Problem and Solution


This patient wasn’t happy about appearance of her crown and protruding teeth. She also didn’t like the unevenness and the asymmetry of her gum levels.


A gum lift was required to create symmetrical gum levels. Porcelain veneers were then used to shorten the two front teeth and align the crowding.
