A Trial Smile is something that is unique to the patient and is the real secret behind our success. It is a “dress rehearsal” of how your veneers or new smile makeover will look. These “temporary” veneers or porcelain work will be designed to give you a very good idea of what the final teeth will look like.
This method gives you total control and predictability of your end result. Therefore, whenever a cosmetic smile treatment is being done you are fitted with a Trial Smile on your first treatment visit.
This is because we want to gives the patient an indication of what the final teeth will look like. However, the patient still has time to make changes before the final fitting of the porcelain work.
The Trial Smile is made of a very hard plastic material. It is handcrafted taking all the subtleties of aesthetics into account. This is why it is created in your mouth and not on a model of your teeth; so we can see exactly how the teeth should look in your mouth. Also we can check to see if we achieving the initial cosmetic goals we set out during the treatment planning stage.
The creation of a Trial Smile is a very critical stage when changing the smile in any way regardless of the number of teeth involved. The same principals are followed whether two teeth or a fuller smile of ten teeth is being considered.
Helps to communicate your perfect smile
In many instances, it is very difficult for a patient to communicate their cosmetic requirements since there is often no tangible way of explaining how they see things in their minds eye. The Trial Smile gives the patient a considerable amount of control of the final aesthetics. This is because they are able to see a creation of smile that is the best result as far as the dentist is concerned. The dentist will have created the trial smile based upon his or her evaluation and cosmetic analysis. This means that the final result of the Trial Smile will be very close to the correct cosmetic result providing something that the patient can easily review.
Subsequently, we will have an appointment for a Trial Smile Review to assess for any changes. Thereafter, if there are still changes you would like then we can integrate them into our work, thus creating your perfect smile.
