Liam’s Bruxism Treatment in Wavell Heights
Liam came to us with concerns of how short his teeth were. With his history for severe teeth grinding at night, they became worn down which affected his confidence to smile.
During his appointment, we took a 3D scan of his teeth to analyse his case accurately and to plan his cosmetic smile makeover. Using the 3D Scan, we created a mock-up of his veneers to visualise the results in advance. Since he has yellow teeth, we did teeth whitening so the other teeth will match the shade of his dental veneers.
Weeks after his teeth whitening procedure, we then started preparing his teeth for dental veneers. Since it will take around two weeks for our ceramist to individually hand craft the dental porcelain veneers, we have placed temporary veneers on his teeth. Upon receiving his porcelain veneers, we cemented it to his teeth and provided him with a night guard to protect his teeth from his constant grinding and from wearing down again.
For his smile makeover, we performed 3D Scan, Teeth Whitening, Dental Veneers, and Night Guard for Bruxism over approximately 6 weeks with 2 weeks of interval regular visits.
What Were The Issues With His Existing Teeth
- Yellow Teeth
- Heavy Teeth Grinding
- Front Teeth Worn Down
What We Did for His Smile Makeover
- 3D Scan for mock-up
- Teeth Whitening
- Porcelain Veneers
- Fitted Night Guard for Bruxism
The after-teeth-whitening shade of his natural teeth matched the colour of his new Porcelain Dental Veneers. And since he already lost a lot of teeth structure due to the heavy teeth grinding, a less invasive preparation of Dental Veneers masked the appearance of his short teeth while we preserved his remaining teeth structures. His front teeth looked bigger and longer now with the new Dental Veneers – which is proportionate to his facial structure. We also provided him with a Night Guard to prevent further wearing down of his remaining teeth and Dental Veneers.
After Liam’s smile makeover, he can’t stop smiling with his amazing new smile. For him, it’s not just his teeth that were improved, but his overall self-esteem as well. When we saw him for his follow-up appointment, he happily shared with us that he feels so much more confident and is smiling widely again.
