smile makeover at desert smiles
Committing to a smile makeover is a major decision-emotionally and financially. At Desert Smiles, Phoenix Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Nathan Tenney never wants to proceed with cosmetic dentistry until you are comfortable with the expected outcome. Since some veneer and all crown procedures are irreversible we want to have your confidence prior and during treatment. Durathin veneers (Lumineers) and cosmetic dental bonding are normally reversible.
There are several ways to try before you buy. First and foremost is developing a personal one to one relationship. Every case is unique as is every guest we are privileged to treat in the Glendale, Scottsdale, and Phoenix, Arizona area.
We will begin with models of your teeth along with several photographs of your teeth, smile, face and profile. After we have had time to evaluate and analyze this information, we will meet with you. We will not only share our finding, but come to an understanding of your goals, dreams and expectations. This is where the design process is formulated.
We will show you actual cases we have successfully treated, similar to yours. In most cases, we will have an aesthetic computer image created from the photos of your teeth and face. It is a great way to see what your mouth and smile can look like.
We welcome any significant others who will be involved in the decision making at the consultation(s). We also give you a CD to take home with much of the information to review and share. Previous patients are available to talk with about their experiences in cosmetic and sedation dentistry.
In some cases we will prepare a wax up of proposed treatment. We do this to insure we can accomplish what your goal entails and it will also give you another visual perspective.
We can also do a mock-up with direct resin (bonding). We apply it directly to your teeth and this allows you to see yourself with the changes, take photos and get feedback.
When you proceed with porcelain veneers, Durathin veneers or porcelain crowns, you will wear tooth colored temporaries, which closely look and function like the real thing. It is a critical step to get results you are really happy with. You get to live with your new teeth for three weeks and see what you like and do not like. This allows us to make the appropriate changes to insure your satisfaction.
These steps are critical as we at Desert Smiles strive to provide the finest in cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry, sedation dentistry, and sleep apnea treatments in the Glendale, Peoria, and Phoenix Arizona areas. Contact us for a free smile makeover evaluation today.
