This patient was not happy with several aspects of her smile. One of her front teeth was discolored, and she did not like the spacing or the length of her front teeth. She simply wanted a smile that addresses these issues.
Porcelain veneers are made from a ceramic material that is bonded to the front of teeth to change the tooth's color, size and/or shape. Their primary benefit is aesthetic – improving the look or color of teeth and a patient’s smile. Veneers must be made outside of the mouth, and they require more than one visit to apply. The natural results we can achieve with porcelain veneers are incredible.
I recommended the placement of eight porcelain veneers – four on her top and four on her bottom front teeth. The procedure took two patient visits.
With the placement of the veneers, we lengthened several of the patient’s teeth and closed the spaces. The tooth color is consistent and very natural. The patient loved her new smile.
