Dr. Rubinoff’s OMG Cases
1. My teeth are soooo crowded. I hate my smile
A young female with extreme crowding in the upper front of her mouth. She is missing her upper canines and now requires dental implants for these teeth. What can be done to restore her upper front teeth?
2. My front teeth look short and fat
A 60 year old male has short and wide crowns in the upper front of his mouth. Following crown lengthening with periodontal surgery, ideal tooth shape is now possible and allows for the fabrication of 6 ceramic veneers.
3. All she wants for Christmas is her two front teeth
Our patient is a young female who lost her two front teeth and the surrounding bone. The fabri- cation of two new implant retained crowns with teeth and gums that look normal in size and shape is both an art and a science.
4. Trauma injury in the front of the mouth.
Her front teeth are collapsed in and her teeth are chipped in both the upper and lower front of the mouth. The upper right lateral incisor has fractured and now requires a dental implant. She is gorgeous but for her front teeth. She will have veneers on all upper and lower teeth as well as the implant crown on the upper right lateral incisor.
5. Good bye Gummy, Hello Gorgeous!
Remember the high smile on Farrah Fawcett? That was a gummy smile but her teeth were long enough to make the teeth look great. This beautiful lady needs some help. Raising up her gums and reshaping her teeth did the trick.
6. Congenital (born without) missing lateral incisors.
So much work to straighten the collapsed teeth with braces and then, placement of dental implants jn the lateral incisor region. Colour match, tooth shape and high aesthetic concerns are re- quired to help this young lady.
7. You could drive a shovel between my two front teeth
That big space you see between the front teeth is called a “diastema”. If the space were smaller, a cou- ple of larger veneers might work well BUT this lady had very loose front teeth that will require extraction. Now the magic starts with reshaping the other front teeth and modifying the gums in the central incisor region to allow for new teeth that look natural and pleasing in her mouth.
8. I may be old and worn down but I want to chew apples and smile again like a model
The ravages of age are often accompanied by loss of many teeth, worn down teeth and shrinking gums. Watch this lovely lady regain her youth , her vitality and her smile.
9. It’s all about the base ..... No trouble
ave you ever looked in the mirror and something about the gums and the shape of you front teeth drives you nuts. Our patient cannot stand how the gums have receded in the upper right front of the mouth. Observe the subtle but important changes that follow the placement of implants in the upper right front of the mouth.
