Dr. Kosdon’s in-depth consultation process is key to achieving success with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, ultimately helping him deliver the results you desire. As we are all unique and have different views of what we consider beautiful, Dr. Kosdon spends a lot of time getting to know you and learning about your personality during the initial phase of the consultation. The aim at this stage is to establish the cosmetic concerns you would like to correct and outline your ideal smile goals.
Dr. Kosdon also performs a comprehensive dental examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth and captures digital scans of your dental structures. This helps him to determine whether you are a candidate for porcelain veneers and if porcelain veneers are the best option for achieving your goals.
Next, Dr. Kosdon performs an aesthetic analysis of your smile, facial features, and overall appearance. This helps him in the process of developing a highly personalized treatment plan that can help you achieve your most beautiful smile. Dr. Kosdon’s work is guided by detailed facial measurements, the principles of the Golden Proportion, and his artistic instincts in order to achieve a cohesive analysis.
With the results of your smile analysis in hand, Dr. Kosdon uses 3D-scans, digital photography, and state-of-the-art software to create your new smile design. Through this process he is able to digitally adjust the color, shape, size, alignment, and length of the teeth to create your enhanced smile. Your custom smile design is suited to your specifications and preferences. You will preview and provide feedback about your proposed smile as Dr. Kosdon fine-tunes the final design.
Next, temporary veneers are crafted using your new smile design. Your teeth are first prepared by removing a small amount of enamel, and then the temporaries are placed. This temporary “trial smile” can be worn for a few weeks. This process allows you to try out your new smile and determine whether or not you’d like to make any changes to your final veneers.
Adjustments to your veneers can be made based on your trial smile experience. Dr. Kosdon will make these changes directly to the design. When you are completely satisfied with the design for your permanent veneers, Dr. Kosdon will send it to the dental lab and your veneers will be crafted.
When your permanent veneers arrive from the lab, you will come in to have the temporaries removed and your final veneers placed. Each new veneer is checked for a proper fit and appearance. If necessary, Dr. Kosdon can make small adjustments on the spot. In the final step, your porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth and your smile is complete!
