Veneers & Soft Tissue Associations

The use of Veneers is becoming more common every year. The basic principals of biologic width apply stringently to veneers. Subgingival margins to balance a smile will create inflammation and eventual uncontrolled recession. Tenderness, redness and swelling will occur. It is important to perform Periodontal Plastic Surgery procedures prior to beginning veneers.
