Creating an esthetic result that is pleasing to both the patient and the dentist requires careful consideration of patient concerns and treatment goals. This article presents a case involving a patient with many esthetic concerns. Following in-depth examination of the patient and consultations, an esthetic treatment plan involving the placement of laminate veneers was developed and executed. After the first set of laminate veneers was placed, some concerns led to an alteration in the proposed treatment plan. Each step of the treatment plan must be assessed before the next step is performed to guarantee a result that is both functional and esthetically pleasing.
