Kate has a drop dead gorgeous smile.
“Kate first visited me in 2012 when we noted overlapping front teeth and worn edges. It’s not normal to have so much wear at such a young age. I looked at Kate’s bite and found that her tooth position was creating wear when she used her teeth for normal activities like chewing. We both wanted a very conservative result, trying to minimise the amount of tooth we removed. Invisalign was going to be the best way to reposition her teeth, align the teeth at gum line and then bond thin veneers to restore the length and shape.” Dr Andrea Shepperson
- Digital Smile Design (DSD) to determine ideal tooth position.
- Invisalign orthodontics to reposition upper and lower teeth.
- DSD to revise final shapes.
- Preparation of teeth and construction of thin ceramic veneers, on 4 teeth, to complete her case.
These images show the extent of crowding and tooth wear. Crowded bottom teeth are contributing to some of the bite issues during chewing. The dental arch gets narrow in the mid-section, creating shadows in the side of the smile.
