Nancy Spear Review
A recent Spear Review case study features Nancy, a 79-year-old woman experiencing malalignment of her two central teeth, one of which was treated with a gold restoration when she was around 19 years old. Nearly 60 years later, the restoration now had caries underneath.

Nancy and her dentist, Frank Spear, decided to keep the malalignment of her teeth after the restoration; to perfectly straighten them would have required an endodontic procedure.

Dr. Spear explains the process of creating her diagnostic wax-up and copyplast in part I, Nancy Case Study: Malalignment, before talking about the phase of communicating with the lab in part II. See how Dr. Spear communicates with the technician in order to get the desired final product in Nancy Case Study: Communicating with the Lab.
