Gaps and spacing
Teeth shapes and uneven smile line
Joseph had grown up with a tooth that never erupted, which had left a gap in his smile. He also had some spacing and uneven teeth shapes prevalent in his top teeth.
Still wanting to preserve and emphasize Joseph’s natural attributes and original teeth shapes, Dr Dee had placed x10 Picasso Porcelain Units and bridge to complete Joseph’s smile.
Joseph's primary concern was one missing tooth leading to gaps in his smile.
With proper planning and extensive preliminary preparation, Joseph’s smile makeover was completed in only 3 appointments.
1st visit: Prep for porcelain veneers
2nd visit: Try in and cement porcelain veneers
3rd visit: Review, clean, removal of excess glue, impressions and lower whitening to match up the shade.
He then comes back every 3-6 months for his review and normal hygiene appointments.
