Fad wanted a whiter and straighter smile. However, she could not see herself wearing braces to achieve her dream smile. She refused to wear the brackets for a few years.
She had generalized yellowish teeth and mild crowding of upper front teeth. The left lateral incisor appeared tucked in. That single tooth had bothered her the most. Hence, she was shy to smile with her teeth visible.
I stressed her that the most ideal treatment plan to straighten her front teeth will be orthodontic treatment.
She understood my explanation and already had set her expectation lower than to have a ‘perfectly- straight-Hollywood-kind-of-smile’ even before she came.
Her teeth can look straighter by means of altering the shape and size of the teeth. This concept is called optic illusion in art.
I could alter the shape of the tucked in lateral incisor and jutting out canine using a simple composite restoration.
In her case I did 2 composite veneers to correct both shape of lateral incisors and a simple composite filling to reduce the jutting out appearance of upper left canine.
Prior to the correction of her teeth, she had teeth whitening first. Just in a single visit, she managed to have her dream smile!
“My smile is very pretty, I am a bit conscious to smile as people might notice I did something to my teeth,” she said.
“Don’t be shy. You should flaunt your beautiful smile confidently now,” I said.
“Sure Doctor! I will rate 10/10 for your service as an overall. Thanks so much,” she said.
Before I bid her farewell, I reminded her to come for 6 months scaling to keep her oral health in check.
Her brand-new smile complements her gorgeous face. She was a very pretty young lady!
I’m glad that I could make a difference in her life.
