Aesthetic-Dentistry

A young lady came to our clinic wanted all the gaps between her front teeth to be closed. She stopped her braces treatment about a year ago (due to studying oversea) leaving all her front teeth moving by themselves creating gaps and misalignment..

After examination and assessment of her teeth, we came out with a few treatment plans:

  1. Restart orthodontic treatment /braces again (Require time)
  2. Resin composite veneer or full porcelain veneer on right lateral and central incisor only (Imbalance of the width for the front central incisors)
  3. Crown all the front teeth.

After discussed with her, we finally decided to have herĀ  upper four incisors crowned and resin composite on both of her upper canine to reduce the distance between the canines to accommodate the incisors.
