    The power of four: aesthetic treatment in the anterior area.

    Restoring all visible teeth can achieve excellent results in aesthetic treatments, but conflicts with the principle of maximum preservation. Using veneers can resolve this tension, offering optical integration without sacrificing large amounts of healthy tissue.

    • In aesthetic dentistry, the recommendation that all visible teeth be restored for optical integration often conflicts with the importance of preserving tooth structure and leaving healthy teeth untouched.

      This tension, though, can be resolved through precise treatment planning and teamwork. A cosmetic dentistry team recently achieved a good result for a patient with spacing in the anterior region by placing four veneers on her maxillary incisors. To minimise veneer thickness, the tooth shade was controlled by bleaching the underlying tooth structure, rather than the enamel layer.

      These measures delivered both aesthetics and functionality, without sacrificing large amounts of healthy tissue on more complex treatment.
