He was also finding it progressively more difficult to eat effectively due to the presence of several loose teeth.
After a lot of discussion regarding his options the possibility of dental implants was not an option due to financial reasons.
We removed all of the loose teeth and then placed cosmetic dental crowns and bridges to improve the appearance of his front teeth. These were shaped to ensure they fitted in perfectly with his smile and the colour selected that he was happy with. Once these were fitted a partial, cosmetic denture was used to replace the missing back teeth.
Once the denture is fitted it completes the final appearance of a new upper arch of teeth. The patient was delighted and could now eat far more effectively and the appearance was a complete makeover of his smile !
It is a great way that different types of dentistry such as crowns, bridges and dentures can be used to provide a solution where implants may not be suitable.
