Explore The Case Studies
A 62-year-old male patient presented to the practice with very deep decay on tooth #14 to the level of the alveolar crest. Clinical crown lengthening was required to restore the tooth. With Solea, it was possible to perform the surgery and place the definitive restoration on the same day.
A 52-year-old male patient presented to the practice with a large oral lesion on his lower lip that bothered him esthetically. He was referred to the practice by a prosthodontist who preferred the dentist’s Solea treatment to the traditional oral surgery. This case demonstrates the ease and speed with which Solea enables injection- and blood-free soft tissue procedures.
Anterior Cerec Veneers With Esthetic Crown Lengthening
A 43-year-old female patient was unhappy with her smile and the way her teeth looked. The oral evaluation indicated that teeth #7,8,9,10 had discrepancy in the size of the teeth. The dentist advised a mix of esthetic gingival contouring and esthetic crown lengthening to correct variations in gingival height as well as porcelain veneers to restore the maxillary central and lateral incisors. Solea enabled a fast, precise, blood- and suture-free procedure with faster healing time than the traditional surgical treatment.
Gingivectomy And Depigmentation
A 13-year-old female patient was scheduled for a single tooth gingivectomy on tooth #7 due to puberty/hormone-induced gingival hyperplasia. The patient asked about lightening her dark gingiva and was treated with a 6-tooth gingivectomy and gingival depigmentation. Done with Solea, this procedure included two extensive soft tissue procedures with no anesthesia, minimal bleeding and fast healing.
