21 Dec Nicola’s Fixed Braces Journey – Lichfield Dentist Case Study
Nicola’s problem was clear- her crooked teeth weren’t allowing her to easily clean in between her teeth and the appearance of her smile was being affected by the uneven levels of her smile.
The aim of treatment was to improve the appearance of Nicola’s smile and to align her teeth so that she could clean efficiently between her teeth to make sure her gums remained healthy. The only way we could achieve these goals was to use a fixed brace to reposition the teeth and then modern bonding techniques to restore the worn edges of the teeth.
Now usually, at some point of fixed brace treatment, the smile ends up looking worse for a short period of time. In Nicola’s case the teeth pretty much looked bad for all the treatment; this was due to the worn teeth and our need to make sure the teeth were in the correct position for the final result to be obtained. Thankfully for us Nicola was an absolute Star throughout treatment and never lost faith in our ability to deliver on our promises.
Nicola’s case not only shows us what we can achieve with Fixed braces, but also how important it is to ensure that the teeth are lined up to allow us to restore the shape of the tooth.
Nicola was so pleased with the result that she wrote the following on Facebook:
