Discolored and worn teeth are a telltale sign of age and a misaligned bite. One can look at this as a car out of alignment, simply replacing the tire will not correct the problem unless you align the car. Simply placing a crown on teeth does not align the bite. The good news is that it is possible to correct a misaligned bite and create a beautiful long-lasting smile too.
This case shows a situation in which the the front teeth were chipping, discoloring, and wearing prematurely. The patient had noticed this slowly getting worse and thinner through the years. She was becoming increasingly self-conscious about her appearance. Bite alignment protocols and then customized porcelain veneers were used to create a beautiful and more youthful smile. The porcelain was artistically contoured to look like natural teeth as opposed to chiclets. The benefits of bite alignment are that this helps to allow the new work to last a long time as opposed to wearing the in the same manner the natural teeth did.
