When The Doctors first met Tyrica she was hiding her smile with a snap-on appliance. She returns transformed and renewed following her amazing mouth makeover!
Tyrica, who never lost her baby teeth, suffered from cavities, bleeding when she brushed, an abscess, tooth sensitivity, and gum disease. We assembled a dream smile makeover team, including cosmetic dentist Dr. Joseph Goodman, periodontist Dr. Ricardo Raschkovsky, dentist Dr. Mark Torbiner, endodontist Dr. Eddie Harouni, and oral surgeon Alan Kaye. The team addressed her issues in multiple phases including getting rid of her gum disease, a gum lift procedure, a series of root canals, wisdom teeth removal, the placement of a dental implant, and the adding of 28 porcelain crowns.
Before her surgeries, she told us, "I'm so ready to say goodbye to [my teeth] and say hello to my new smile." Upon seeing her smile transformation, she exclaimed," Oh my God! These are amazing!
She joins the panel to show off her beautiful new smile. When she sees herself now, she tells us, "I feel like I'm looking at a completely different person."
In addition to looking great, Tyrica tells us her new smile has helped boost her confidence. "I used to be so scared to even walk into a room with people, and now I walk in like, I'm here, how you doing? Look at me. I smile in my sleep," she tells The Doctors.
The Doctors reveal that Tyrica's extensive smile makeover took 5 months to complete.
