Terri’s new tooth was made to measure to fit into a very tight space.
Terri is an artist from Hove. When she came to see us she had a small denture replacing an upper premolar. Terri explained that the tooth was Extraction was 3 or 4 years ago. Her dentist Keith Gray @ Somerhill DP Hove mentioned that he felt there was enough bone for implant placement.
Assessment & treatment
Terri came to see us here at The Implant Centre to replace her upper left second premolar with an implant. Although there did seem to be plenty of bone the slight challenge was that the space has closed over time. Therefore I explained to her that her new tooth would be slightly thinner, and that we may need to adjust the teeth on either side so that your new crown fitted in perfectly. This would not be major exercise but it may involve removal of some enamel on one or both of the adjacent teeth.
Terri now has a natural looking premolar, made here at the implant centre by my colleague Daniel Mace and with the skilled technicians at Ceramic Designs that fits in so nicely with her smile it’s difficult to tell which tooth is artificial which at the end of the day is the ultimate goal.
