A Multidisciplinary Conservative Approach for Esthetic Correction of Anterior Crowding: A Clinical Case Report

Emil Hawary, DDS

Pages: 264-274
DOI: 10.11607/ajed.0080

For the cosmetic dentist, anterior crowding can be a big challenge. Esthetic correction of patients with anterior crowding involves orthodontics, restorative treatment, or both. The majority of adult patients seeking smile enhancements in such cases are reluctant to wear visible orthodontic appliances and opt for a more esthetic alternative such as the Invisalign system. The case presented in this article demonstrates a multidisciplinary approach to correct severe anterior crowding using the Invisalign appliance, indirect veneers, and direct composite resin bonding to esthetically improve the patientís smile. The patient was pleased that his smile was corrected in a relatively short time with the invisible aligners. Also, the veneer preparations were conservative because the teeth were in proper alignment. Similar cases can be treated with the multidisciplinary approach described to achieve predictable results that have a positive impact on patientsí lives.
