New York, NY – Dr. Michael Kosdon, a New York cosmetic dentist, recently completed an extreme smile makeover for a female patient at his cosmetic dentistry practice. After a three-step process and two office visits, Dr. Kosdon says this Westchester, NY patient has dramatically improved her appearance and regained the confidence she needed to show off her smile. “The patient was really unhappy and insecure about the appearance of her teeth. She explained that she was always very self-conscious with the discoloration and was embarrassed to smile.”
According to Dr. Kosdon, this patient wanted a permanent solution for her dark and discolored teeth. At his New York cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Kosdon met with his patient for the initial consultation and discussed her smile makeover goals. After a number of attempts with both at-home and in-office teeth whitening products with other practices, the patient says it came down to her desire for a brand new smile that would increase her confidence and self-esteem.
Dr. Kosdon recommended a combination of porcelain veneers for her upper and lower front teeth, as well as EMAX crowns on her posterior molars. The patient was presented with a digital image of what she could expect following the treatment plan Dr. Kosdon had proposed, which included a full set of X-rays to ensure her teeth were healthy and could support the smile makeover process. The treatment was administered in three stages over two office visits, as follows:
- Diagnostic wax-up: simulation of her new smile with temporary replacement teeth
- Preparation appointment: patient’s teeth are reshaped to make room for the veneers
- Smile Reveal: temporaries are removed, teeth are disinfected, and porcelain veneers are permanently cemented
Now that the patient’s procedure is complete, Dr. Kosdon says he is thoroughly pleased with the results. “This was an extreme makeover. The patient’s appearance dramatically improved after undergoing the cosmetic dentistry procedure. She instantly looks 10-15 years younger and isn’t afraid to show off her smile anymore.” The patient adds that Dr. Kosdon helped her achieve an important and long-awaited goal: “Important because now I can smile without feeling embarrassed, and long awaited because I searched long and hard for a dentist in whom I felt a strong sense of trust and confidence.”
