This patient had dark, short, rotated and mismatched teeth with spacing. Eight porcelain veneers were placed to improve the smile by taking into consideration size proportion of the teeth, color and a smile design that matched the patient’s face.
Treatment consisted of a gum lift using a laser, followed by five porcelain veneers and replacing the old, discolored crown with a more natural Emax ceramic crown. The result shows a more pleasing and bright smile.
The front teeth were also at an angle. By using EMAX veneers, we were able to make the canines look like lateral incisors, improve the location of the mid-line and correct the angulation of the two front teeth.
This patient had a fractured tooth due to an accident on her bicycle. One of the most challenging things to perform in cosmetic dentistry is to match a single porcelain restoration to an adjacent natural tooth.
