Esthetic Rehabilitation with Lingual and Facial Veneers after Orthodontic Treatment; Clinical and Technical Diagnostic Esthetic Approach
In the present scenario, the people’s esthetic requirements and expectations have increased substantially.
Hence, the dentists are faced with ever increasing demands to provide their patients with highly esthetic, durable tooth-colored restorations while maintaining a conservative approach to tooth reduction.
Over the past 25 years, porcelain veneers can be used for changing the shape or color of the teeth, aligning the teeth, and replacing a pre-existing composite veneer for better esthetics.
Patients seek such restorations for a variety of reasons ranging from a minor diastema to a complex malocclusion.
Although many patients choose this treatment purely for cosmetic purposes, the dentist should aim at both functional and esthetic purposes.
Therefore, dentists should perform a complete examination of the patient before selecting and planning treatment.
For optimum results, unaesthetic treatment plan must take into account whether orthodontic movements will enhance the success or stability of the definitive restorations.
The combining procedures such as orthodontics and porcelain veneers provide conservative, predictable, esthetic, and functional results.
Thus, the aim of this study case was to emphasize the importance of orthodontic treatment in improving esthetic results obtained by porcelain veneers prior to their placement.1
