Question about grooming
Due to trauma, a piece of both front teeth had broken off. On the front teeth is a facing made of composite, however, each time pieces broke off and discolored the composite.
Only the two front teeth here were treated with porcelain veneers.
Using light photographs and prints, the dental technician can create a washout on the plaster model. The teeth are made in the correct length and shape completely according to the patient’s wishes. The old composite is removed and with special bonding techniques the teeth are rebuilt and made into the right shape. To make veneers, we only need 0.3-0.5 millimeter space!
After the veneers were made in Los Angeles, they were fitted in the mouth and then bonded to her teeth with special bonding techniques. Achieving excellent results like this requires close cooperation between the dental technician and the dentist.
