The Trial Smile Experience

Description:
Have you ever thought that if your patients only knew how much a smile makeover could enhance their faces, they would be interested in cosmetic dentistry? The Trial Smile Experience is an interactive exercise that demonstrates the facial improvement that your patients can expect to achieve, while building trust and eliminating their fear of the unknown. In addition, the model of the trial smile allows the clinician to communicate the esthetically driven aspects of the treatment plan to their technician and specialists. This tool is sure to create more cosmetic dentistry in your practice, and you will learn: • When the Trial Smile Experience is most effective • How to use digital photography for co-discovery with your patients • Techniques for performing an effective clinical mock up (trial smile) • How to use the mounted trial smile model and digital images to communicate with your technician and specialists

Thank you for your questions. Susan is teaching at the Pankey Institute this week. She uses the trial smile for both composite and porcelain cases. The final restorations in this case including the canine were done in composite.

I really enjoyed your presentation, Dr. Hollar! When you reestablished the canine guidance on the female patient in this video did you do so with composite or a bonded porcelain restoration? Do you have more thoughts on the materials to use in this situation? Thank you!

Hi Ajay, when the diastema is large, more teeth should be restored in order to maintain a pleasing height to width ratio of the restored teeth. In other words, keep in mind that beautiful central are usually approximately 11 mm long and 8.5 mm wide, and try to stay in a comparable range. Also, laterals usually have about 1/3 less width that centrals. Proportions are important.

Hi Ruchika, The steps between the trial smile and the final restorations could be several more webinars! I became better at creating trial smiles by using composite everyday in my prctice, for tempoaries, esthetic bonding, trial smiles, etc. I began to practice sculpting in my early years with wax while working on diagnostic waxups. Thanks for your interest!

Thank you Maurice, I have not used digital smile design. I prefer the direct method because I feel that the lip boundries vary when speaking and smiling, and can be so different from one patient to another. Thanks again for your interest! Susan
