This 55-year-old lady from North Carolina came to us with the main concern “my teeth are too short, but I ‘am afraid to get something I don’t like and for now, I just want to make my top teeth”
After a full set of x-rays, a full set of photos, a couple of impressions, and a complete clinical exam, we checked photos together and she explained why she was unhappy with the size of her teeth and the way she smiles. We knew she needed to check on a mock-up before we did anything.
We suggested 12 porcelain veneers and she was happy with the proposal.
We started a very conservative preparation, made impressions and gave her a set of temporary veneers based on the mock up. We took a new set of pictures to understand the reach and any possible changes.
A week later we had the esthetic try appointment, she was really happy about the final restorations.
The next day we bonded the veneers and tested the bite. On her last day, we did a final bite adjustment, gave her a mouth guard, took x rays and final pictures. She is now super proud of her new smile
