Case Study – What to do with worn teeth
Firstly it was established what the patient hoped to achieve, that he did not wish to have any extractions and most importantly his budget. A number of options were presented and it was finally agreed to root treat and rebuild the worn upper front and back teeth and to accept the lower teeth as they were in order to remain on budget.
This was done with composite filling material with the help of the lab who made up a mould of the new tooth size and shape.
Once completed then impressions were taken to have new upper and lower chrome dentures made to fill the remaining spaces and provide stable back teeth to allow the patient to function more efficiently.
