The value of a great confident smile is priceless and is desired by all.
When a patient wishes to attain that smile but is cynical to undertake the treatment procedure because he/she is not being able to visualize the final treatment outcome, is when a Digital smile Designing tool comes into play.
Prior to the advent of digital dentistry, patients needed to just trust their cosmetic dentist to create a smile they would adore. But, now with state of the art technology through digital smile design makeover, it’s possible for the patient to have direct contribution into designing their smile.
What is Digital Smile Designing ?
It is a virtual treatment planning protocol supporting the dental aesthetic treatment. Digital smile designing software for dental clinics analyses patient’s facial and dental structures and then uses digital technology to create a custom designed smile. This helps to preview your final outcome of the treatment before committing to the smile makeover treatment.
HOW IS DIGITAL SMILE DESIGNING DONE?
1. Consultation – The cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth, listen to your preferences and expectations and takes a Digital impression.
2. Exhaustive Digital Photography – The beginning of designing your smile starts with clicking great photos of you by our professional photographers in the exclusive digital photo studio. We make sure to capture the images of the teeth in different profiles with which post treatments can be designed according to the patient’s objectives.
3-Video Analysis – Photographs provide us with the static movements of teeth, lips & smile. So, to capture the dynamic movements a short video clip is necessary for us to see how your smile relates to your face in normal speech.
4 -Smile Design Analysis – We put all the gathered information into our DSD software to Design changes to your smile along with taking into consideration of your preferences.
5-Mock up–This final 3D design is then translated to our master technicians who will contribute to the blueprint of your smile.It gives a preview of how your final smile will look. At this stage, any changes can be made about tooth length, shape and colour.
Once the final smile designs are agreed, you will be informed about the treatment duration, procedure and cost of the treatment.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM A DIGITAL SMILE DESIGNING PROCEDURE?
If not all, but many of the end results of the cosmetic treatments can be assessed with this DSD softwares. Some of the treatments where digital smile designing is routinely used are:
