Houston Cosmetic Dentist, Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF discusses that not everyone needs 8-10 veneers to create a nice smile. An article in the Wall Street Journal, discusses the consequences an unattractive smile and the benefits as well. Often patients have one or more front teeth that are in need of treatment, but the others look healthy and attractive. When this occurs, there are options to only treat these teeth and not all the teeth. The case below exemplifies how nicely this can be accomplished with artistic and cosmetic dentistry skills.
Only the front four teeth were veneered and these teeth were custom shaded to create natural appearing teeth that blend in with her natural teeth. It is not easy to do, but is a cosmetic dental skill that I feel is as important as it allows us to more conservatively achieving our patient's objectives.
