Test Drive your smile makeover with digital smile design

Why a Smile Test Drive is a Crucial Part of Your Smile Makeover

If you’re considering a smile makeover, you’ve probably had some concerns about getting fake-looking veneers. So how can you be sure your new smile will harmonize with your face, look natural and fit your personality? Test drive it!

As a Digital Smile Design clinic, we offer a unique experience to our patients which includes a Smile Test Drive — without any commitment to treatment. 


What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is an innovative treatment planning protocol that allows us to create a completely personalized experience and unique smile design for each patient. The DSD Concept is considered the most modern, patient-centered design approach available.

One of the greatest benefits of choosing a DSD Clinic is getting to preview your new smile before it’s even finished. There’s no crossing your fingers and hoping for the best here. You will co-design your smile with your dentist, which means that if you don’t like how something looks, we change it. Ultimately, your wants and needs will determine the end results.


Smile Test Drive

You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a test drive. Why should it be any different when you’re investing in a smile makeover? 

During the first appointment, we gather all the information we need to plan your smile design, and the second appointment is where the fun begins! At this visit, you will have your Smile Test Drive and you will physically try in a mock-up of your new smile!

We want you to feel confident in your treatment by seeing and feeling how you will look with end result (and providing feedback) before treatment begins.


What will happen at the second appointment?


The second appointment is far from a typical trip to the dentist. We will start in the clinic to insert your mockup and then the fun begins! 


Now that you can see and feel what you will look like with your new smile, it’s time for photos! If you’re a little camera shy, don’t worry! Our team our will make the experience fun and relaxed.


After your photoshoot, you will meet with Dr. Cardenas in our consultation room to go over your treatment plan. You will get all the information you need to make a confident decision about your treatment. 

How to prepare for your second appointment

All you need to do is wear a comfortable outfit that makes you feel fabulous, put on your favorite lipstick (and maybe waterproof mascara) and prepare to be wowed!
