What is Smile Design?
Smile design is a digital preview of esthetic dental treatment. If you are interested in having esthetic treatment such as crowns or veneers done on your front teeth, it may be nerve-wracking to say yes to treatment without being confident that you'll love the result. Smile design allows us to show you the exact look of your front teeth before doing any irreversible procedures.
HOW DOES SMILE DESIGN WORK?
Smile design involves taking digital photos of your face and teeth as well as a digital impression of all of your teeth. These records take less than ten minutes. We then use software which allows us to combine the photos and digital impressions and design restorations that will enhance the beauty of your smile. You will receive a detailed digital preview of the design of the restorations and have the ability to provide feedback about what you like or don't like before we start treatment.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SMILE DESIGN?
Any patient who wants to have lab-made, esthetic dental restorations on their front teeth. This would include white zirconia or all ceramic crowns or veneers. Smile design can give you the confidence that you will love your smile before we start.
What happens during Smile Design?
The process starts with a consultation. We get to know you and your unique needs to see what type of work has to be done. We then schedule you to begin treatment according to your goals. Some of the more common procedures performed during smile design include dental implants, bonding, whitening, crowns, bridge work and orthodontic treatment. Depending on what needs to be done, you can expect to undergo treatment for anywhere from just a few weeks to several months.
