There are a number of materials and methods that can be used to suit a patient's requirements when restoring the front teeth. There are also a number of reasons why a patient might request or require their front teeth to be restored, including erosion, chips, twisted teeth, gaps, unaligned teeth and more. When any restoration is performed on a tooth, a portion of the tooth is always required to be removed, or taken back. When restoring front teeth, the portion of tooth that is taken back is minimal. Front teeth are easily restored using composite, but it takes the experienced eye of a Specialist to sculpt, and perfectly polish, a natural and beautiful looking tooth.
This lady approached us with the hope of improving the look of her front teeth. She was concerned with the overall appearance of her smile, and in particular, the gaps between her teeth, their texture and colour. She'd had a composite restoration done elsewhere years prior which she was no longer pleased with, as it had begun to stain, and the texture between her natural tooth and the restoration was becoming visibly apparent. The result of expertly modelled front teeth restorations is shown in her 'after' images, with a clean and natural final polish, and brightened colour.
Presenting to us in regards to improving her smile, this young lady was previously not satisfied with the shape of her front teeth, describing them as narrow and long in appearance. Their gaps and their shade were also of concern. As in Case #1, this restoration was also completed using composite material in-house, finished with a beautiful polish, and whitened using trays and take-home treatments. This patient was very pleased with the final result of her smile!
