This patient presented with a veneer on the upper right central incisor whose shape did not match the upper left central incisor (see the arrow) and was the wrong color. The result was an artificial, square-looking tooth that had inflamed gum tissue because it was squeezed by the veneer’s bulky contours. After whitening her other teeth, we fabricated an all-ceramic (porcelain) crown with contours that are biocompatible with her gingiva (gums).
