Smile Rejuvenation - Haslet, TX
Smile Rejuvenation Working Mom
A female in her late 40's and wonderful mother came to Dr. Shattuck in Haslet, TX concerned about her yellowing and chipped teeth. After spending years putting her children first, she had decided it was time to take care of herself. After an initial consultation with Dr. Shattuck, it was decided that in order to strengthen her teeth and replace lost enamel, porcelain veneers would be fabricated and bonded to her teeth. Because veneers are so long lasting and do not bleach, Dr. Shattuck recommended that using GLO to whiten her teeth to help brighten her smile and give her a revitalized but natural look. She agreed. After one in office whitening session with GLO Dr. Shattuck achieved the desired results and were ready to move forward with restoring her smile. More
Personalized Sculpting Work
After taking the patient's initial impression, as well as some preliminary measurements of her gums, tooth sizes, and smile Dr. Shattuck sculpted a personalized new smile for her and prepared a vacuum formed temporary that was filled with a tooth colored resin material and applied to her teeth. At her next consult appointment Dr. Shattuck applied the temporary to her teeth and together the patient and Dr. Shattuck discussed what she liked about the preliminary sculpt and potential alterations of tooth size, color, and shape. The patient even snapped a few selfies to take home and show her husband and family members so that she could get a few "second opinions". More
Procedure and Results
When the patient came in to prepare her teeth for the veneers, less than 1 mm of enamel was removed. The teeth were roughened to prepare them for bonding and then a new set of temporary veneers based on Dr. Shattuck's final sculpt was temporarily bonded in place to prepare the patient's gums and teeth to receive the final veneers. After two weeks the temporary was removed and the final veneers bonded in place using the latest composite bonding techniques. More
