We propose the patient to make 2 veneers also on the laterals, to have a better esthetic integration, and a more omogenus form of the arch.

As you can notice from 9 and 10, we asked the lab to prepare a bulky wax up.

This will make the teeth much more resistant and the esthetic outcome better.

Conclusions

Veneer 3M light cure material it is very easy to manage, not needed to be in a hurry during the cementation phase, not needed to warm composite traditional material with the risk of fracturing the thin veneers: perfect choice!
