Female – Improving a smile with crown and bridge work with digital dentistry
The patient had been a regular attender. Her dentition, in general, is good, but she had lost a front tooth as a child and wore a false tooth. She noted that her teeth had darkened as she had aged and that the denture no longer fitted as well as it did. She had considered implants, veneers, crowns and bridgework.
All treatment options were discussed with the patient including a new denture, implants, crown and bridgework. Implants were discussed in detail but taking into account the clinical situation i.e little bone in the area, the patient did not want to consider bone augmentation and implants.
The smile was constructed using Zirconium bridgework and crowns, in total eight units were placed the treatment commenced with Enlighten whitening of the lower anterior teeth and the upper teeth were then maintained to the whitening achieved.
Enlighten Whitening £765.00
Crown/ Bridgework £800 per unit

Number of appointments of five in total
The teeth were produced using digital dental scanning (no impressions). The digital scans were sent to the lab in London and the crowns returned within three days
