This veneer case done by Dr. Strandburg was performed to replace a poorly repaired broken tooth. A single porcelain veneer was able to replace the unnatural appearance of the composite bonding, creating a very natural result. Matching two front teeth is considered “the hardest thing in dentistry” due to the human eye’s ability to detect asymmetries. When a maximum esthetic result is desired, a porcelain veneer is often required.
This veneer revision completed by Dr. Strandburg achieved several of the patient’s goals. The initial veneers left a poorly functioning bite, dark color, asymmetry, and harsh lines and edges. The new veneers corrected the bite function, brightened the color, improved symmetry, and created a softer, more feminine and natural look. Additionally, the improved fit of the veneers allowed the patient’s gums to heal where they had previously been inflamed.
