Before and afters: Damon braces
This patient had severe upper crowding. He was particularly embarrassed about the instanding upper lateral incisors and the prominent canines. He was treated with self-ligating fixed appliances to align his teeth without any permanent tooth extractions.
This patient was deeply unhappy with the “sticky out fang teeth.” He also had a bilateral crossbite (narrow upper arch). He had a quad helix, headgear and self-ligating fixed braces to achieve this lovely result and no teeth were extracted.
Karen was unhappy with her divergent upper incisors and her ageing dentition. She preferred not to have a lower brace, so an upper clear brace was used and the upper central teeth were enhanced with tooth coloured composite. She also had a new lower crown.
Clarity Advanced braces were used to close the large spaces which the patient found embarrassing.
He was understandably very unhappy with the gaps and often hid his smile as he was very self-conscious. Upper and lower ceramic braces were used to close the gaps and align the teeth. Permanent retainers were fitted and the importance of retention stressed. He is totally delighted and can’t stop smiling. Treatment duration was 18 months.
