Kate was missing the upper left lateral incisor, so the pointy canine (that is the second tooth on the right as you look at her smile) was in its place. The priority for both of us was to give her the best and most attractive smile. Apart from just straightening her teeth, this involved placing the incisors in the centre of her smile, with the gum margins in the correct position relative to her upper lip as well as broadening her smile to maximise its appeal. Treatment also involved reshaping the canine to mimic a lateral incisor and adding some white ‘composite’ filling to the tooth behind to make it look like a canine. She was thrilled with how great her smile looked when we took the brace off!
