Why a trial smile?
For many people, a new smile may include more than just changing the color and shape of their teeth, it may also include changing the position and length. This new position and length may require some getting used to and possibly some adjustments. For these reasons the doctors at New Smiles developed a procedure they termed the “trial smile”. For example, if your teeth have been worn or broken down to the point where your bite has been altered, a trial smile is a great way to transition back to a more youthful smile and ideal bite before any permanent changes are made.
The trial smile procedure begins with a consultation with one of the doctors at New Smiles. Impressions of your teeth are then taken and the proposed improvements are designed and then copied to your mouth using composite resin, gently bonded to your current teeth. You then take your new smile on a trial run. You can talk with it, eat with it, and show your friends and family what your new smile will look like! When we know that everything looks and functions perfectly, your new smile is then completed permanently.
