Our patient’s orthodontist was really thinking about the final outcome. Instead of closing all the spaces at the end of treatment, he allowed equal spaces to remain in front of and behind the lateral incisor teeth.

This allowed the smaller lateral incisors to be restored in correct proportion to the central incisors resulting in a well balanced smile.

The worn edges of the central incisors were restored with composite resin (bonding). The lateral incisors were restored conservatively with porcelain veneers.

It is always so rewarding to finish a case when the journey has been long. In this case it was the orthodontics that took the longest amount of time. However, the effort is well worth the reward of seeing our patient smile.
