Smile Makeover Case Study 1 – Using dental implants, crowns and veneers
This lovely lady presented to our practice wanting her missing teeth replaced and appearance of her teeth to improve. Her front teeth were chipped and worn down and the old fillings were discoloured. She also had early decay on the teeth that created unsightly stains. In addition, she showed the greyness of the silver fillings in the back teeth when she smiled broadly.
In cases where major repair of several teeth is needed accurate dental records are essential. In this case, we needed x-ray examination of all teeth, casts of the teeth to see how the bite comes together and thorough clinical examinations. After forming a suitable treatment plan implants were placed to replace the missing teeth and front teeth were treated with porcelain crowns and veneers to strengthen the teeth as well as dramatically improve their appearance.
