In this case a 20 year old male (RB) attended the practice. His chief complaint was the fractured central incisor. He has had this break for many years, but felt the colour of his teeth and the space between his teeth were also harming his job prospects. His primary motivation was to get an aesthetic improvement.
Vital bleaching & Direct composite restorations upper right and left central incisors and upper left lateral incisor treatment was carried out.
In this case a 70 year old female (Mrs BA) attended the practice for a consultation regarding her upper front crowns.
Following improved cleaning by the patient, Mrs BA returned for the initial preparation, removal and temporization of the crowns. The existing crowns were removed and the preparation was refined with a butt-finish. The gingiva was managed with cord and Expasyl. Temporaries were made with Protemp 4 and cemented with Tempbond NE.
At the final fit appointment, the temporary crowns were removed and the prepared teeth cleaned with pumice and water. Rubber dam was placed and the crowns tried in using NX3 (Nexus) clear try in pastes.
Susan had a previous crown that stuck out like a sore thumb. She was very concerned that the crown would not match her natural teeth either side. After carefully removing the old crown to not damage the teeth underneath and by carefully mapping out the colours we wanted in the new crown, our fabulous lab (CosTech Elite) made this fabulous looking crown which fits perfectly into her smile. Susan was delighted with the results and can now smile with confidence.
When this young patient broke his front tooth we wanted to protect the tooth with a natural easy cosmetic white filling. This repair was hand fabricated in surgery by R Ruwala and placed without the need for injections, anaesthetics or picking up a drill. All done in under an hour!
After years of poor maintenance and neglect Gloria decided it was time change her smile and own healthy functional teeth. So with a little TLC we fixed all the remaining teeth, threw away her uncomfortable denture and replaced it with these top and bottom removable bridges. Now Gloria has a stable comfortable and health mouth which looks great!
Helen had hated the spaces in her teeth for years and dreamed of changing them to look straighter and whiter. We told her it was possible and best of all with absolutely minimal damage to the teeth structure and health. With some teeth whitening and minimal/no preparation veneers we restored Helen's smile to look straight and wonderful - with no unsightly gaps.
Ruth had severe fluorosis of her teeth, which meant white and brown staining. After previous treatment from another dentist her old veneers had cracked and failed, leaving many of the teeth severely stained and damaged underneath. After stabilising her health and some easy Invisalign treatment to straighten her upper and lower teeth, we replaced her old, tired and lifeless veneers with natural, white and youthful porcelain veneers.
Shaun was starting a new job, and was very conscious of the space between his front teeth - he had already had some orthodontics (braces) and it could get him no further. We decided to close the space with adhesive white fillings with no preparation to the teeth. The gaps have closed perfectly and leave a natural aesthetic smile that he was able to walk out with on the day.
