Conventional Orthodontics and Cosmetic Bonding

Treatment Report

Patient: T.P.

Chief Concern: Crowding on lower teeth, Spacing on upper teeth.

Diagnosis: Constricted lower dental arch resulting severe crowding, Small upper teeth resulting in generalized spacing (tooth size discrepancy).

Treatment: Conventional orthodontics for 12 months along with dental whitening, followed by cosmetic bonding on upper teeth to address leftover spaces due to tooth size discrepancy.


After 12 Months of Orthodontic Treatment 
and Cosmetic Bonding on Upper Front Teeth:

Porcelain veneers would have been ideal in this case, however great results can also be achieved with cosmetic composite bonding.  Further dental bleaching will be carried out at home on the upper teeth for even better final outcome.
