It is imperative to stress that orthodontic levelling & alignment is the best treatment for the patient. This decision as not taken lightly as the patient had an important career to pursue.
We discussed all possible options, as well as no treatment;
A. Ideal treatment using orthodontics & restorative correction of worn teeth and further smile enhancement
B. Composite veneers
C. Traditional veneers-porcelain combined with lower orthodontic treatment.
Following considerable discussion of all the options, we decided to proceed with composite veneers on upper 10 teeth.
This minimally invasive concept as per composite mock up will achieve the following:
- Immediate cosmetic improvement
- No intervention with existing veneers
- Minimal post-op discomfort.
- Easy to make modifications
- Options for future orthodontictreatment
As always, following cosmetic dental procedures a habituation period of few days is anticipated. This will allow us to improve colour and harmonise the smile to create a naturally pleasing appearance. Any sensitivity, which is rare, is usually transient.
