Chapter Eleven: The Trial Smile | New York, NY

When you’re in the market to buy something new, having a sample of what you’re buying is always a great way to be sure it’s what you really want. After all, you don’t buy a car without giving it a test drive? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have the same options when it comes to surgery? There is – dental surgery. With today’s technology, you can now test drive your smile before you buy. It’s called a trail smile.

Temporaries, or provisionals, is the template created so a patient can see a preview of their options, and there are plenty. Color, brightness, size, shape and texture can all be realized without a single ounce of pain or inconvenience. It is a great way to show patients that may be leery about a smile makeover, just what to expect. If they don’t like a certain aspect, we change it. We are in the search of designing YOUR perfect smile.

For the first level of the trial smile, we create an intraoral mock-up. Materials are sculpted to create a visual for the patient. Resin is used to visualize the length and color of the teeth and take measurements. The second level is the shaping and sculpting of each tooth. This is where the patient can give their thoughts on the way their teeth look. The third and final level is for those patients with more difficult cases, like flared teeth. It is an easier way to adjust the tooth’s angle without moving the entire root.

A trial smile is a great way for a patient looking for a smile makeover to experience what this transformation feels like in their everyday life.

Chapter Ten: The Smile Lift | New York, NY

We all fear the aging process. No one wants to get older, much less look older. But, sadly, time waits for no man. As we age, our face begins to change. Our teeth begin to discolor and shift, the muscles in our face begin to lose its youthful elasticity. And as our face begins to sag, a phenomenon called facial collapse, oftentimes causing us to feel self-conscious.

When this happens, where is the first place we turn? Yes, the cosmetic surgeon. We want face-lifts and augmentations to various areas of our faces, in the hopes that we miraculously hold onto the last days of our youths. The problem is, when your procedure doesn’t turn out the way you wanted, it’s difficult to repair the damage.

This chapter discusses another option to the cosmetic surgery – a smile lift. It is likely that you’ve never heard of this dental procedure, but it can make a 50-year old person look ten years younger with little invasive techniques or pain. Sound impossible? It’s time to make an appointment with your dental professional.

During this consultation, you will get together and design your smile. Size and color of teeth, the shape, everything is now in your hands. Afterwards you will receive what is called a trial smile as a template. This way you can take a “test drive” with your new smile. When all is perfect, your smile is created and there you have it – the smile you’ve always wanted, all yours for at least the next eight years!
