This is an important appointment since it allows you to take full control of how you would like the final outcome of your teeth to look like. The Trial Smile is a way of testing out a new appearance of your teeth to see if they suit you and whether this is the type of smile you had in mind before you started your cosmetic journey.
The Trial Smile is fitted on your first treatment appointment after your examination and treatment planning session. You will then get another appointment usually a week later to discuss your thoughts. This is called a Trial Smile Review appointment.
The final fit of your porcelain veneers will only occur once you have confirmed that you like yor new smile the way we have designed it. If you don’t like it we can make the necessary changes until you give us the go ahead.
Hence, we only create smile makeovers or veneers based upon your unique requirements.
There are several things we look at in a Trial Smile Review:
We look at whether the aesthetics is mirroring your desired cosmetic result. We can make any necessary changes so by the time we come to the final fit of the porcelain veneers that are exactly how you perceived your new smile to be. We look at position of the teeth, shape, form, symmetry and colour. We also want to make sure that the new smile suits your facial form.
We look at whether your bite and functioning of your teeth is harmonious without any teeth having more pressure on them than others. We are trying to create a stable bite without interferences from teeth in the wrong position. In some treatment plans we aim not to change or alter your original bite at all when creating a new smile. However in other circumstances we may need to re-establish a different more stable bite especially if this has been lost over the years due to tooth loss or tooth wear.
We look at the dynamics of how you chew. We want your mouth to feel comfortable and for you to be able to chew with your teeth in a better way.
