Case Study 1 - Pam
Overview: Pam disliked the prominence of her front two teeth and how worn the edges of her teeth had become. She had previously had bonding (white fillings) placed on her teeth to improve the looks of them but she felt that this did not accomplish her goals and the edges of the front two teeth kept chipping off. The final result she wanted was a broader, balanced smile with whiter teeth.
With her goals in mind, we designed a smile that would accomplish what she wanted and give her a stable bite. In her case, she needed to move the lower teeth to prevent chipping of the her new upper teeth. We accomplished this with Invisalign prior to reshaping the upper teeth for her new smile. After the Invisalign, we tried in the design which gave her a chance to preview her new smile before we made any changes. With the new design approved, we reshaped the teeth to give her the smile she wanted. Pam wore temporaries that reflected the new shape and length of her teeth while the master ceramist built the final restorations. The new crowns/veneers were tried in and approved prior to cementing. The final result was exactly what Pam had hoped for and we were so happy she trusted our practice to do this for her!
