Trial Smile Design
The trial smile is a provisional temporary smile that is placed on prepared teeth. It allows you to “test-drive” your new smile before you commit to making long-term changes.
This extra stage in the smile design process ensures that the outcome of your dental treatment will meet your expectations.
Our dentists go to great lengths to ensure that the Trial Smile is exactly what the patient has requested. Contact us if you have any questions.
The first step is to take impressions of your teeth and gums
Using these images of your mouth, your dentist can recommend the most appropriate treatment - or combination of treatments - for you to get the smile you want.
The trial smile also allows for you to make small changes after the initial smile design treatment planning. This occurs at a review appointment, often a week after the trial smile has been placed.
The trial smile is customised and hand-crafted by using dental composite materials and has a very realistic look.
The items to review include the shape of teeth, the size of teeth, the axial inclination of teeth, the shape of the embrasures, the position of the reflective line angles, the reflective or deflective properties of the teeth, the golden proportion of teeth and the width of the buccal corridor.
The trial smile allows our patients the time to decide if their new smile is exactly how they want it before the final placement of the veneers or implants. Any adjustments can be made quickly and easily.
Once the patient is satisfied with the look then digital photographs, impressions, and measurements are made of the trial smile and sent to the ceramist to help guide the look of the final smile.
The shade of the desired smile is also finalised at this visit. The sequence of the process is shown in the photos below - the similarity in shape between the trial smile and the final smile can be seen here.
The Trial Smile is an important step in the process of creating your unique Perfect Smile.
The final function and aesthetics of the smile makeover are confirmed only after this step is completed. Find out more.
