Case of the month- December 2014

Our case of the month for December involves closing a gap between the front teeth. In the old days of dentistry, this may have involved cutting down teeth for porcelain veneers or having braces for 2 years. However, with modern day cosmetic dentistry and expertise, such cases can be treated in a few months without having to cut teeth. How? Well it is simple. Careful planning and execution. Here is the case:

Gap between the front teeth Mind the gap! A mid line space present.
Gap closed Space closed fully using a cosmetic brace in only a few months

The space was closed using a cosmetic ceramic brace placed on the outside of the teeth. This is a fantastic way of improving the smile quickly and without the visible implications of metal. In only a few months the gap was closed fully and secured with a fixed retainer placed on the inside of the teeth. If you would like to improve your smile in the new year with cosmetic braces, invisible braces or any form of cosmetic dentistry, please contact us. A new smile could be here quicker than you thought! Treatment completed by Dr Nissit Patel. Photographs are the sole property of Dr Nissit Patel. Reproduction is not allowed.
