When Dr. Robert Thein creates a new smile for you, the guarantee is that, when he tries it in, you’ll love it, and if you don’t love it, he will send it back to the ceramist to remake it until you do love it.
He will give you several opportunities, at every step of the fabrication process, to review the smile and make sure you love it. Then, just before bonding it on, he will place it on your teeth temporarily so that you can get one final look at it before it is bonded on permanently. Once it is bonded on, changes are limited to shortening the teeth or rounding the corners—additions, lengthening, or color changes aren’t possible.
First, Dr. Thein will share with you his smile style book which is filled with photographs and drawings of smile styles. You can pick a smile you like, or just use the book as a way to discuss your expectations with Dr. Thein.
Then, he will create a computer simulation for you. This will put the smile design you choose with your face, and will help you see if you really want the design and the color you’ve chosen. Many people like to show this computer simulation to friends and family to get their opinions.
Next, Dr. Thein will create a wax-up of this design, which you will be able to examine. From the wax-up, he has a template made that he will use to create a temporary smile for you. You will get to wear this temporary smile while your permanent teeth are made. If there is anything you don’t like about the temporaries, he will change them to suite your wishes.
Lastly, the final teeth will be patterned after the temporaries. And then, when they come back from the laboratory, you will have a chance to try them on and get an accurate picture of what you will look like with your new smile. If, by chance, you are unhappy, they will be sent back to the laboratory for a redo until you are satisfied with a natural looking new smile.
Here is a sample case of one of a patients who with her new smile:
Jo Ann came into our office. While she had a happy disposition, she didn’t want to smile because she was embarrassed about her teeth.
Here’s what they looked like. She has unattractive porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns on her lateral incisors – those are the ones right next to the very front teeth. Many dentists think they look good enough because they’re white. But people notice the black line at the gumline, and they’re opaque.
Dr. Thein did a dental makeover using the latest ceramic restorations to give her a natural smile. Jo Ann’s comment at the end of treatment was: “I am extremely pleased with my results and would recommend Dr. Thein to all who ask.”That’s what everyone says. When you have full input into the entire process, the way Dr. Thein does it, you’re of course going to be very pleased with the result.
