Ms. V. came to my office to discuss her smile. She told me that, ” I had never been happy with my veneers”.
After a couple of visits to get to know the patient and collecting adequate information about Ms. V. and a thorough discussion with the patient, it was decided that the shape, proportion, and shades of the teeth need to be modified in order to make them look ideal and customize to what patient desired. I was redoing someone else’s work so I was under pressure to assure my patient that I would deliver exactly what she wanted.
Patient went through a provisional stage for a few weeks when the esthetics were evaluated and occlusion was tested & adjusted to achieve a stable bite. I duplicated the provisional veneers and crowns and transferred them to my master ceramist technician with a detail description about the shade, shape, size and how the veneers should be fabricated.
The end result is the product of several hours of planning & re-evaluating before executing the process.
The patient was ecstatic with the result.
