What is a Trial Smile?

Aug 23, 2019

A Trial Smile is a process we like to use prior to doing veneers to make sure each patient gets exactly what they want with their smile. It removes the hesitation of not knowing the final results of cosmetic dentistry. A Trial Smile is a kind of a test-run with temporary veneers to help someone see what they would look like with permanent veneers. Once we have created something that you love, Dr. Heaton will duplicate that shape, size, and color into the final porcelain veneers.

What is a Trial Smile?

Trial Smile Procedure

This process typically takes 30-45 minutes and can usually be done with your initial consultation, however, Please inform us if you would like to have your trial smile with your initial consultation with our cosmetic dentist Dr. James Heaton at Smiles of Chandler. See above for contact info. Dr. Heaton temporarily places a tooth-colored composite material on your tooth and gently bonds it to your teeth in a way that allows it to be removed later. An impression of trial teeth is taken during your initial consultation to help make the permanent veneers. You can take a picture of your trial smile to show it to your family, friends, and relatives.

Trial smiles are important for the dentist as well, this is because it helps in planning your smile makeover to be ideal for your bite, but also the shape, size, and color you desire for the final veneers

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
