Nice Front Teeth Begin with the Temporaries

When restoring front teeth, we begin the process with temporary restorations.  Below is a case in progress.  In a 90 minutes appointment I removed the patient’s old misfit veneers and made her two acrylic temporaries.  I use the temporaries to test out the length, shape, contour, and position of her front teeth in relation to her adjacent teeth as well as her lip.  I will continue to make changes to the temporaries until the patient is happy with the way the front teeth look.

Next, my patient will begin to whiten her teeth so that I can match her final porcelain restorations to a brighter smile.  She is already ecstatic with these temporaries even though they are work in progress.
