Cosmetic dentistry is not a field or specialty of dentistry. It is not a procedure. Cosmetic dentistry is the dentist using the best knowledge, science, experience, technology, and artistry that is available in the profession today and coordinating with a team of providers and ceramist to meet the patient’s desires and expectations.”Richard Vermillion, DDS
Custom Smile Design and Planning
The smile design process combines the best of high technology and artistry deliver you a beautiful smile. Understanding your concerns and desired outcome is the first step in the process. A complete examination, photographs, x-rays, traditional models and digital models are the records needed to understand the health of your teeth and gums. With this understanding of where you are we can diagnose the dental and functional problems that have caused you to not like your smile.
Some things to ask yourself and what we talk about as part of the smile design process are:
- Is the position of my teeth appropriate? Do I need Invisalign?
- Are my teeth the same length and of similar proportions?
- Are my gums even and symmetrical?
- Am I happy with the color of my teeth? How white would I like them?
- How many old dental restorations are showing?
- What teeth show when I smile? When I talk?
Our Instagram page shows much of the behind the scenes of how we delivered the dream smiles to many of our patients. Some smiles take years to develop and some only just several visits. What is important is that it is customized for you and your situation.
