Advances in all fields of technology have made it possible for the modern aesthetic dentist to be able to dramatically improve almost any smile imperfection should that be desired.

These are some of the most common cases we encounter:

Smile with Gaps

Individuals with either small or missing teeth may appear to have gaps when they smile. Normally, this is one of the easiest problems to fix. Bonding or Porcelain Veneers, both work equally well.

Small problems in Alignment

Teeth slightly or moderately out of place or imperfectly shaped, can also deteriorate a smile. Bonding can literally work miracles in such cases.

Crowded Teeth

If not enough space is provided, teeth will be forced out of place and alignment. If the patient is not keen on having braces, aesthetic dentistry will resolve the problem with veneers.

Dark looking and Stained Teeth

Time can be hard on the color of our smile. Old fillings tend to shine through and may appear as discolouration as well. In this case Bleaching will lighten up the overall color and porcelain veneers will reinstate the livelihood of your smile. As a rule, your smile should flatter your age and not the opposite. Bonding is not well suited here.

Teeth that don’t complement one’s face

Not everyone is born lucky, and sometimes people may have healthy teeth but not suitable for their face or personality. Good looking guys may appear to have “feminine” teeth and charming girls may show “masculine” teeth when they smile, like the girl below. A mock up provides a good preview of what someone would really look like if the smile was in harmony with the rest of the face.

Short Teeth

Either born with short teeth or have the teeth worn down with age, short teeth can make anyone look older. Reshaping them is not always easy. Bonding can be used in a Try out period, but typically the final result is better suited to Porcelain Veneers and Zirconia Crowns.

Teeth that look older than your age

Looking at the first photo would you think that this smile belongs to a 16 years old? Smiling should make everyone look younger and prettier.

Gummy Smile

If your gums show too much when you smile it may have a negative effect on your appearance. Fixing a gummy smile may be easy (with the use of laser and electro-surgery) or complicated (surgical rearrangement of gum level) depending on the case. The final result can have a spectacular effect on someone’s face, but longer treatment time is needed.

“Negative Smile”

The upper teeth should follow the lower lip line when we smile for an esthetically pleasing result. If they don’t, it looks like the person is not smiling wholeheartedly and it can be very unpleasant. That can be fixed too.

Mock-up (what is it?)

It’s the simplest and most effective way to REALLY see what the patient’s smile will look like when finished. The dentist will use temporary composites to build up any imperfections and then shape the temporary veneers in a way that will complement the patient’s face.
