A confident smile is a good smile

What is Smile Design and why people do it?

You may not realize it, but your smile is the first thing that people notice about you. For many people who are self-conscious about their smile, it can be tough to laugh, smile, meet new people, or even go out in public. For others, they may just want that perfect smile that they have always dreamed of.

Over the years that we have been doing cosmetic dentistry and Smile Design, we have seen the major differences in personality and boosts in confidence in patients that have walked out of our office with a new smile.

What is Smile Design?

Smile design is cosmetic dentistry that uses crowns, bridges, and veneers to create your dream smile.

What can Smile Design fix?

Overall, Smile Design can create a smile that you love. One that gives you confidence. Smile Design can correct everything from minor imperfections, such as whiteness or brightness, to more substantial issues like missing or disproportional teeth.

What is the Smile Design process?

The Smile Design process ensures that you end up with the right smile for you.

  • – Discuss expectations and your dream smile. Here you meet with the dentist or a restorative hygienist to discuss what you like and dislike about your smile.
  • – Impressions and wax-up. After your initial meeting, impressions are taken so that the lab can create a wax model of what your final smile will look like.
  • – Teeth preparation. Your next appointment is for preparing your teeth for your new smile. This will include shaping to make room for the veneers, crown, or bridge. During this appointment, we also take another impression that is sent to the lab to make sure that the smile that they create fits perfectly into your mouth.
  • – Test-drive your smile. A temporary acrylic version of your smile is created so that you can take it for a ‘test-drive’.
  • – Cementing. Once the lab has created the final version of your new smile, we book an appointment with you to cement and secure it to your existing teeth.
  • – Caring for your new smile. Once you have your new smile, we provide you with all the tricks and tools to keep it clean.

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK ! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!

OUR NEW HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOL:

  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Sincerely,
Your Dental Team
