Title: Aesthetic rehabilitation of peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors



In recent years, there has been a noticeable rise in patient expectations regarding aesthetic dentistry. The pursuit of the perfect smile has become increasingly prevalent, influenced by the enhanced appearances of celebrities and public figures following smile corrections. Among the common dental irregularities, peg-shaped lateral incisors stand out as they can significantly affect the harmony of the smile and impact patient psychology due to their smaller size and shape incongruity with neighboring teeth.

Clinical observance:

A 23-year-old female patient, with an unremarkable medical history, presented to the Department of Fixed Prosthodontics seeking aesthetic improvement. Her primary concern revolved around enhancing her smile, which she perceived as unsightly due to the presence of two peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors.

Following a comprehensive clinical examination, the treatment plan involved the fabrication of two all-ceramic crowns for teeth 12 and 22, utilizing the IPS e.max CAD system reinforced by lithium disilicate.

Conclusions: The aesthetic rehabilitation of peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors exemplifies the pivotal role of modern dental techniques in addressing patient concerns and enhancing smiles. By combining advanced prosthetic materials and meticulous treatment planning, this case underscores the potential for achieving aesthetically pleasing outcomes and restoring patient confidence in their smile.

Audience Take Away:

  • Dentists and prosthodontists can learn about the treatment approach for addressing peg-shaped lateral incisors, including the use of all-ceramic crowns and modern CAD/CAM technology while respecting the therapeutic gradient.
  • They can apply this knowledge in their practice when treating patients with similar aesthetic concerns, helping them achieve more pleasing and harmonious smiles.
