Vina will soon have 8 new reasons to smile. Each of the 8 teeth that are visible when she smiles will be included in her extreme smile makeover treatment plan by trained cosmetic dentist, Dr. San Mahara at Downtown Nanaimo Dental Group.
“I’ve been having trouble with my front teeth for several years now, and when I smile I’m careful not to smile too big” says Vina. The crowns have fallen and created an uneven gum line and a dark space between the gums and the crowns. “I know this looks like something is stuck there –even though there isn’t,” Vina adds.
Vina has already had an initial smile makeover consultation with Dr. Mahara where Dr. Mahara explained the treatment plan options. At a second appointment, impressions were taken to have the waxed up models of the new crowns constructed by a master lab technician. Part of Dr. Mahara’s smile makeover process includes using highly trained lab technicians to make the crowns.
“The crowns need to fit the patient perfectly –their face, mouth and even their personality are considered. These teeth will look life-like,” says Dr. Mahara.
Meanwhile Vina is seeing the waxed up models of her new teeth for the first time today. She describes them as, “beautiful,” and her excitement is evident.
“The wax up modelling process is excellent,” says Dr. Mahara, “it allows the patient to see what the crowns will look like and give us feedback that we can incorporate in the final product.”
Dr. Mahara studied and mastered the smile make over treatment process at the world famous post-doctoral dental school, the Las Vegas Institute.
“Patients tend to continually repair their teeth not knowing their options,” says Dr. Mahara. “I also give my patients the option for a smile makeover which addresses the root causes of the problems and at the same time significantly improves the appearance of their smile,” he adds. Dr. Mahara’s cosmetic dentistry training gives him the vision and the tools to do this.
For Vina, the smile makeover means new freedom and renewed confidence. “I’m going to have a big smile on my face every day,” says Vina. In her work as an Esthetician and Spa Technician, her smile makeover will go a long way to show her confidence and inspire confidence in her service.
Stay tuned for a post in December following Vina’s smile makeover to see her results.
