When creating a smile, it is important to take many factors into consideration to accomplish all the esthetic, functional, structural, and biological goals of the treatment. The patient’s face must be carefully evaluated and the treatment plan chosen must accomplish all the desired results while being as conservative as possible. Sometimes when minor changes are required, very little tooth structure is removed and veneers can be done. Other times, bite problems must be taken into account and the patient’s height of the lower part of the face needs to be increased or decreased and an entire arch of crowns may need to be done. In cases where the patient’s mandible (lower jaw) needs to be repositioned, both the upper and lower teeth sometimes need to be treated with a combination of crowns and veneers to properly address the muscle issues causing pain. Having a beautiful smile created for you is going to be as unique as the situations that present. We will have many conversations so you understand all the issues and can make choices regarding which issues you would like to treat.
