Small upper front teeth with severe spacing. With braces we reduced the size of the spaces. For now temporary fillings were done to achieve typical size of upper front teeth. Plan is for veneers on the four front teeth at a later date.

Dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth.
Estheticly: Dental implants look and feel like your teeth. Dental implants integrate into your bone, and they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that sometimes happens with bridgework or dentures.
Tooth-saving: Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because the teeth are not shaved down to support the implant.
Reliable: The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for a tooth replacement.

Stress causes lifestyle changes like smoking, increased alcohol intake, depression and lack of oral hygiene
How can we protect out teeth from the effects of stress?
Your dentist can make a night guard to protect your teeth from negative effects of grinding.
Brush twice a day, floss every day and come in for regular checkups.

Stress contributes to teeth grinding which can crack our teeth. This can result in tooth loss, TMJ pain, dry mouth, canker sores and even periodontal disease.
Ask your dentist how this can all be prevented.
