Another smile transformed.

This lady had be seeing me for several years. A couple of years before I first saw her she had a suffered a fall and had damaged her upper front teeth. She was due to get married earlier this year and wanted to transform her smile so she could have the confidence to smile in her wedding photographs.

Here is a picture of her before we started doing any dental work.

After an extensive consultation we decided on the following treatment options. First, my patient felt her teeth were rather dark, we therefore decided to carry out some tooth whitening of both her upper and lower jaws. Second, we both felt that the appearance of her two upper central incisors could be improved. They had been damaged in a fall and had been rebuilt using white filling material. However, over time, these had discoloured and no longer looked brilliant. We decided that we would rebuild these teeth using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin facings of porcelain that are adhesively bonded to a patient's tooth to improve its appearance or to protect a damaged tooth surface.

Our patient had two further visits and two porcelain veneers were placed on her upper central incisors.

Here is a picture of our patient's finished smile.

Our patient was delighted with her new smile, and she looked great for all the photographs taken at her recent wedding.
