Although she had gone to a dentist for many years, she did not like her smile. And her old restorations were failing due to recurrent decay underneath crowns. Now she came in for broken tooth desperately needing some help.
Not only did she want to save the broken tooth, but also she wanted to improve her smile within her budget. We re-built up the broken tooth and also replaced old defective crowns with Cad-Cam designed porcelain crowns. The result was very pleasing.
Before: This inferior dentistry had hindered her beautiful smile for years. Dull, opaque crowns with visible metal margins needed to be replaced. And the space between teeth needed to be closed as well.
After: A full, natural-looking crowns restored her beautiful smile. The space between teeth was the big challenge and the gum tissue profile was remolded using temporary crowns. Now look at the nice tissue response as well.
Long and pointy teeth were always her dislike about her smile. She was born with congenital peg lateral incisor teeth which created vampire-looking smile.
This was an excellent example of additive dentistry. We did not have to remove teeth structure of those small lateral teeth when two veneers were bonded. Now her smile looked fuller and natural.
Large space between her teeth always made her to hide teeth. Several treatment options were presented and she wanted to close the gap without breaking her bank account.
Composite filling were done on the two front teeth. The challenge was to create a natural shape of the filling so that gum tissue would not get irritated with large over-hang fillings. Now she got a reason to smile more.
Born in foreign country, she was never able to get proper dentistry for teeth. Large over-hanging fillings and uneven restorations deprived her of her youth life and gorgeous smile. She was ready for complete make-over.
Defective restorations and decay were removed and her teeth were re-built from bottom to top. Porcelain crowns were solution for this case. Now fuller and whiter porcelain crowns have brought her beautiful smile back.
This patient did not like her smile showing defective metal margin and asymmetrical axis of teeth and space between upper and lower teeth. She wanted to correct these problems.
A beautiful smile was restored with a combination of bridge and crowns. These crown and bridge were specifically designed using Lumineer which does not require a lot of teeth reduction. She got her smile back and yet she did not have to sacrifice a lot of teeth structure.
