In capable and experienced hands, cosmetic dentistry can be a positive, life-changing experience. In this video, Kristen Ray talks about her disappointment in an original veneers procedure done before she met Dr. Theodore Siegel at Big Smile Dental in Chicago, IL. Now, she is delighted with her smile after Dr. Siegel’s artistic touch in redesigning and replacing her veneers.
A bit about veneers
Veneers are thin coverings made of lustrous dental porcelain. Each veneer is crafted to fit over a prepared tooth to improve the look of its shape, size, color, or alignment. The need for artistry extends well beyond the individual tooth. An experienced dentist considers the impact of each veneer on the continuity of the smile and the face.
Every facial characteristic must be considered for a balanced outcome:
- Hair and skin color
- Face shape
- Curvature and fullness of lips
- Prominence of gum tissue
A special case study
As Kristin discovered, without Dr. Siegel’s level of attention to detail, veneers can look oversized, blocky, or fake. After her veneers procedure with another dentist, Kristen felt her teeth looked too large for her face. She was reluctant to smile.
She came to Dr. Siegel for help, without prior dental records, impressions, or bite plates. Dr. Siegel accepted the challenge.
Kristen describes the process as positive, from the beginning. Dr. Siegel designed her veneers, created wax models, and placed temporary veneers to let Kristen “test drive” her new smile. She was ecstatic with the results, summarizing her experience this way, “He absolutely knows what he is doing.”
