Allen Dentist, Dr. Mentesana shares a cosmetic dentistry success story

Porcelain veneers and crowns

A 54 year old female from Mckinney, Texas came into the dental office wanting to change her smile. She did not like the color of her teeth or the shape of the front teeth. Options of teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns were discussed. Teeth whitening alone would not have changed the shape of the teeth. Veneers would have been challenging with the amount of wear that the teeth had endured in the past, meaning that teeth grinding is most likely a problem. Porcelain crowns were the best option giving her strength, beauty, and the ability to change both color and form. Preparations before the appointment included a mock up of the final outcome. After a simple procedure, the patient left with temporary crowns with the improvements made. Two weeks later, the porcelain crowns were placed. The patient is now very happy with her smile. I think you will agree that the difference is remarkable!
