Who doesn’t love trying before buying—clothes, cars, even fostering a pet. At times, it seems daunting making a decision, if only I could… As a cosmetic dentist, I hear you (and borrowing from my dear Dr. Susan Hollar -fabulous cosmetic dentist in Texas), I offer my patients a trial smile. This simulation is ideal when adding contour, length to one or more teeth. From an impression, I’ll make a hollow model (with the changes you want) you’ll then slip over your teeth and get a snapshot as to how your cosmetic changes will look. Once your excitement calms, we can then chat about the solution that best suits your goals—composite veneers or porcelain.
