Before and After Fixing Hayley’s Uneven Smile

Picture of a patient’s uneven smile.

Do you have an uneven smile?

Are you keeping your uneven teeth hidden with tight-lipped smiles often misconstrued as haughty smirks?

Or worse:

Do you just never smile, so people think you’re unapproachable?

When it comes down to it, many people like you choose to hide an uneven smile because it can make you look more childlike. Smile imperfections can severely lower your self-esteem, significantly impacting every aspect of your life – including your professional interactions.

It’s often easy to choose not to smile over allowing someone else to see your smile’s flaws.

In fact:

Hayley was just like you. She was very unhappy with her smile and how it made her look childish and less sophisticated.

She wanted a confident smile to help her own her space in every interaction of her life. Her smile goal was a whiter, brighter, more perfect-looking smile to suit her personality and professional aspirations.

How to Fix an Uneven Smile

A customized smile design using porcelain veneers gave her the smile she wanted and needed.

It sounds so simple, but there were a few obstacles we had to overcome to make Hayley’s smile dreams come true.

So here’s what we did:

She’d had previous dental work done that failed to meet her expectations.

Hayley had spacing issues, along with an uneven smile. Her trusted long-time family dentist was able to use dental bonding to fill the spaces.

But unfortunately:

Uneven coloring and maintenance of dental bonding weren’t enough to give Hayley her Hollywood dream smile. While her smile looked better, it wasn’t what she truly wanted.

Hayley wanted to know if porcelain veneers could truly transform her smile as quickly and effectively as she had heard with lasting results.

However, her dentist didn’t offer porcelain veneers. Through her research, Hayley found Benjamin Turnwald Dentistry in Schaumburg, IL.

She took the first step and booked a complimentary consultation to see how we could help fix her uneven smile.

Consultations allow us to dive deeply into every patient’s smile goals. We used her complimentary consultation and worked through her smile goals:

  • Coloring – a brighter, whiter smile
  • Spacing – normal spaced appearance
  • Length – natural, symmetrical bite

What Options Are There For Fixing an Uneven Smile?

Our expert doctors treat patients with complex dental problems and craft treatment plans unique to each patient – often offering multiple options, so we know they’ll leave happy and confident with their new beautiful smiles.

For Hayley, we created a couple of temp mockups to show what her smile could look like.


We discussed her likes and dislikes of each until we agreed on a design that met every single one of her new smile goals.

The solution:

We agreed she needed her eight upper front teeth restored with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers offered the versatility, longevity, and durability Hayley required to give the smile of her dreams.

But we didn’t stop there.

We never want a dental problem to turn into a financial problem, so we worked together to make her treatment affordable.
