Cathy knew she had a complicated problem but most of all she knew she didn’t want “fake-looking” teeth.
We discovered Cathy’s natural teeth had been broken by excessive clenching and grinding, and the DCME team needed to solve the problem before creating a new smile. With careful planning, including implants, crowns and rebuilding, we developed Cathy’s 12-month dental journey to create her beautiful smile.
Cathy was involved every step of the way. Together she and the staff agreed on the best shape, colour and contour to achieve the best possible outcome. Success included a ‘behind-the-scenes’ part of the smile where a plan was formulated to build strong foundations for the bite and a plan to protect against future grinding.
Sessions were set up to rebuild in stages, with Cathy leaving Dental Care Mt Eliza with aesthetic temporaries so her smile was never compromised.
Cathy now loves to smile, is much more confident, is now able to eat comfortably, sleep soundly without neck pain and wakes without headaches for the first time in years. Cathy’s friends say she looks 12 years younger, and there is no doubt — the photos say it all.
