Cosmetic Dentistry – Lisa Luna
“This patient presented looking to improve the appearance of her upper teeth. She did not like the flatness of her teeth, the fact that the teeth were inclined inwards and the length of her teeth.
Many options were available to her including bonding and orthodontics(Braces), the patient did not want to go through braces so minimally invasive veneers were discussed. These veneers are done beginning with the end in mind so that minimal amount of tooth structure is removed.
As well as the veneers we needed to do a minor gum lift to improve the proportion of her teeth.”
To give the patient a predictable result we make impressions or scans of her mouth and build the teeth in wax, This wax model is used to build cosmetic prototypes which the patient can see so that the end result is not a surprise.
Here what you see is the wax build up where we work on the shape, and length of the teeth and then convert that into prototypes directly in the patient’s mouth . You can see from the original teeth to the anticipated position of the final teeth that we don’t have to reduce the tooth and are minimally invasive.
These are the cosmetic prototypes to give the patient an idea of the smile.
These are the final porcelain veneers, which are color match strong and durable. This improves the patients smile in a very minimally invasive way. Ceramics done by Aram Torosian.
