Beginning Steps of A Smile Design


The first stage of the smile design would be making an appointment at the office for a smile design consult. The first and the most important subject we will discuss is what your expectations are. Usually, we ask you questions such as what you want to change about your smile. The following questions are examples: 1.What are you dissatisfied with about your teeth? 2. Do you have missing teeth? 3. Do you have worn down teeth? 4. Do you have crooked teeth? 5. Is the shape of your teeth normal in appearance? (long, short ,wide, narrow, small, large, chip or crooked). We get very detailed about what you want to have done. After we understand your goals, we will outline a plan you will understand.

The next step would be taking photographs and x-rays which will help us and the dental lab to fabricate the choice of material we will use. We will take impressions to create models and craft a blueprint for your custom smile design. The Dr’s will consult with each other (Drs. Capps, Bowman & Padgett) at Cosmetic Dentistry Greenville NC to discuss and plan a smile design for you. We will create temporary restorations that give you the chance to see what you will look like before the final restoration are completed. When we complete the treatment you will have natural looking crowns or veneers that are crafted with light, shadow, form and symmetry of a tooth. This is an actual patient of our practice.

You will be actively involve with this whole process and design of this smile design!!!! We will listen to your feedback so that you can walk out of our office with a smile design that you created and love.
