Clear Brackets For Chipped Front Teeth Case Study

The patient had not visited Appletree before, having seen another Glasgow dentist, but he was keen to take advantage of a free consultation with Dr Murphy and to find out what his treatment options were.

Protruding and Chipped Front Teeth

The patient’s presenting complaint was that his front teeth were sticking out and one of them was chipped.

You can see the problem quite clearly in these initial dental images, first the protrusion from below and then the chipped front tooth.

Clear Brackets Did the Trick

The patient’s entire course of treatment took just short of six months and involved a system similar to Six Month Smiles but using hand-placed clear cosmetic brackets.

On completion of tooth realignment Dr Murphy carried out the composite bonding on the front tooth.

The patient then attended our dental laboratory partner in Glasgow to have his custom retainer made.

This is a key component for the long term success of cosmetic treatments and we work closely with one of the best dental laboratories in Scotland to make sure our need are met.

When the patient came back into the Glasgow practice to review his treatment six months after his first visit, he was extremely happy with the outcome.

In fact he decided to get registered at Appletree Dental Care for all of his regular dental care from now on.

If you have a similar situation or think clear brackets might be the answer to your dental problems please get in touch with us through the website or by phone.

Your initial consultation at Appletree Dental Care is free of charge and places you under no obligation.
