These next three cases highlight the sort of treatment that StoneRock Dental Care is most passionate about. What we see here is how much we can do enhance a smile and protect damaged teeth with out removing any sound tooth tissue.
The reason we are so passionate about it is that we know just how important it is to minimise the impact of dentistry on the teeth that we are treating. Enamel is like gold dust and the older we get the more precious it becomes. If we can preserve as much sound enamel and dentine as possible then we leave the teeth in a stable condition that leaves options open for later on in life. If we do heavy impact dentistry such as full coverage crowns at an early age then we have removed so much sound tooth tissue (up to 60% of the original tooth structure in the case of an anterior tooth) then we have very few restorative options left when the crown needs replacing.
This case shows the replacement of a missing tooth using a direct fibre reinforced bridge that was fabricated in the mouth as a one visit procedure. The bridge did not require the removal of any sound tooth tissue so could be done completely painlessly.
This case shows a smile rejuvenation with simple whitening and direct bonding of composite veneers fabricated in the mouth. This case required no drilling or local anaesthetic.
This remarkable case involved whitening, an indirect fibre reinforced bridge to replace a hopelessly damaged lateral incisor and implant retained crowns to replace some of the missing teeth. The case took months to complete but has left the patient with all of the sound tooth tissue that they came in with so reducing their risks of complications and leaving them with all available restorative options for the future.
