Cosmetic dentist Dr. Eshom starts each cosmetic consultation asking his patients how they want their smile to change. “It is an important part of the cosmetic dentistry process,” says Dr. Eshom, “to help guide our patients with discussion of dental options and education, so that they get the smile they want to see each morning.”
Virginia, having prior dental experience, knew exactly what she wanted when she scheduled her cosmetic dentistry appointment with Dr. Eshom. With old cosmetic dentistry work, Virginia wanted to change the bulky, square look of her dental porcelain veneers with natural, feminine porcelain veneers. Once permanently bonded, the process of removing dental porcelain veneers requires creating a notch in the porcelain and then “popping” the dental veneer off the tooth. When removed, the old dental porcelain veneers can no longer be used and a new set of porcelain veneers must be made. For Virginia, the old, bulky dental porcelain veneers were quickly discarded for slender, feminine looking dental porcelain veneers. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Eshom also reduced the thickness of the porcelain veneer to bring Virginia’s smile into alignment with her molars. The natural, feminine look of Virginia’s dental veneers were the perfect addition to her already award winning looks. Later in the year, Virginia won Mrs. San Diego County!
