Missing tooth and peg lateral case.

Kristi is a patient that came to our office with a couple of problems.

First off, one of her four front teeth was missing.
The tooth never came in.

Secondly, the matching tooth on the other side did not form completely.
It is what we call a peg lateral.

We did a couple of things for Kristi.
We placed an implant in the spot where the one tooth was missing.
After that healed we placed crowns on both the implant and the small tooth.

Here are the before and after pictures and x-rays.
