Teresa had teeth that failed to come through as a child and the tooth straightening that was available at the time left her with some very significant asymmetry, gaps and tipped teeth. Tooth whitening, porcelain crowns / bridges and veneers were provided.
Simon had a squash accident in his teens fracturing his front teeth. He didn’t like dentists and put up with a less than lovely smile for a long time.
We whitened Simon’s teeth and provided a combination of crowns and veneers on the upper and lower teeth.
Anna’s upper canine teeth did not come through and her retained baby teeth had badly worn.
We whitened Anna’s teeth, removed the two baby teeth and placed high aesthetic porcelain veneers to improve the shape of the small lateral incisors and all ceramic adhesive bridges to fill the spaces.
Charlotte’s teeth were very severely worn due to a combination of her grinding her teeth at night and acidic foods in her diet.
We recontoured Charlotte’s gums with a laser and provided high aesthetic porcelain veneers to lengthen her teeth.
Nick’s teeth were worn due to a combination of grinding and acidic foods in his diet.
Nick just didn’t like his smile that much particularly the fact his front teeth were smaller than the others. We whitened his teeth, provided two high aesthetic ceramic crowns on his two upper front teeth. We re-shaped four upper front teeth canines and lateral incisors with composite filling material to improve the aesthetics and the bite.
This ten-year-old was being bullied at school because his teeth looked “dirty” He had deep internal stains in his two front teeth.
We did some surface treatment and some precise and gentle tooth whitening to get this very satisfying result. The stain is gone without any need to pick up a drill. Bullying stopped, self-confidence returned!
A “mock up” is a way to show you how any proposed cosmetic changes either with cosmetic bonding or porcelain could look in your mouth. It is temporary and totally and quickly reversible. It is the most accurate and useful technique for showing you what could be possible. It is also a very useful tool for communicating with our technicians. If laboratory constructed porcelain work is being considered it is crucial as far as possible you, your dentist, and the technician has the same vision of your new smile. Tooth coloured composite filling material is applied over the existing teeth. It’s an excellent 3-D way to visualise the dramatic changes that aesthetic dentistry can offer.
This is a mock up on the top and bottom 8 teeth. It gives a good idea what porcelain veneers / crowns or build ups in composite could look like.
It is temporary, removable and totally reversible…… Although frequently when we do this patients like it so much they don’t want us to remove it!
To the left we have a closer view of another mock up, showing proposed changes to tooth shape and gum margin.
To the right, we have a mock up giving an idea how a smile would look if the spaces were closed.
Remember .. this is not the finished product! It is just to help you (and us) visualise how changes might look before you decide what you would like to do.
