The patient did not like: Small front teeth, chipped teeth, worn teeth and bleeding gums.
Solution: Gum disease treatment, no-prep porcelain veneers and composite bonding.
The 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 the upper right crown was left low as the patient did not want the surgery. Nowadays, with 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 would have used Fastbraces for 3 months to get the teeth straighter and not have to prepare any of the teeth very much.
We think the most important thing when designing a new smile, is to listen to your wants and desires so that we may understand your expectations. This allows us to design a bespoke smile that not only meets your expectations but respects biology and function.
Our approach is driven by the concept of biologically friendly cosmetic dentistry, to deliver a beautiful smile that you can be proud of. By respecting the biology while creating your smile makeover, we end up with a smile that not only suits your face, but also teeth you can eat and talk comfortably with.
From a health perspective, it makes it easier to maintain your new smile so that it is more likely to last longer.
Smile makeovers will often involve multiple disciplines in dentistry, and our approach of respecting biology means we will often employ advanced techniques to avoid having to cut down teeth.
Every smile makeover case is different and our breadth of experience in different dental disciplines means our planning is more thorough, as most of the time, we can manage all the steps of the makeover in-house.
As the only laser dentist in Colchester, we use our advanced technology to deliver better results with much more comfort and quicker healing. Find out more about Waterlase laser technology here.
Coupled with the revolutionary Fastbraces technology, we can create smiles that last and are easier to maintain.
We are proud to have helped very anxious patients and those who do not like the dentist, achieve the smile they always dreamed of.Back to Cosmetic Dentistry
