Particularly when it comes to the teeth, one side should be a mirror image of the other side. In the picture you now start to notice the following:
- None of the teeth are a mirror image of the other side in both width, length and overall shape.
- The centre or mid-line is off – both between the upper and lower jaw and between the natural marker of the midline – the upper frenum.
- Overall appearance is “flat” with no artistic tooth shape.
Why? We believe this may have been done to compensate for the mini -implants.
Nick named the “wall ” with its flat square features, thick incisor (cutting ) edges and lifeless colour. Great for milling flour!
All teeth have an internal support structure which has to be designed properly. To provide strength and support to the customised layering materials, irrespective of what they might be – ceramic, composite or denture teeth. Failure here will result in future chipping of the materials or complete failure of the bridge due to a weak connector.
Can you see the difference now?
Natural looking teeth should have shape, individual customized characterization, translucency, function and correct internal design.
