Today's patient came to us with complaints about the shape of their anterior (front) teeth. The teeth appeared too small or "boxy," and a large proportion of the smile was occupied by gum tissue. To correct these concerns, our office decided to utilize cosmetic veneers in conjunction with esthetic crown lengthening.
Crown lengthening is a procedure performed by a periodontist where the gum tissue is contoured to reveal more tooth structure. Dr. Wilgus at Camarillo Periodontics worked with us to treat this patient and delivered phenomenal results. Even before veneers, the teeth have better proportions and the smile has a less "gummy" appearance. The next step will be to prepare the teeth and design a set of natural and uniform cosmetic veneers. We cant wait to see the final product!
