This patient from London came to see us for a routine examination. The images below show photos of the worn teeth and photos of composite resin bonding carried out.
She was aware of grinding her teeth and of her worn teeth and was conscious of the way her teeth were changing shape and wearing down as a result of this.
She wanted to improve the appearance of her smile and protect the worn teeth. We suggested the use of composite resin bonding
Firstly she used a home tooth whitening kit to lighten her teeth to a colour she was happy with.
We then restored the lower teeth with directly placed composite resin. This required no adjustment of the natural tooth, only building back the lost tooth structure.
At a separate visit we restored the edges and front surfaces of the upper six front teeth.
The patient was really pleased with her new smile and was happy that her teeth were protected from the ongoing wear. She was very happy that we had been able to do this with no damage to her natural tooth structure.
