CASE OF THE MONTH JUNE 2019

It's early in June but we could not wait to post our case of the month. As you may be aware, we believe in the least invasive techniques to create stunning smiles which look natural and healthy. After all, it is pretty obvious when a smile is false- just look at various celebrities on TV (no names mentioned!)

Our patient requested a drastic improvement on his smile using lingual braces as he did not want the brace to be visible for work reasons. The treatment was a great success and the improvement as profound. We discussed the need for teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding after treatment to enhance symmetry. Often, teeth are asymmetrical due to tooth wear, grinding at night, genetic reasons or past treatments.

Pre treatment:

 

Quite severe crowding with the left lateral incisor sticking out and general asymmetry


Beautifully straight teeth, treated with a full arch lingual brace. Followed by teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding.


Stage 1

After a thorough assessment, Dr Nissit Patel treated the upper arch using a full arch lingual brace. This is the only brace that is fitted behind the teeth hence it is not visible. This type of orthodontic treatment is more complex than conventional treatment and requires a high level of skill and technical expertise. There are very few dentists that offer lingual braces in London, we are proud to be one of them.

The overall treatment time frame was 8 months.

Stage 2 

After teeth straightening, teeth whitening was carries out using the Philips ZOOM LED system. This is an in surgery treatment which takes about 90 minutes using 6% hydroden peroxide as the bleaching agent which is activated by the LED light. We always advise using a take home kit afterwards to reach the maximum whiteness.

Stage 3

Cosmetic bonding was carried out on the lateral teeth to enhance the overall aesthetics and symmetry. This technique is another highly skilled one and one that our dentists in Fulham are accomplished at. We have treated hundreds of cases with stunning results.

Stage 4

Retention! After treatment, it is essential to hold the teeth in position. A fixed wire and removable retainer are required for life.

MI dentistry 

MI means minimally invasive. This entire process required NO drilling of natural tooth, NO needles or injections, NO pain and is far more affordable than so called 'cosmetic' treatments such as porcelain veneers.
