Dr. Rothwell considers her work a failure unless you absolutely love your new smile. She is so serious about this fact that they offer a beautiful smile guarantee on every case of porcelain veneers. From the first smile design consultation to the steps that lead up to the final application, Dr. Rothwell have built in several opportunities for you to see exactly what your new smile will look like.
Love Your New Smile
Here’s how it works. Dr. Rothwell will meet with you and talk about the many things that go into a successful smile design; the exact shape and color of your teeth, how your new look will match your face shape and facial features, as well as the personality you want to portray. She may take photos, models, facebow, x-rays, and/or ask for photo examples of what you are looking for. Dr. Rothwell will take the time to have a thorough discussion with you about what you like and don’t like. She can also show you photos of work she has done that is similar to the look you are going for.
Once your smile design has been determined, she will create a wax-up model of your case. This will give you the first opportunity to see the proposed smile design. Then, based on this model, a set of temporary veneers are made for you to try on and wear until your customized veneers return from the lab. If you see something that doesn’t look or feel right, simply tell Dr. Rothwell so she can re-work it until you are satisfied.
When we receive the veneers back from the laboratory, this will be the final opportunity to see your new smile before your it is permanently bonded. It is quite rare that patients have any reservations at this final try-in stage. But if for some reason you are unsure about something, we can send it back to the laboratory until it is perfect. When you have given the final approval, Dr. Rothwell will bond the veneers into place. That is how we arrive at your beautiful new smile.
