The photos show the amazing results from careful planning and smile design. The first step involved gum lift procedures to decrease the amount gum tissue when she smiles.  The second involved minimal preparation porcelain veneers ( which some refer to as Lumineers).  Prior to beginning, Digital Smile Design was used to plan the new smile and to create a smile for her age, facial proportions and facial features.  Additional considerations were the anatomy, luster, translucency, and the length of the teeth.

The final results show a very conservative way to enhance ones smile and confidence.
