Before and after photos on supernumerary or hyperdontia means extra teeth performed in our Extraction Oral Surgery office.
Cosmetic Dentistry treatment of a patient with a supernumerary tooth. Supernumerary teeth are one or more extra tooth that occasionally occur. This treatment involved extraction of the supernumerary tooth and cosmetic teeth bonding on the adjacent remaining teeth to close the gap spaces. Treatment time: one visit.
The supernumerary extra tooth was first prepared – drilled to make it narrower – to open the interproximal area between the remaining teeth. Dental bonding was then placed in the gap spaces on both teeth as if the supernumerary tooth was already gone. This allowed the bonding to be performed in a clean field without bleeding. Then the supernumerary tooth was extracted.
