I have a 72 years old male patient came in for consultation. His main concern..”spaces in front of the two front teeth”.
Him: Can you do something?
Me: Yes, I can.. but your teeth will look a bit wider and longer .
Him: would it look nice? will it improve my appearance?
Me: (looking at the other adjacent teeth, considering his oral hygiene) If only to close the space at the middle, maybe 20%! but lets start first in cleaning your teeth so I can get the real shade of the teeth. He agreed and I proceeded to remove the old composite filling and restored the teeth with direct composite veneer.(E.max direct).
His eyes beamed at the prospect of having 20% improvement. However, when I handed him the mirror, he was so pleased to look at his front teeth and proceeded to do the rest of his teeth. the rest is history, 🙂 It feels good to see him very happy.
Ladies, there’s always room for smile improvement ,no matter how old and whether you are man or woman 🙂
beauty shines beyond fifty!
