Although everyone thought our patient from Houston Heights was pretty, she never liked her smile. The gaps between her front teeth remained even after orthodontics. This made her self-conscious about her smile throughout her teenage and college years. She also felt that her front teeth were too small, and she wanted to change the appearance. It was important to her that the end result was natural, and that no one would know that she had cosmetic dentistry done. Dr. Neela Patel was able to show her with study models and pictures that she could veneer her front for teeth to give her the natural smile that she dreamnt of. The patient was eager, but nervous. As always, Dr Neela Patel refined the temporaries to match the shape of her face and smile so that the lab was able to follow the shape of the temporaries to make the veneers match her face and blend in well. The patient saw the lab for a custom shade appointment so the lab could note the nuances in the shapes and shades of her teeth. All the planning paid off in an ecstatic patient with a long lasting happy smile!
