THE BEFINNING OF SMILE MAKEOVER
Step 1- Composite Veneers
The first thing I did for Lily is four composite veneers for her upper front teeth.
Why did I choose to do so?
Lily was going to join a new workplace in two weeks time. I needed to do something that had the most impact of her smile.
Base on the smile analysis, people could hardly notice that she had two missing teeth.
The teeth that would affects her smile and image were the four front teeth and hence must be treated first.
Due to the time constraint, her discolored upper right central incisor that needed root canal treatment and internal bleaching (whitening of single tooth from inside the tooth) would be carried out later on.
Step 2 – Root Canal Treatment and Internal Bleaching
Base on the investigation results, two teeth required root canal treatment.
It took us about 3 weeks to finish the root canal treatment. Lily was very determined and she came in consistently for her treatment.
From there, we sterted internal bleaching for the discolored upper right central incisor.
Step 3 – Dental bridge
Once the necessary treatments to manage infection were carried out, we moved on to restorative phase.
Lily had two missing premolar, one on the left and one on the right.
After discussion about the treatment options available, Lily prefered to restore the missing teeth with dental bridge.
We made two fix-fix porcelain bridge for her, just in time for her engagement ceremony.
That was what I promised her, to have the best smile on her engagement ceremony. =)
My heartiest congratulation to Lily!
