Today a female patient came in for insertion and cementation of veneers from #4-14. Previously the patient had veneers from #6-11, which she was satisfied with, but she wanted a full new set of upper veneers completed to make her smile beautiful. At the last visit the current veneers on #6-11 were removed and #4-14 were prepped and temped. At this visit the temporaries were removed by cutting them down the mid-facial aspect with a bur. Incipient decay was removed on teeth # 4, 12, 13, and 14. The veneers were tried in and shown to the patient before cementation, and the patient was quite satisfied with the shape, size, and color. The veneers were the cemented in with Nexus Base Clear, a very esthetic cement. Occlusion and esthetics were checked. She will return later for mandibular veneers.
