53 year old, Male

   
Patient: 53 year old, Male
Concerns:
  • Heavily worn down front teeth resulting in short teeth appearance.
  • Seeking improvement in function (eating and chewing) and aesthetic / cosmetic smile improvement.
Diagnosis:
  • Severe and moderate tooth wear in front and back teeth respectively.
  • Suspected dentoalveolar compensatory eruption – impacting on interarch prosthetic space and gum architecture (gum height and symmetry).
Management:
  • Full mouth prosthodontic rehabilitation at increased occlusal vertical dimension (bite height)
  • Crown lengthening procedure by a specialist periodontist.
  • Composite fillings, strategic ceramic / porcelain veneers, onlays, crowns and cast metal onlays in teeth providing support to occlusion (bite).
  • Construction of upper full arch splint to protect remaining teeth and restorations from further wear and fracture (night use only).
