When Justice came to see us he was hoping there was a solution other than braces. He really didn’t want to go through a long process of tooth movement to correct his smile and wanted to know if there was a better option. Justice has a bite condition where his upper front teeth don’t meet his lower front- this is called an open bite. An open bite can cause numerous problems; the most serious being the overuse of the back teeth since the front teeth are not coming into contact and eventually the teeth will be flattened. The other issue that needed to be addressed with Justice was the uneven gum levels especially in the upper back area. Our plan for Justice included correcting the gum levels with a laser gum lift; placing laminates on the upper and lower front areas to establish contact of the upper with the lower teeth and creating symmetry and proportion of the smile.
