Michael felt that his smile undermined his confidence. His teeth were worn, crooked, discolored, and small. He came in on the recommendation from his girlfriend who had also received cosmetic dentistry at our office. Michael received a short course of braces to put his teeth in a healthy position and ensure restorations wouldn’t be damaged. Then we placed porcelain veneers to enlarge his teeth and give them a healthy white color. His new smile has given him the confidence to be more outgoing and even apply for–and win–a new job.
