Full mouth reconstruction involves repairing orthodontic problems
Ms.G came to our office when she had almost completed her braces. She found us through the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) 's site and chose Dr. Shimizu because he is an accredited member of the AACD.
She didn't show enough teeth when she smiled because her functional bite was off. Therefore, Dr.Shimizu discussed with the orthodontist about her teeth, where he wanted all the teeth in the perfect position for function and aesthetic reasons. He also consulted with the oral surgeon about the optimal dental implant placement.
After getting the braces and implants done, Dr. Shimizu discussed using photography and digital simulations with the patient and lab technician. When she was satisfied with her look, the wax-up/mock-up of the final smile was done and transferred into her mouth. Before beginning the final preparations, Dr. Shimizu gave her a temporary mock-up to test the function and cosmetic outcome. She returned to the office periodically to adjust and modify the cosmetic results with the mock-up until she loved the new smile.
When everything was to the patient's satisfaction, Dr. Shimizu started prepping the teeth portion by portion to keep the same occlusion and aesthetic results. She had a full mouth reconstruction with veneers, orthodontics, and implants.
Dr. Shimizu always takes time to achieve aesthetic and functional results, and the patient was pleased with the results.
