Every smile transformation begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kosdon to establish the cosmetic concerns you would like to correct and outline your ideal smile goals. A comprehensive dental examination also takes place, during which Dr. Kosdon assesses the condition of your oral health, captures digital scans of your dental structures, and determines whether you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
Next, Dr. Kosdon analyzes every aspect of your smile’s aesthetics, your facial features, and your overall appearance in order to develop a highly personalized treatment plan that delivers an outstanding final result. Using the principles of the Golden Proportion, specific facial measurements, and his artistry as guides, Dr. Kosdon integrates the many elements of your appearance into a cohesive analysis that helps determine the best way to enhance your smile with porcelain veneers.
Based on the analysis of your smile and facial composition, Dr. Kosdon uses his expertise to determine the right tooth color, shape, size, alignment, and length needed to create your enhanced smile. With 3D-scans, digital photography, state-of-the-art software, and his keen eye, he develops a custom smile design suited to your specifications and preferences. You will have the opportunity to preview what your proposed smile will look like and provide feedback to fine-tune the final design.
Using your custom smile design, temporary veneers are crafted and placed once your teeth have been prepared. The temporary “trial smile”—as it is often called—gives you the opportunity to try out your new smile for a few weeks to see if you are totally satisfied with the appearance.
If you have any changes you would like to make to your veneers based on your experience with the trial smile, Dr. Kosdon can make adjustments to the design until you are satisfied with the outcome. When the final design for the permanent veneers has been agreed upon, Dr. Kosdon will send it over to the dental lab for fabrication of the final porcelain veneers.
When your veneers have been created and arrive from the lab, the temporaries are removed and your final porcelain veneers are checked for proper fit and appearance. Small adjustments can be made by Dr. Kosdon, if necessary. When everything looks as it should, the final veneers are bonded to the teeth to complete your smile!
