Valplast Denture to Replace Old Acrylic Denture – Dr Gwen Gan

Madam Siti had been wearing her acrylic denture since forever. It was the old traditional denture which was thick, big and fake. At first thought, you may think that it must be comfortable for her to not seek for another alternative. In actual fact, she […]

Getting Rid of the Gap – Dr Adyan

Getting Rid of the Gap – Dr Adyan

In a lot of cases I shared, a good number of them are about gaps between upper front teeth.

The upper front teeth are more noticeable by people upon talking and smiling, therefore any defects or abnormality on the upper teeth are easily seen.

However, when we talk, the lower front teeth could also be seen. And in some cases, when we smile, the lower front teeth can be seen. So any gaps in between the lower front teeth would definitely ruin a smile.

This patient of mine was concerned of the gap between her two lower front teeth (the left central incisor and lateral incisor).

The gap is small, however it annoys her, plus it could be seen by other people when she’s talking or smiling.

Notice the gap?

After a full mouth scaling and polishing, we proceeded with two cosmetic fillings to close the gap.

It’s a simple, quick procedure and could be done in one visit; however it makes such a big change to the patient.

She loves that there’s no more gap between those two teeth.

Do you have a gap between your teeth?

Come and see us! We’d be happy to help!

Mrs Z had been wanting to get a new set of dentures for quite sometime. The main reason that stopped her from doing so for many years was because she gave financial priority to her kids’ education more than her dental needs. Recently, she went […]

Composite Veneer to the Rescue – Dr. Adyan

Composite Veneer to the Rescue – Dr. Adyan

One beautiful lady came to the clinic a few days ago.

As soon as I saw her I noted how lovely she looked.

However, as she greeted me with a smile, I knew what wasn’t right with her teeth (well that’s my job, I can’t help but look at people’s teeth hehe>.<)

This lady was met with an unfortunate event of a motor-vehicle accident a long time ago which left her two front teeth fractured, and one of the tooth was non-vital (dead), turning into a very dark-coloured tooth.

This was how her teeth looked like:

Note the fracture on the two front teeth, and one teeth has a very dark shade due to being non-vital (dead)

After doing a thorough examination of her teeth, I informed her of her teeth condition and we sat down together to discuss her treatment options.

Since she had already done root canal treatment for the discoloured tooth, the best and least invasive option to improve the tooth shade is to do internal bleaching followed by fillings. I explained to her the benefits and procedures of doing internal bleaching for the tooth.

However, since she was pressed for time, she needed the two front teeth to be fixed on that same day (internal bleaching would need a few days to get the best result).

In cases like this, composite veneers can be used to mask the tooth shade in just one visit. It is not the best treatment option for this case, however it is suitable for this patient as she preferred a quick fix and is aware of all other treatment options.

We proceeded with doing a composite veneer to mask the discoloured tooth and a filling for the other tooth.

The tricky part was to sufficiently cover the dark tooth while maintaining a natural look and matching it with the adjacent teeth.

Finally, this was the result!

No more dark tooth! No more fractured tooth!
