This patient has slightly crowded teeth with rotated and prominent upper central incisors that also tipped sideways. Invisalign clear aligners were used over a 17 weeks period to align the teeth and provide an even and more harmonious smile.
Teeth can get worn down over time from grinding and erosion, leading to an uneven appearance and thinned out, transparent enamel. Full ceramic crowns were placed on those worn down front teeth to rejuvenate the smile and restore harmony and esthetics. The crowns also prevent further wear of the teeth.
These chipped and discoloured front teeth were restored to a natural and aesthetic state with a combination of ceramic veneers and crowns. Old fillings were replaced first to ensure the teeth were free of decay and gingival health was addressed with improved hygiene.
The two front upper teeth were chipped as a result of an accident. We used composite resin to rebuild the teeth. Careful shade selection and blending technique allowed us to achieve a seamless result where the resin material cannot be distinguished from the natural enamel. We aim to achieve a natural and cosmetically high standard in all our restorative work.
To repair this broken incisor, Dr Yew used direct composite resin bonding to give an instant result which blended in with the natural enamel of the tooth. Composite bonded fillings can be done in one visit and can give an aesthetic and seamless result for front teeth.
This fractured central incisor (front tooth) had been repaired several times with composite resin but kept breaking. It was finally decided to place a ceramic crown over the tooth. A good shade match was achieved and this crown will last much longer than a composite resin buildup. Furthermore, the ceramic will not discolor or dull over time.
Tooth enamel can sometimes be affected with white or brown spots within the tooth substance. These enamel defects arise while the tooth enamel is being formed and are intrinsic to the tooth substance. Cleaning and brushing will not remove these spots. If small, they are not noticeable. But if large enough, the affected tooth can appear to be unclean or decayed.
Removing these defects could involve drilling them out and placing a filling material in the tooth. However, at the Melbourne Smile Clinic, we want to take a conservative approach and treat the tooth enamel with a re-mineralising agent that can ...
Composite resins can be directly bonded to teeth to improve their shape and contour for a more harmonious smile. In this case, the misshapen and chipped front teeth (as circled) have been recontoured by direct composite bonding to give a seamless finish and more harmonious smile.
This patient was unhappy with the appearance of their two upper central incisors. These teeth had some old composite veneers and fillings which were poorly contoured and discoloured. Furthermore, they looked dissimilar from each other. After home-bleaching to whiten the teeth, new ceramic veneers were placed on the teeth to achieve a result our patient was happy with.
Composite resin has been used to modify and improve the shape of the 4 front upper teeth (upper incisors) to close the midline spacing (diastema) and create a more esthetic and harmonious smile.
This damaged canine was successfully restored with a single ceramic veneer.
The natural smile was carefully studied first in order to recreate the natural shade and contour of the natural tooth so that the veneer blends into the rest of the smile.
The two central incisors had old resin fillings that were discoloured and poorly shaped.
These were replaced with ceramic veneers made to match the natural teeth with the right shading and contours to give a natural-looking result.
A traumatic bite led to the front teeth wearing down and chipping. To achieve this result, the bite was first corrected with orthodontic treatment. The teeth were bleached and ceramic veneers were then placed on the 2 central incisors. Resin composite bonding was then done on the other front teeth to cover the worn surfaces and mask the defects.
To replace a missing front tooth, a single implant was first placed in the bone. A porcelain crown was then affixed to the implant in order to achieve a harmonious result.
