The patient’s primary concerns were that the very thin edges of her teeth were continually chipping away and that she also had a gap between her two upper front teeth. In the before photos, it is clear that the “scalloping” of the gumline is not symmetrical when we look at the right side versus the left side. However, since the patient had a low smile line (i.e. did not show a lot of gum when she smiled), this was not a factor in the final aesthetics of the case.
This patient was involved in an accident when she was younger and chipped the two upper incisors. Composite resin fillings were placed; however, the fillings repeatedly chipped and/or stained with time. In this case, two porcelain veneers were placed on the central incisors to give an incredibly pleasing, yet durable restoration.
