Minimal Prep Veneers for Tetracycline Discolored Teeth
Caitlin’s teeth were dark and discolored from tetracycline medication she had to take when she was a baby. Caitlin’s mom brought Caitlin to see me when Caitlin was in her early twenties. Caitlin wanted a white pretty smile, and her mom wanted to make sure that a dentist didn’t grind away Caitlin’s teeth for traditional veneers. Both Caitlin and her mom wanted her to have a natural-(not fake) looking smile.
Using a very minimal prep approach to Caitlin’s case, I used 10 porcelain veneers to cover up the darkness and improve the overall shape and appearance of her smile. Both Mom and Daughter were very happy with the results. And, because of our minimally-invasive approach and the positive experiences delivered by our team, Caitlin has referred dozens of new patients to our practice. It’s the highest compliment she could give us!
