This patient from Houston Heights came to our practice seeking a smile that fit her personality and face. Dr Neela Patel was able to a analyze her smile using pictures, and models to determine where the patients teeth should be. A diagnostic wax-up was done to show the patient what her results could be. Dr. Neela Patel also checks the function of the teeth in this model to make sure that the best bite can be achieved for the patient. Function and esthetics are always hand in hand in her preparations for patients. The patient was aware of the long appointments and responsibilities she would have to achieve her new look, and she was excited and ready to begin! Her final smile did involve seeing a specialist to lengthen certain teeth to keep the bones and gums healthy.
