This patient already has a very good smile but at a young age is showing signs of teeth clenching and grinding. When patients clench and grind their teeth, the teeth get shorter and laminates are a good solution. The idea of placing dental veneers or laminates is to add back the lost enamel from tooth erosion or wear. Enamel replacement can be achieved with veneers that require no prep. (non-invasive dentistry)
After discussing non-invasive dentistry and neuromuscular dentistry the patient decided to combine her porcelain veneers with the exclusive Face Lift Dentistry® treatment by Dr. Muslin. She needed her overbite corrected as well as her smile brightened. The goal of treatment was to achieve deep overbite correction combined with neuromuscular dentistry using the Dental Face Lift® technology developed by Dr. Muslin. He is known for is innovative, non-invasive dentistry treatment. Typically, non-invasive porcelain veneers look thick but from the before and after photos of her dental veneers, the veneer are natural in appearance and have natural tooth contours.
The Anti-Hollywood Smile
The great big, fake white teeth veneers that are associated with the Hollywood Smile are not desirable for most patients. They want veneers that are whiter and brighter but they do not want that fake Hollywood Smile type of porcelain veneers. Many patients want their dental veneers to look natural.
Elegant laminates that save all of the patients tooth structure and that look natural are the best cosmetic dentistry. A porcelain veneer can look natural or it can look thick. The best cosmetic dentist can create an elegant veneer that transmits light the same as natural teeth yet give the straight white teeth a natural glow.
Treating Crooked Teeth with Veneers
Perfect Veneer Color Match
When only four teeth get laminates or porcelain veneers, the color must match the natural teeth perfectly. Veneers will typically transmit light differently than natural teeth but when the optics are matched, the color transmission of the porcelain veneers to the natural teeth is perfect. His teeth were crooked and he did not want to have teeth veneers placed on all of his teeth. He was on a limited budget so instead, only the four crooked teeth were treated with laminates.
Slanted teeth also have an uneven appearance and cosmetic dentistry can give the patient instant braces for a fast solution in just a few days. The treatment can be completed in such a short period of time that the porcelain veneer can completely change the appearance of the patient by making a slanted tooth or crooked teeth look like straight teeth very quickly.
