Cosmetic Dentistry Before & After

Marla: Porcelain Veneers Marla was tired of living with a smile that she was not proud of, and wanted a natural, beautiful change. She had spaces between her front teeth, chipped and worn tooth edges, and she felt her smile looked short and dull. Dr. Theodore did a full analysis and determined that anterior veneers would be the best solution to improve the color, shape and length of Marla's teeth, as well as correct her bite.
