About this case


Dirk is in his early 50's.  After his teeth were extracted and a prosthesis provided by his dentist, he went into a deep depression. Before this event, Dirk had a rich professional life, but now, he lost the joy in life, his ambitions gone. The reason: his face sunk away, his youh and freshness were completely gone. He came to see Dr Defrancq as a kind of last resort. I proposed the following treatment plan:

  • Bone grafting to build up his midface (due to teeth loss and bone atrophy).
  • Implants in upper and lower jaw.
  • Immediate loading in chrome-cobalt resin. Therefore in the upper jaw Dr Defrancq proposed some regular implants and two zygoma implants, enabling the immediate loading.
  • Lipofilling to further enhance the facial fullness and facial features.

Soon after the surgeries, Dirk was totally transformed as a personallity: happy, back to business and enjoying life. A complete and unseen transformation. He is a remarkable and most grateful patient. In the near future his temporary immediate loading will be changed into zirconium porcelain.DECEMBER 2015:  Voilà. The Porcelain is finished. Dirk was dreaming, not of a white Christmas, but of white teeth. So we made them white....american style!!
