Summer is here! The kids are out of school, the days are longer, and beach vacations are on the horizon. Time seems to slow down a little in the summer. If you're a parent of young kids, maybe you're counting down the days until school starts again. If your kids are grown and gone, maybe you're anticipating a relaxing vacation. Regardless of your situation, you're likely to encounter lots of weddings, barbecues, birthday parties, reunions and the like. This means social situations where you're posing for pictures, talking to friends and relatives you haven't seen in a while, or maybe even meeting new friends. If your smile isn't up to par, you may be left feeling less than confident going into these social gatherings.
A new smile with porcelain veneers is the quickest, most effective way to transform your smile. Luckily, your new smile will last far beyond this summer. Our patients that get their cosmetic dentistry work done at our office say "I wish I hadn't waited so long!" Getting porcelain veneers is a solution that will provide you with a natural-looking smile and a huge boost of confidence.
With our personalized cosmetic dentistry process, you'll not only have porcelain veneers created to your liking, you won't spend all your sunny summer days stuck in the dental chair. Setting up a complimentary consultation is the first step, where you'll meet our treatment coordinator, Beni, as well as Dr. Carlson. You will discuss what you like and don't like about your current smile, what you hope for in your new smile, and any concerns you may have along the way. Since your smile will be completely customized, you will be able to choose the color, shape, and size of your veneers. If needed, your records appointment (photos, impressions, etc.) can be combined with your consultation to limit the number of appointments needed to complete your cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Dr. Carlson will then create a wax-up, or model, of your teeth as they will look with porcelain veneers. You'll have an opportunity to give your input before you move forward with treatment. Once you're happy with the model of your smile, Dr. Carlson will place your temporary veneers. Temporary porcelain veneers give you a chance to "take your smile around the block" to be sure that you're happy with the color, size, and shape. Go ahead — spend time in the mirror, get your spouse's opinion, take a few selfies — whatever you have to do to make sure you are pleased with the way your veneers look! So many of our patients tell us that they already feel a change in their overall self-confidence just with their temporary veneers.
Once you're happy with your temporaries, the next step in our cosmetic dentistry process is bonding your permanent veneers. This is the part where you get to show you off your new smile! You can feel self-assured walking into any social gathering this summer (and beyond!) with cosmetic dentistry treatment done at our office.
