Most patients seek Dr. Rabanus' advice for significant wear of their teeth, which coincides with an older-looking smile. They seek a smile makeover. The simple placement of porcelain veneers in such cases should be avoided. Functional patterns of the masticatory system caused the early breakdown of teeth as well as the premature loss of enamel, which make teeth look old and discolored. A smile analysis needs to be complimented with a functional analysis of the jaws and the teeth. Provisional veneers are used to test the functional designs. Once comfort and aesthetics have been determined, the final porcelain veneers can be designed using the temporary dental restorations as references.
