Smile rehabilitation of anterior teeth using Ceramic Veneers
A young woman came to our clinic with a complaint of discolored teeth. She had sensitivity due to the presence of pitted surfaces. She was not satisfied with her smile and requested an immediate solution.
She had already visited many dentists elsewhere. She was advised to undergo direct composite veneering. Direct veneering was attempted for upper and lower front teeth before 1 year. She was not satisfied with the results as the stains were still visible.
She visited our hospital after extensive research. Complete clinical and radiological evaluation done. She was diagnosed with Dental Fluorosis.
Fluorosis is a cosmetic condition caused due to excessive intake of fluoride at a young age. It affects enamel causing tooth discoloration along with possible physical damage. The severity of the condition depends upon duration, age and exposure to fluoride.
Following clinical evaluation, our cosmetic dental team suggested ceramic veneering of the upper and lower front teeth.
