Cosmetic Process

Cosmetic dentistry is an art form, one that not only improves the aesthetics of your smile but also the health of your teeth and overall self esteem. Dr. Ridley has trained with some of the world's top cosmetic dentists. Her work is noted for its detail. Rather than importing cheaper products from overseas, our veneers and implants are carefully made here in the USA with high quality materials.

Consult & Mock Smile

Appointment

Dr. Ridley takes time to discuss your overall cosmetic goals and evaluates your smile and teeth to determine your ideal treatment. Once you and her agree on a goal,  impressions and photos are taken so that Dr. Ridley can  personally design a smile fit to your specific face and mouth.  She artistically waxes up ideal teeth shape, form, and contour from your models. She is then able to bring you in and you will be able to try on your "mock smile" to determine how you will like the final results. This temporary smile allows Dr. Ridley and the patient to communicate changes and expectations. 

Prep Appointment

Dr. Ridley then minimally shapes and removes only necessary tooth structure to allow enough room for the correct color and contour of the final porcelain material. Then your teeth are temporized with the same mock up template from Dr. Ridley's wax up. After wearing the temporary smile for about a week, you return to provide feedback on the look and fit of their veneers. Using this feedback, Dr Ridley will make a new mold before sending everything to a Master Ceramist.

Temporary smiles will be removed and  Dr. Ridley fits your permanent veneers.  You will return one or two days after this fitting to ensure things feel good and that your bite is correct.
