Many times orthodontic treatment does not totally solve the problem.  That is the case with Rene, who was referred to me by her orthodontist.  Rene had what we refer to as a tooth size to arch shape discrepancy.  Or put another way, she has small teeth.  So after her orthodontist got everything straight, we were tasked with closing the spaces.  The more permanent way to approach this would have been to use porcelain veneers, either “prepless” or traditional.  But due to various reasons, Rene wanted me to close her spaces with composite bonding.  And it looked great.  This is all superficial, thus very conservative and when it begins to wear and show, she will still have the opportunity to replace this with porcelain.  But until that time, a pretty lady has a very pretty smile!  Thanks Rene (and Dr. Groves) for allowing us to be a part of her care.
