- Treatment Overview
Your concern over the appearance of your teeth may be quite general. You may, for example, feel that you don’t like the way your teeth slope or slant. Or perhaps the edges look chipped and grey. Maybe you think the teeth don’t look the same size, or you just don’t like the way your teeth look.
There are so many concerns expressed over the appearance of teeth that it would be impossible to list them all, and certainly no two concerns are ever the same.
Our task is to understand why your teeth and gums look the way they do, and what is conventionally possible to get you the what you would like from your teeth.
Vatche’s training and experience as a specialist prosthodontist gives him all the skills necessary to address your concerns and provide you with the outstanding results that you wish for. Prosthodontics is the only specialist branch of dentistry concerned with the design, manufacture and fitting of partial or complete artificial tooth replacements.
An aesthetic evaluation will require detailed assessment of your teeth, the roots and nerves of the teeth, the gums, your smile, your bite in several different positions, and will likely involve setting up models of your teeth on a mechanical jaw replicator. The models will then be adjusted and teeth manipulated, perhaps using wax or even using computer aided design, before a detailed plan is put together.
We will take time to discuss all your options and the pros and cons of each, and may do this several times before setting out on a path of treatment.
