Diagnostic Wax Up Proposed by Dentist

Diagnostic Wax Up Proposed by Dentist Issue being substantial tooth structural removal proposed – posing extreme high risks on teeth such as pulpal nerve death and compromised longevity.

Realistic Diagnostic Wax Outlined by Dr Janice Kan

Highlights the extent of tooth malalignment and allows for conservative removal of tooth structure for a safe and aesthetically / cosmetically pleasing result.
Patient: 68 year old, Female
Concerns:

 

 

  • Wants improved smile
  • Crooked and discoloured teeth.
  • Wants whiter and straighter teeth.
  • Seeking second opinion on previous clinical advice to have orthognathic (jaw) surgery and orthodontic (braces) treatment – declined by patient due to risk, time and costs.
Diagnosis:

 

  • Teeth malalignment and discolouration.
  • Moderate shortened dental arch – reduced number of teeth for satisfactory masticatory function (eating and chewing) due to multiple fractured and upper and lower missing back teeth.
Management:

 

 

  • Tooth whitening.
  • Smile makeover design with diagnostic mock up.
  • Conservative composite veneers / fillings, ceramic veneers, ceramic onlays and dental crown work.
  • Dental implant crown replacement of upper and lower missing back teeth.
