Porcelain veneers within reason allow for the alteration of tooth position, shape, size and color.

Although not the only alternative for all esthetic abnormalities, they are truly a remarkable restoration when they are the treatment of choice.

In this day and age, dental professionals are exposed to many complex esthetic, restorative and functional challenges. Fortunately, there’s an equal number of dental procedures and materials available to accomplish treatment of these complex challenges. Treatment alternatives are either termed traditional or nontraditional. For dental professionals who are dedicated to providing state-of-art solutions, treatment outside of “traditional” must be considered every now and then.
One of the most challenging esthetic restorations are the replacement of congenitally missing lateral incisors. When a clinician is presented with the replacement of congenitally missing lateral incisors, they must consider the types of treatments available, along with the possible outcome. The traditional treatment options include orthodontics, traditional 3-unit bridge, single tooth implant, or Maryland Bridge.
