I have a 60 year old lady coming to surgery tomorrow wanting veneers UL1 and UR1 (actually – I may have triggered her off!).. anyways.. I would have never ever ever suggested veneers except for the MSc.. she has hypoplastic enamel which is pitted and stained and a prominent crack running longitudinally across the UL1 which is heavily stained. She says her teeth have always looked blackish!
1. she has a high scalloped gingiva UR1 and a shallow scallop UL1 – Need to do gingival contouring (would I need to trim bone?) -when do i take impressions? at the same appointment as contouring or after 1 week?
2. she has a high smile line
3. would whitening help? (pitted enamel).. and if i have to do veneers.. should i first be starting with whitening???
any help would be appreciated!
