Patient Suffered From:
Misaligned, crooked teeth associated with gum disease, and chipped, broken teeth. Patient did not want braces.
Goal of Treatment:
Periodontal Deep Cleaning, Invisalign treatment for crooked teeth and an option given to repair a chipped and broken tooth with a Porcelain Crown, Porcelain Veneer or white (tooth colored) filling.
Patient is a 36 year old medical professional. In 2009, she came to U Shine Dental wanting to explore dental treatment options for a nicer, brighter smile. She was not comfortable smiling because of dark stains and crooked teeth, and did not want traditional metal braces.
The wireless braces with Invisalign treatment took one year to achieve proper teeth alignment and regular periodontal deep cleanings were keeping her gums healthy. Additionally, she had a broken tooth which was repaired with a tooth colored filling with a recommendation for a porcelain crown to be placed in the future.
Since 2009, she has been very happy with her new smile, now smiles with confidence and sees us religiously every 6 months for periodontal cleaning and a regular dental check up.
