Glendale Cosmetic Dentist Beautiful Smile Guarantee
We hear many stories of people who have smile makeovers from other dentists who are greatly disappointed with their results. That won’t happen with Dr. Thein, because he goes through many steps to make sure that you love your smile.
He starts with a smile design book with photographs of various smiles. He uses this to discuss with you the smile design you want.
Using your input, along with Dr. Thein’s recommendations for you based on your face and personality, he has a computerized mock-up made of your photograph, showing how you will look with your new smile. You can show this photograph to family and friends, if you want their input. If you love the look that he has created for you, he moves forward.
The next step is that he creates that design for you on models of your teeth. If you still like how that mock-up looks, he uses it to create a template that serves as a guide for your final smile design.
During your preparation appointment, this template is used to create a temporary smile makeover that you wear while your case is with Dr. Thein’s master ceramist. This is the semi-final test to see if you really love the design. If you don’t, modifications are made until you do.
Finally, the case goes to the master ceramist, who creates your smile in porcelain. Dr. Thein uses the same team of ceramists that have created smiles for many Hollywood celebrities. The final test is the try-in, where you will try in the actual restorations you will be wearing. If you don’t love the final result, it goes back to the ceramist for modification or re-do, until you do love it.
Why does Dr. Thein go through all this trouble? Because he is a true cosmetic dentist and an artist. Dentists, as a rule, are very technician-oriented and detail-oriented. They love to fix teeth, and they usually view a smile makeover as merely fixing a smile. Dr. Thein, however, is an artist who understands that as a cosmetic dentist, his job is to create your perfect smile. Like all art, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And in the case of cosmetic dentistry, the beholder is you. The goal is to have you love your smile so that you are confident and eager to show it off.
Frequent Questions about Cosmetic Dentistry
What can be done if I have stained or discolored teeth?
If you have stained or discolored teeth, but otherwise like your smile the way it is, all you may need are whitening procedures to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Today’s whitening procedures are a safe, easy and effective way to brighten and whiten your smile.
What can be done if I have excessive or uneven gums?
Excessive or uneven gums can be corrected with cosmetic surgery (a gum lift) resulting in a more even and attractive smile.
What can be done if I have missing teeth?
Missing teeth can be replaced with predictable results using fixed bridges or dental implants.
Teeth that are chipped, cracked or worn can be perfectly restored with ultra-thin, specially made laminates or ultra-thin tooth-colored veneers. Veneers are thin shells that are laid onto the teeth and bonded to the surface. Veneers can hide cracks, chips and gaps. With veneers in place patients can dramatically change their teeth color, size, shape and length, while closing gaps between teeth. You can expect straighter, whiter and more even looking teeth that are very natural looking.
What can be done if I have crooked or crowded teeth?
Crooked or crowded teeth can often be corrected with cosmetic dental restorations and/or orthodontic tooth movement. This can lighten, reshape, and realign existing teeth, creating a more healthy and vibrant smile.
What can be done if I have old and unsightly fillings?
Old and unsightly fillings can now be replaced with esthetic looking filling materials, such as porcelain fillings or crowns that have the strength and durability comparable to that of silver fillings but look natural. They can actually help restore some strength to the tooth, unlike silver fillings. Given proper care, these materials can last several decades, and may last a lifetime.
What about cost?
Cosmetic dentistry costs vary from individual to individual and are based on different conditions. After your first examination, Dr. Thein will accurately assess your dental health and can better answer your questions. We understand your concerns. Many patients in our office have the same concerns.
