Many times, your smile is the first thing people notice about you. Whether personally or professionally, a great smile improves your self-confidence and creates an image of youth, health, and vitality.
We love to make our patients smile. Below is a series of before and after photos highlighting a few of the smiles we’ve improved.
This patient was unhappy with the appearance of the front teeth because they were different colours, sizes, and shapes. She was ready for change. We started by removing and replacing the old discoloured fillings then shaping the teeth to be fitted for crowns. Porcelain crowns were then placed on tooth numbers 14, 13, 12, 11, 24; and a bridge on tooth numbers 21, 22, and 23.
This patient was concerned about the appearance of the receding gums, the looseness of the front tooth, and the length of the front tooth in comparison to the neighbouring teeth. The cause of the recession and looseness was determined to be the result of a "bad bite", meaning the teeth on the top and bottom did not fit together in harmony. When teeth do not bite together favourably it can cause gum recession, looseness and even cracking/breaking. The recession and looseness of the 21 and 22 could not be reversed so removal was required. The remaining front teeth were then prepared for a porcelain bridge with pink porcelain added along the gum line to camouflage the areas of recession.
