Few people realize the importance a smile can play in everyday life. Misshapen or crooked teeth can negatively impact your appearance, possibly resulting in fewer job offerings, less opportunity for relationships and bad first impressions. With cosmetic dentistry becoming more affordable for the average consumer, more people are deciding on teeth straightening procedures at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville in New Jersey to improve their smile.

When Sally first came to Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, she was upset about her smile, knowing that her misshapen teeth was aging her face, making her appear older. After talking to Dr. Cheryl Tauriello about possible options including Invisalign, Sally ultimately decided on porcelain veneers to repair her smile.

After the porcelain veneers were placed, Dr. Tauriello decided that Sally would also require gum recontouring to achieve the smile she wished.

To accomplish this, Dr Tauriello created a model of Sally's teeth to determine the most aesthetically correct position of her gum line. After finding the best gum contour in relation to her teeth, Dr. Tauriello used the diode laser to recontour the gums into the aesthetically correct position resulting in fantastic results and a satisfied patient.
