Smile Enhancement

Black Triangle

Dental Office in Fountain Valley

A 44-year-old female patient had recently completed her clear aligner therapy, which had successfully corrected the alignment of her teeth. However, she began to notice the development of black triangles in the front of her teeth, a concern that became particularly noticeable when she smiled. The black triangles had become apparent after her teeth were repositioned due to the clear aligner therapy.

The black triangles in her smile were a source of frustration and affected the overall aesthetics of her newly aligned teeth. In order to address this issue and achieve the desired smile enhancement, it was necessary to complete a dental procedure on her upper teeth.

The treatment plan for this patient involved a smile enhancement procedure specifically designed to close the black triangles and restore the seamless appearance of her smile. The first step in the process was the creation of a diagnostic wax-up. This allowed the patient to visualize and approve the proposed changes to her upper teeth before proceeding with the final restorations.

Once the patient was satisfied with the appearance of her teeth as demonstrated by the diagnostic wax-up, the final restorations were meticulously crafted by the dental laboratory. These restorations were designed to effectively close the black triangles and provide the desired aesthetics.

Upon completion of the final restorations, they were cemented into place. The result was a successful smile enhancement that not only closed the black triangles but also restored the patient's confidence in her smile.

In conclusion, the case of this 44-year-old female patient highlights the ability of modern dentistry to address post-orthodontic concerns and enhance smile aesthetics. By conducting a smile enhancement procedure with a diagnostic wax-up, the patient achieved the desired result, successfully closing the black triangles in her smile. This case underscores the importance of personalized treatment and a comprehensive approach to meet the unique goals and preferences of each patient.
