Porcelain veneers are often an excellent way to improve ones smile, yet not all veneers are the same. Smile design is essential and makes the difference between a good case and an excellent case. There are many factors that need to be considered with smile designs. In the case below the first set of veneers does not fit the patients face and the midline is off as well. Addtionally, the veneers appear to be run together and lack individuality. The teeth may be white but just do not exhibit artistry to make a beautiful smile.
The second photo shows the patient after the veneers were redone with advanced smile design. It is easy to see how the teeth now fit the patient, look more individual and natural and yet are still very white. The porcelain was also layered to create a beautiful effect as opposed to chiclet appearance. This case shows how important many factors are to create a beautiful smile.
