Our approach to creating your beautiful new smile
Photos are taken to help in the planning of your new smile.
Treatment plans can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and goals. Below is our general approach to smile makeovers.
Planning your new smile
Treatment begins with thorough diagnostics, including digital X-rays and intraoral and extraoral photos of your smile.
Before and after smile gallery
You will have the opportunity to look at our before and after pictures of previous patients to help you determine how you want your new smile to look.
Impressions and study model
We will take an impression of your teeth to make a study model of your smile. We will mount this model on a device called an articulator, which simulates biting motions, to make sure that your teeth are well aligned and the bite is correct. For more extensive cosmetic cases, we will have the lab create a model of what your final smile will look like. This is known as a “wax-up,” and it is made out of tooth-colored wax. The doctor will use the wax-up to make sure you’re happy with the proposed final look before treatment begins.
The doctor will prepare your teeth and take impressions that will be used by the lab to create your final restoration. The doctor will then place a temporary restoration that you will wear while the lab is manufacturing your final restoration.
The lab will fabricate the restoration within two weeks. When we receive it at our office, the doctor will place your final restoration.
Same-Day Veneers and Crowns
We offer same-day veneers to patients getting multiple veneers. The final veneers will be designed and created in our office and placed by the doctor all in one day. One-visit crowns are available at our Poway office.
Procedures for creating your beautiful smile
Our doctors have a variety of tools at their disposal for smile makeovers. These include:
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain fixed to the front surfaces of your teeth. Our doctors use them to permanently whiten teeth, close gaps, change the shape of teeth and even straighten mildly crooked teeth.
Dental bonding is a tooth-colored composite resin material used to fix minor cosmetic issues such as chipped teeth or gaps between the teeth. It is a more economical, faster and more conservative option than veneers, although it is not as long-lasting.
Tooth-colored fillings are an aesthetic, healthier alternative to metal fillings.
This procedure utilizes a precise, minimally invasive soft tissue laser to gently reshape an uneven gum line or fix a gummy smile.
