Let’s look at a great example. Greg had front teeth that needed to be restored after having plastic (or composite) veneers for many years. But the spaces between his teeth were very large. To properly restore these teeth and make them look their best I recommended Greg see the orthodontist first. He wasn’t happy. Especially after he got the braces placed on his teeth.

But the treatment time wasn’t too long and afterwards I was able to craft a beautiful new smile with only a few porcelain veneers. The ultimate result required less work, involved fewer teeth, and looked FAR better than if we tried the ‘instant’ method!

I’ll admit something up front…I’m a much better dentist than graphics designer! With that in mind, take a look at my rendition of what some patients look like after having unnecessary extractions before orthodontics. Yes, as I stated earlier, the TEETH are straight. But the ultimate result is a ‘caved in’ or ‘pulled back’ look to the lower face. The next time you take a look at someone who has braces or needs them, keep this in mind.

And don’t worry….I won’t be trying a new career as a Photoshop editor!

Porcelain veneers for Charlotte cosmetic patient

Saw an interesting case a few days ago. Lady had been told by a local ‘cosmetic’ dentist she needs a slew of veneers and was looking for a second opinion. She didn’t like the spacing or positioning of her teeth and was concerned with the difference in the level of the gum tissue around her front teeth. After examining and photographing her teeth I determined there was NO reason to have veneers. The teeth were perfectly healthy with no fillings or excessive wear. They were the correct ‘size’ and proportion. A few months with Invisalign braces, a trip to the gum specialist for a slight alteration in her tissue heights, and some whitening (or bleaching) is all she needed. She’s heading to see the orthodontist to get started!
How many times would she have been told she needs veneers, when some ‘minor’ tooth movement is all that is necessary?
