Tooth color depends on both the age of the patient and their skin tone. Shades that are too light in some cases do not look natural, and in other cases, greatly enhance the patient’s smile.
The shape of tooth selection is dependent upon the shape of the patient’s face. For example, longer teeth often have a narrowing effect on patients who have rounder faces.
More youthful smiles often have longer teeth. Even if teeth have been worn over years, a more youthful smile can often be created by lengthening the front teeth. Porcelain veneers and in some cases, re-contouring gum tissue can create this youthful effect. The porcelain veneers used are as thin as fingernails, yet when bonded to teeth create strength and beauty that is unparalleled.
In many cases, using porcelain veneers we can create a perfect arch and smile without orthodontic treatment. This can be done in as little as one visit with CEREC. Discolored teeth, worn teeth and chipped teeth can be treated using the same porcelain technology.
