Sometimes teeth do not form properly.  In this case, this lateral incisor, commonly called a peg lateral, is too thin and misshapen.  A porcelain laminate was placed to correct the problem.  This thin sheet of porcelain is extremely durable and color stable, and many times lasts over twenty years.  Minimal tooth enamel is removed to make room for the laminate veneer as opposed to a crown.
