A Bite Reconstruction is often to referred to as a "Mini Facelift!"
Most people and dentists do not understand how much their jaw alignment impacts the shape of their face, the facial profile and chin size. This bite correction treatment changes lives without the risk of traditional invasive dentistry.
To learn more about Bite Reconstruction, simply request Dr. Singh’s COSMETIC GUIDE which covers these treatments in detail.
A Bite Reconstruction involves procedures that are designed to improve the health and appearance of your smile. These treatments may include veneers, crowns or implants.
SIGNS YOU NEED A BITE RECONSTRUCTION:
Improper occlusionMal-positioned teeth
Poorly shaped teeth
Frequent recurring headaches
Neck aches, headaches or pain in the jaw joints
Multiple fractured, chipped or worn teeth
Discoloured and esthetically unpleasing teeth
Less than an ideal smile
Problems with speech, swallowing and/or chewing function
THE TREATMENT PROCESS
It will take several visits to prepare and restore you new bite, the following steps will occur;
A comprehensive oral examination and evaluation of symptoms
Development of a treatment plan
Digital impressions are taken to build a model to plan your ideal bite
An orthotic is made to Test drive your proposed (new) bite
Tooth Preparation to allow room for the crowns, bridges and/or veneers your teeth will be done
Impressions are taken for the fabrication of your new hand-crafted, customized smile
Temporary crowns (at the new bite) will be bonded to the teeth to be worn for three to four weeks while your new smile is being constructed
Once we have finalized your optimal bite, your temporary crowns are removed and replaced with your beautiful, permanent new restorations.
THE DIGITAL DIFFRENCE
There are many benefits to having your Cosmetic Dentistry done at Dentistry at Vitality Health.
Smile Design. Some patients can’t visualize how their smile will look after cosmetic or implant treatment. Using our 3D Smile Design Technology, we can design and show you your new smile in less than 30 minutes.
Colour Matching.Our in-house lab means that we have a Cosmetic Expert on-site to colour match your veneers and crowns.
A-Tooth in an Hour! Our onsite Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing CAD/CAM technology enables us to create a new crown for our patients in under an hour. It’s entirely possible for you to come to our office needing a root canal, broken tooth to be fixed or an implant inserted; all which need crowns. Traditional offices would need you to come back for the final restoration a few days later, but, because we have an onsite lab, we can complete the entire treatment in one visit (if you have a healthy mouth that’s infection free).
No more gagging! Intraoral digital scanners replace the need to take dental impressions for orthodontics, crowns, veneers and implants. They capture thousands of images per second and combine to form an accurate 3D image of your teeth and gums. Over 40% of patients surveyed* indicated that they gagged when having impressions taken using traditional materials and trays. Intraoral scanners eliminate the need for trays and almost eliminate a patient’s propensity to gag. If a you do feel uncomfortable, the technician can stop the process, wait a few minutes and then begin again without having to start over. Some patients resist having treatment completed because of their gagging reflex; with this new equipment, they can relax and not worry about discomfort.
More precision. We never want to lose the human touch in our practice, but when it comes to measuring microns, technology is superior to the human eye. Not only is technology more precise, but there’s a reduced margin of error and degradation caused by repeated copying.
