Here is a small selection of work carried out by Dr. Neel Sanghavi.
The end result you see is arrived at with the patient’s input and often some compromises will have been made to avoid surgery, braces, cutting down a tooth too much, shorten treatment time, reduce financial cost etc.
Patient did not like: Small front teeth, chipped worn teeth and bleeding gums
Solution: Gum disease treatment, No-prep porcelain veneers and composite bonding
Patient did not like: Upper Rough and stained teeth, Crooked and overlapped teeth.
Solution: Smile makeover with no prep and minimal prep veneers (Lumineers)
What I would do differently now… Gum level on upper right crown was left low as the patient did not want the surgery. Nowadays with the Waterlase this surgery is minimally invasive with no cuts or stitches and we probably would not have had to compromise on the gum! We also probably would have used Fastbraces for 3 months to get the teeth straighter and not prepare any of the teeth very much.
Patient did not like: The patient was not happy with the appearance of her veneers. They had chipped over time and picked up staining and were much bulkier than her natural teeth. She also wanted to whiten her natural teeth as she wasn’t happy with the overall shade..
Solution: The patient had a course of teeth whitening. She then had composite veneers placed to match the new whiter shade of her teeth that are also much closer to the shape of her natural teeth.
