissue health, clenching and no support in the back of his mouth. We restored his esthetics and function with crowns and used a lower partial to distribute stress and chewing over a broader area.
