Remember that whitening case a few weeks back? Well, my patient actually came to us because of a post I put up here on butterfly incisors, and how I corrected them using composite veneers.

So with a bit more polishing and recontouring, I managed to satisfy both myself and Miss K. It’s true what they say, dentistry is a whole lot of listening, patience, careful observation and determination to please.
Listening to patients wants and needs goes a long way in getting them to trust your skills and judgement in this job. Though at times it can be stressful and demanding, it can be really satisfying if both you and the patient appreciate the final outcome.
