Sarah was a case of crowded teeth and significant gingival recession. Her treatment options included a combination of orthodontics with periodontics, surgically covered all of her exposed root surfaces. Orthodontics and periodontics were cost prohibitive.
The patient desired porcelain laminate veneers. The dilemma is how to not only correct the crowded teeth, but also to correct the gum architecture. Each porcelain laminate veneer was measured in height and the extension of porcelain to the end of the exposed root was matched with gingival colored porcelain.
