Porcelain Veneers require great skill and artistry


1 month ago a 23-year-old patient started Porcelain Veneers procedure with great excitement, unfortunately, what happened from there created a very traumatizing experience. Although she expected her teeth not to be drilled too much for veneers, what she saw after drilling was very painful to her (Fig 2). This was made much worse because her temporary veneers and final veneers did not look anything like she was hoping for (Fig 1)

After multiple unhappy visits, the patient ended up switching dentists. She did her homework, researching for a recognized expert in cosmetic dentistry and veneers. Dr. Ruiz has performed thousands of successful porcelain veneers cases for people in the entertainment industry.

15 years ago a patient in her mid-40s started Porcelain Veneers with amazing enthusiasm and will, regrettably, what happened created a very unpleasing experience. She expected her natural teeth to not be drilled too much for veneers, what she saw after the drilling made her internally ill (Fig 2). What made the situation much worse was that her temporary veneers did not look anything close to what she was wanting (Fig 1).

After doing the right research the patient ended up switching dentists. What she found was a recognized expert in cosmetic dentistry and veneers which has performed thousands of successful Porcelain Veneer cases.
