Smile Test Drive™

Home » Smile Test Drive™

Have you been thinking about upgrading or repairing your smile? Have you been on the fence because you weren’t sure if you’d be satisfied with the end result after you went through with it? 

With Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio, you can test out your new smile before you go through the permanent process with our “smile test drives.” You can go into your cosmetic dentistry procedure with full confidence that you’ll love the end results because you’ve already seen them!

Try It Before You Buy It

Just like you’d never purchase a car that you hadn’t seen and test driven in person, we believe that you shouldn’t make a big investment on a cosmetic procedure for your smile without testing the product yourself.  

At Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio, we offer a smile test drive program. If you are considering getting veneers or a similar cosmetic procedure done, Dr. Camacho can give you a temporary dental bonding to imitate what your finished veneers would look like. You can “test drive” your new smile at home for 1–2 days, then come back in to decide if you want the permanent change.

Test Drive Features

This test drive has all the following benefits to give you peace of mind with your purchase:

  • This temporary bonding is completely safe and reversible—it doesn’t remove or change any tooth structure. 
  • The effects will last anywhere from 24–48 hours, depending on how careful you are—eating sticky or tough foods during your “test drive” will make them wear off more quickly. 
  • You can easily remove them yourself when you want to—take advantage of the full 48 hours, or remove them after 2 hours if you’d like.

The Smile Test Drive - Reshaping The World Of Dentistry!

Dr. Edward Camacho- Smile Test Drive

So not only did I learn to do smile virtual consults, I became part of a group of smile virtual dentists. We do things a little bit differently and one of the techniques that I learned to do, which for me has proven to be one of the most valuable communication tools, is something called a smile test drive. It is one thing for me to show people, before and after pictures of cases that I have done, and improvements that I have made on other people’s teeth on other people’s smiles. Well now with a smile test drive what we do, what I have learnt to do and now use as frequently as I can – a patient comes in, I temporarily place on top of their teeth some tooth coloured material I shape it up, I establish good alignment across the front, I establish the bite to be leveled with the eyes. I develop a uniform colour and most importantly I develop symmetry in the smile.

This is temporary, the patient – I set the patient up and I hand them the mirror and it is one thing to see on other people’s teeth and other people’s smile what your smile could look like, it is totally different to see what your teeth actually could look like on your smile, when you look into a mirror. It is something that lasts a day or two, they wear it home they show their spouse, they again get to experience in advance and there is no, there is no obligation at this point in the patient’s standpoint okay. There is no obligation to move forward. This is what I can do for you, this is what it will look like – go home drive it around the block a few times, like when you are buying a car and see if you like it! See if it hits your target of what you want your teeth to look like!
So a smile test drive is something that only this group of smile virtual cosmetic dentists, are capable of providing that particular service but it has proven to be an invaluable communication tool to be able to utilize that technique for people.
