Brighter Smile 1

A more symmetrical and brighter smile is created by a combination of treatments. Old crowns on the two central incisors were replaced and six porcelain veneers were used to lengthen and brighten the lateral incisors, canines and first premolars. It all began with an analysis of the changes both tooth shape and colour that would provide a more pleasing smile. This was done at the consultation appointment before commencing treatment, which allowed for better communication between both doctor and patient so that realistic goals could be achieved.

Dark Teeth

Dark roots are sometimes visible around old crowns. Composite filling material was used to try and improve the colour of the adjacent tooth with limited success. Restoring the two central incisors with well-made crowns improved the appearance allowing the teeth to blend well in the smile. Careful control of the soft tissues ensured the dark roots were covered.

Tooth Whitening

The upper right central incisor was discoloured after trauma. Internal bleaching brightened the tooth. This involved several short visits over a few weeks.

Worn Teeth

There are many reasons for tooth-wear and different patterns exist depending on the cause and the position the mouth. Mechanical tooth wear can result from grinding of teeth or from abrasion with another object such as aggressive tooth brushing. Chemical tooth wear is due to acids eroding the teeth. A correct diagnosis is required to in order to provide the most appropriate treatment. This can vary from simple bonding or advice, to complex full mouth rehabilitation.
