Doctors Comments:


This young man had lost some back teeth over the years. He also grinds his teeth at night during sleep. As a result, of not having back teeth to support his bite, the front teeth were taking the grunt of the load and had severe wear causing his bite to collapse.

Oral Rehabilitation involves the restoration of the teeth to their correct height and to restore the vertical dimension of occlusion (in other words the bite) to where it should be.

We achieved this with porcelain crowns to all the teeth, and bridges where we had to replace missing teeth.

Crowns made from a strong porcelain material restore the shape/colour of the teeth and protect each underlying tooth.
