Morristown, NJ–According to AACD survey statistics, 99.7 percent of adults believe a smile is an important social asset. Cosmetic dental issues such as misshapen, crooked, or missing teeth can negatively impact both the appearance of one’s smile, as well as their overall confidence; however, there are a variety of dental procedures available to address these concerns. Dr. Edward Romano offers several smile makeover options at their New Jersey cosmetic dentistry practice through the combination of advanced dental technology and minimally invasive techniques to help patients attain the beautiful smile they have always wanted.
Dr. Romano formulates customized smile makeover designs for every patient, as he says an individual approach to each case can help them achieve optimal results. Dr. Romano says each patient has different needs and there are various aspects of dentistry involved in every smile makeover. The first step of the process is an initial consultation, where patients can preview different smile results from advanced computer imaging technology. The doctor focuses on what he can create within their patients’ smiles to provide the most natural-looking results. Some of the factors the doctor assesses in the smile makeover process include the patient’s face shape, and the color and size of the teeth. After the patient determines how they want their smile to look, the doctors take impressions of their teeth to produce a full diagnostic wax-up. Prior to completion of the final wax-up, the doctors create a temporary wax-up to evaluate it for color, shape and aesthetics and ensure it satisfies the patient’s expectations.
Dr. Romano says his priority is to meet patients’ expectations and give them something they are proud of when the procedure is complete. “We address patients’ concerns and let them know exactly what needs to happen on each tooth. Additionally, we show them examples from previous cases to aid them in their final selection.” He adds that the conservative approach to smile makeovers is important because once something is removed from the mouth, it cannot be put back, so patients should feel comfortable with the procedures that will be performed.
The team at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey makes every effort to assure optimal results for their patients by taking the time to understand each patient’s individual needs. Additionally, Dr. Romano stresses the importance of maintaining proper oral hygiene in order to preserve the long-lasting effects of smile makeovers and other procedures such as porcelain veneers or dental implants. Dr. Romano says by using state-of-the-art technology and utilizing the proper skills needed for each customized procedure, he is able to generate smiles that patients deserve.
