Case Study: Veneers upper jaw and bone correction
The patient was grinding their teeth regularly and additionally exhibited too much of the gums when smiling (gummy smile). Hence, the teeth appeared very small resulting in a unaesthetic smile.
Prof Dr Christian Mehl
After obtaining the diagnostic records (panoramic X-ray, digital photographs, 3-D scan) we restored occlusal surface of the posterior teeth with flowable composite and removed the excess bone and gum for the upper front teeth with a small operation (apical repositioned flap). After a healing period of two months the upper front teeth from the canine were prepared and six veneers placed.
