Some of the fun artistic cases for me involve changing the smiles for men. In the case below we used a combination of gum contour, resin bonding on the canines, porcelain veneers on the lateral incisors, and porcelain crowns on the central incisors to change the patient’s smile.
We replicated details like the patient’s natural shade transition and the surface characteristics to make the restorations look as natural as possible. When we try to achieve a natural look, length, shape, contour, are also intentionally made slightly imperfect because in the natural dentition perfect symmetry among the teeth rarely exists.
