Before and After


Closing Gaps

Dental Office in Fountain Valley

A 32-year-old female patient entered the dental office with a set of concerns about her upper front teeth. She had been grappling with spacing issues in her upper anterior teeth and was troubled by the yellowish tint of her teeth, which marred her smile's overall aesthetic. Her desire for a more beautiful and aligned smile led to the formulation of a comprehensive treatment plan.

To address the patient's concerns and deliver the desired smile transformation, the treatment plan was divided into several stages. The initial step focused on using Invisalign, a clear aligner therapy, to correct the spacing issues in the upper front teeth. The goal was to close the gaps between the teeth and realign them for a more harmonious and even appearance.

The clear aligner therapy involved a total of 16 sets of clear aligners, custom-designed to gradually shift the position of the upper front teeth. This treatment not only closed the gaps but also ensured that the teeth were properly aligned. The patient's desire for a more uniform smile was well on its way to being achieved.

Additionally, the patient had concerns about the yellowish color of her teeth. However, it was important to ensure that the new smile line created through the aligner therapy was aesthetically pleasing and that the teeth were not only aligned but also at an ideal shade of white. To achieve this, a bleaching treatment was included in the treatment plan, allowing the patient to attain the desired level of whiteness.

Moreover, the patient's smile line was further improved by addressing her deep bite, as the current curve of Spee was not in the correct position. Correcting the deep bite played a pivotal role in enhancing her overall smile aesthetics and functionality.

The meticulous execution of the treatment plan ensured that the patient's smile was transformed to match her aesthetic aspirations. The aligners successfully corrected the spacing issues, and the bleaching treatment brought her teeth to the desired shade of white. The result was not only a more beautiful smile but also improved oral function.

In conclusion, the case of this 32-year-old female patient highlights the transformative power of modern dentistry, especially in addressing spacing issues and smile aesthetics. By combining clear aligner therapy with Invisalign, a bleaching treatment, and the correction of a deep bite, the patient's smile was significantly improved in terms of both appearance and functionality. This case underscores the importance of personalized treatment plans and modern dental solutions in delivering life-changing results.
