This patient came to our office wanting to improve the looks of her smile. She was unhappy with the color of her front tooth, and she wanted them to all match. When the patient was very young she fell and pushed her baby tooth into her gums. This caused her front permanent tooth to be dark when it came in. Over the years the patient had several white fillings placed over the tooth to cover it up. As with many fillings, over time, they will begin to stain and not match. Dr. Ruggless proposed placing three dental veneers to match her other teeth in the front. The communication between the doctor and lab technician, who makes the veneers, is very important in getting great results. Photography is used to aid in getting the veneers the correct custom shade to blend into the patient's smile. Dr. Ruggless takes photos both inside and outside to get the best possible results. The patient was extremely happy with the final results, and was very eager to show off her new smile! Dental veneers can be a minimally invasive way to completely change a person's smile.
