Over time ceramic crowns and caps can become mismatched and cavities can develop around the edges of dental work, leading to aesthetic and oral health problems. Similarly, gum diseases can lead to receding gums leaving the roots of the teeth and the metal edges of the old prostheses exposed.

All of these can affect the general appearance of your smile, which in many cases can affect self-esteem and lead to feeling insecure when interacting with others.

How to improve the smile?

If you’re wondering how to get a better smile (or the perfect smile for that matter!), we’re going to tell you a number of techniques that will help you get it. One of the most well-known treatments is clearly aesthetic orthodontics, the familiar braces that let your teeth be repositioned, both for children and adults.

However, there are also dental veneer treatments that let us design a prettier smile and above all, a natural one. This is what we’re going to see in the case below, where the veneers offer impeccable results.

Clinical Case

We are meeting with a 47 year-old patient that has come to our centre to improve the appearance of a now unmatched prosthetic ceramic “cap” that underwent premature ageing due to a gum disease. In the check-up we found a tooth with serious cavities below the prosthetic crown, which meant removing the tool and then putting in a dental implant and a temporary fixed tooth all over the course of the same day.

After a number of months touching up the temporary tooth and achieving a look the patient was happy with, the temporary tooth was replaced by a prosthetic ceramic crown. In this case, to improve the smile and bring the overall look of the teeth into harmony, ceramic aesthetic veneers were put on the neighbouring teeth.

As you can see in the image, the final result is great, and more importantly highly satisfying for the patient.

If you also want to get your smile back, and you think we can help, make a first appointment and we’ll give you the various options for your situation without any obligations.
