Concerns:
  • Seeking cosmetic dentist for smile makeover – missing front tooth and spaces between upper front teeth.

  • Mild to moderate periodontitis / periodontal disease (gum and bone infection) with signs of occlusal trauma (positional  changes and tooth movement from bite force).
Management:
  • Conservative ceramic veneers on upper front central and lateral incisor teeth
  • Dental implant crown replacement of missing upper right lateral incisor tooth.
  • Adjustment and stabilisation of occlusion (bite) or teeth positions via the nightly use of upper full arch splint.
  • Ongoing periodontal treatment (gum and bone) and maintenance with a specialist periodontist as required.
