Correcting Enamel Tooth Deformities that Affect the Smile

Description:
Enamel tooth defects appearing at the junction between the crown and root can alter the gingival architecture and thereby the patient's perception of his or her smile. When these defects belong to a person whose smile is a major asset to his or her appearance, they can psychologically alter the ability of the person to fully smile or even laugh. This presentation will show diagnosis and correction of labio-gingival enamel defects and the resulting improvement in a young lady's smile.

Good questions...first I normally bevel Class V restorations into the enamel. In this case I felt it was not necessary. As for the rubber dam...the main reason not using it here was the fear of getting additional gingival shrinkage.
