Posted by: Dr. Sirakian     Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

A lot goes into creating the perfect smile. Every patient has expectations of what they want to look like, how they want their smile to look; shape, color, length, and at Sirakian Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry; they keep all of those desires in mind when creating a smile that is perfect for you.

Goal number one for the team at Sirakian Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry is to meet the needs of the patient. The way that they do that is by following a course of action that has produced countless beautiful smiles in the past.

First, they set up an interview. The team wants to sit down and find out what you want, what your expectations are, and if they can effectively meet your needs. Once they have a good idea of what you want in your smile, they explain what your smile is supposed to look like. Then they go in depth, taking photos, videos, and studying your facial proportions to make sure that your smile will fit perfectly into your face. They also take into account gender, age, ethnicity, and most importantly, what the patient wants.

After doing a thorough analysis of your smile, the team works together to construct your perfect smile. With the patient in mind, a wax-up, otherwise known as a blueprint, is created. This wax mock-up is designed purely for the patient to be able to see what the final result will look like. It enables the patient to analyze if they’re comfortable with the aesthetics of their new smile and if they will be able to accept the changes.

Once the patient has approved the blueprint, the skilled team at Sirakian Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry goes to work to create their masterpiece, your smile. Like creating a work of art, they use extreme detail and precision to create the smile of your dreams.
