Veneers for maximizing the aesthetics of the smile
Female patient, 45.
Maxillary anterior teeth, displaying a tendency toward an inverted smile with incisal edge of the centers on the same level as the sides or slightly above.
Despite good oral health, teeth had become darkened and there was a tendency toward an inverted smile.
After computerized planning, it was noted that a change in shape and color of the teeth could rejuvenate the smile. Ceramic veneers were chosen, from canine to canine. Even with conservative dental preparations, sufficient ceramic thickness was needed to substantially alter the color of teeth and to give them a more suitable shape, without harming the occlusion.
