Smile Design

Smile design is a cosmetic dentistry technique that corrects flaws in the teeth and restores their look and health. It incorporates a specialized treatment and long-lasting effects for a smile that is straighter, brighter, and seems natural.

Smile design utilizes digital technology in the creation of dental prostheses. It is a minimally invasive computer-controlled therapy that may also be performed for implant diagnostics and surgery. Applying software, the dentist is able to develop and produce specialized dental braces with higher-quality materials, resulting in cheaper production costs and quicker production periods.


Candidates of Smile Design


Some individuals have congenital beautiful tooth structure, although in others the formation may not be in the correct location. Smile design is recommended for those with two or more broken or crooked teeth. If the patients have any of the following conditions, a smile makeover is likely necessary:


  • Teeth that are stacked onto one another,
  • Defective and discolored crowns,
  • Carious teeth,
  • Overcrowding of the teeth,
  • Gums with a discoloration,
  • Extreme tooth rot,
  • Spaces between the teeth.


Process of Smile Design


Identifying a experienced clinic and dentist who offers digital smile design services is the initial step. The subsequent sequence of events is as follows.

On the initial appointment with the dentist, smile makeover process is explained. The dentist and the patient analyze the patients' specific goals for this therapy. This consultation is essential because the dentist learns about the patients needs and they are informed of all elements of the Digital Smile Design (DSD) procedure.


Depending on these, it may involve a mix of the following procedures:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Dental crowns
  • Bridges
  • Orthodontic treatments
  • Teeth whitening
  • Bonding
  • Gingival contouring


The next stage is to collect cosmetic and structural data about the patients' teeth. From various perspectives, high-quality digital images and brief videos of the patients speaking and smiling are captured. This information is required by the 3D Smile Design program.

The Digital Smile Design program is a useful instrument. The information acquired in the second stage is entered into analysis software. The program then displays viable solutions based on the patients' wants. These potential consequences are depicted visually in 3D.

The patients are presented with 3D models for evaluation. They may either approve the design or request modifications. The dentist will only advance with the procedure if he/she gets approve for the operation.

The final phase is repair or alignment of the teeth. Smile design costs and duration varies per patient. During the process, utmost attention is used. Later, patients are instructed on necessary post-operative care.


Advantages of Smile Design


The most recent technology simply improves the procedure's explanability through enhanced visual perception. The patients gain a participatory understanding of the whole process.

The dread connected with dental procedures is diminished when the patient is able to comprehend the operation, see the outcome, and make an informed decision prior to the treatment. The technique of digital smile design inspires patients.

As the outcome can be accurately predicted in advance, cosmetic surgery may be conducted with relative ease. The intended goal acts as the guiding principle. Patients and dentists collaborate to build a smile. This prevents confusion or disappointment on the part of them.
