Designing and Reconstructing a Beautiful Smile
Veneers can make a smile beautiful again, but they are not suitable for every single case. If teeth and/or gums are in the wrong position to begin with, orthodontic or periodontic treatment may be a better solution. Veneers are the ideal solution when teeth need to be elongated, or there are small close spaces that need to be closed.
BR did not like the difference in height of the front teeth, and did not like the small spaces between his teeth.
Using ‘digital dentistry’, his smile was designed to determine:
- The ideal location of the edges of his front teeth with relation to his lower lip; and
- The ideal dimensions of each tooth in relation to each other.
The above photo shows a ‘mock-up’ of where the teeth should be built-up, created from the ‘digital smile design’.
As you can see, the edges of his front teeth are more harmonious with the lower lip, and the dimensions of the teeth relative to each other is much more aesthetic.
