Whitening and Four Porcelain Veneers – So Natural It Took His Mom 4 Days to Notice!
When this patient came to me he wanted to improve his smile. He felt like the gap between his front teeth somewhat defined his looks (He called it his All-Star Spittin’ Gap), so he was unsure if he wanted to close it. He did not like how one front tooth was dark, and he wanted an overall better looking smile.
He was concerned about his teeth looking different, and he didn’t really want to advertise that he was having any work done. He wanted his smile to look natural and to look like it was truly his smile.
I really enjoy cases where patients really want a natural look. A beautiful white smile doesn’t have to look fake or “Hollywood.” In fact, many of my patients improve their smile dramatically, but it looks so natural that people don’t notice. Their friends and colleagues tell them they look really good, and wonder if they’ve lost weight or changed their hair or makeup. These patients simply smile and say thank you.
Oh, and BTW, this patient went home to visit his mom. He warned me this would be the REAL challenge. He called me after he got back, laughing. He told me he had spent the entire weekend with his mom, and on the morning he flew, home she looked at him and exclaimed, “You fixed your teeth! Your smile looks beautiful!”
