Does it seem like your dentist is speaking another language? Maybe it’s all the schooling. Maybe it’s because they think about teeth all the time. In this video, Dr. Geen tells us how he likes to communicate with his patients and the best way for you to talk to your dentist.
It’s very important for us to hear how you as the patient see the smile and what it is that have brought you to our office so that we can make some improvement for you. Then we will point out any areas that we think could be improved and often we end up seeing eye-to-eye on these different matters. These are things that we get to do all the time and we see every day so it’s certainly
Another process that we’ll sometimes use is a smile preview and that’s an intraoral markup where we actually sit the patient down. You don’t have to be numb. Nothing’s being done to your teeth. We’re just laying a little bit of material over the surfaces of the teeth to get some idea as to how we might want to change the smile and the proportions of the mouth, the teeth within them. We will do this for a few minutes, take a few photographs of the patient and you actually get to right there and then see how the smile could be improved.
That’s something we treat you in certain cases. It tends to lend itself to certain types of situations or deficiencies in the smile and it’s a lot of fun.
