In the Cumming area, our experienced dentist at Inspiring Smiles has perfected the skills needed to provide our patients with great results. Our patients have seen first-hand the life-changing possibility of a smile makeover.
Procedure for a Smile Makeover
The doctor, at Inspiring Smiles located in Cumming GA, will begin by taking x-rays to evaluate the relationship of your smile with your facial structure and assess the color of your teeth, and their texture. The doctor will make an impression of your teeth and fill it with plaster to form a duplicate model. The wax is shaped to the exact proportions detailing the outcome. These sculpted wax-ups are transferred in the mouth as acrylic temporaries to evaluate them and see what changes, if any, are necessary. The patient will even have the opportunity to review the actual veneers on their teeth. Next, the dentist will then determine how your teeth meet in function and chewing. Completing this process can help avoid any problems in the final product that could prove troublesome. Finally, all of the information is forwarded to our professional dental lab that will craft the final restoration. Once the relationship between the restoration and the facial soft tissues are achieved, improvements in beauty can be expected to follow.
What Do I Care for My Smile Makeover?
At Inspiring Smiles, we instruct our patients on how to maintain their smile makeover. First, we remind them that a non-abrasive fluoride is strongly recommended over abrasive toothpaste. Abrasive toothpaste can dull the polish and shine of your restoration. Flossing is also recommended because it removes food particles and plaque from your teeth, which will protect them from future tooth decay. Finally, we ask patients to refrain from using a product that contains alcohol as it can reduce the bond between your restorations and your teeth. Our staff prefers our patients use an alcohol-free mouthwash instead. Cosmetic dental restorations can last you a long time depending on how well you take care of them.
