An in-person consultation is a great option for a more in-depth meeting with Dr. Hales. During the in-office consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to get a Smile Test Drive by Dr. Hales. With the Smile Test Drive, Dr. Hales places a removable material over the teeth to show you in real-time the potential of your smile with veneers. The test drive smile can be worn for a few hours so you can truly “try before you buy.” The Smile Test Drive will give you the assurance you need to move forward with veneers with full confidence.
A 3D scan or impression (*for out-of-town patients) is created of your current smile. This serves as a guide for the design of your new smile with veneers. Dr. Hales begins the design consultation with the ceramists to create a wax model of your new smile. He communicates what changes you would like to see with your new smile, including your goals for the color, shape, and size of the veneers.
Your natural teeth are prepped for veneers by removing minimal tooth structure from the natural teeth. The goal is to remove the least amount of tooth structure needed to achieve the aesthetic goals for your smile. Molds are taken, and temporary veneers are placed. Temporary veneers are models of the final veneers. You wear the temporary veneers while the ceramist crafts the porcelain veneers.
Temporary veneers are removed. Porcelain veneers are bonded individually to each tooth to complete your smile transformation. Your bite is digitally scanned to ensure proper alignment and function of the teeth. Your new smile is also scanned for a night guard that you can wear at night while you sleep to provide additional protection to your veneers.
