Captain Sandeep, a handsome young army man visited us in 2018 for a smile designing treatment. His main concern then was the brownish discolouration on his front tooth. When discussed, we mentioned it to him that if we had to treat only that tooth, we would have to match it to the other teeth, which were also discoloured due to the effect of fluorosis. This kind of discoloration due to fluorosis is a regional issue in some parts of India, warranting such smile designing procedures.
After a couple of further appointments discussing his desires from a smile designing treatment in India and life ahead, we decided on few other things that needed correction:
- Generalised discolouration due to fluorosis
- Misalignment/nonalignment of his teeth
- Gummy smile
- He also felt that his smile looked too aggressive and preferred something more pleasing to compliment his being a gentleman officer in the Indian Armed Forces.
We got working by first giving him a test drive of how his smile would approximately look after the smile designing process. Once approved the first step was to correct the gum positions, which was done using our Waterlase laser machine. The final smile designing was achieved with 8 emax crowns.
