On behalf of the team at Simply Beautiful Smiles, we would like to wish all of our patients and friends a Happy Easter.
This lovely lady in her mid-thirties, has two side front teeth that were mismatched in size and shape. These teeth were malformed during tooth development. The left second front tooth had a shortened gum height and was slightly narrower than the right tooth. These teeth were bonded with a tooth coloured filling as a direct bonded veneer as a medium term measure.
After a couple of years, our patient was ready for a more permanent tooth coloured restoration. A “gum lift” procedure was performed to raise the gum height approximately 1.5 mm, on the patients second left upper front tooth. Both lateral incisors (second front teeth) were then finally restored with 2 porcelain veneers.
March 20th is designated World Oral Health Day. The theme for this year is “Be Proud of Your Mouth”.
This gentleman had severely worn and rotated upper front teeth. The grinding and teeth wear pattern had badly abraded the tooth structure as they were really a long way out of alignment and terribly rotated. The tooth colour was very dark and there were many spaces between teeth.
