About Digital Smile Design Expertise
Many patients come in to discuss improving their smile. Our goal is to take our time to listen and learn what the goals are for their new smile. We go over what they want to improve (a brighter or broader smile) and take a series of photos to take an in depth look at their teeth. At that appointment, we also take a 3-D scan of their teeth to design the new smile. How does this process work? Pam is a long time patient of our practice that wanted to discuss improving her smile. Her goals are to have a whiter and more full smile.
The 3-D design is tried on in the mouth using a temporary material. This allows Pam to see what the new smile will look like as well as the ability to make any changes to the initial design. For Pam, this is exactly what she is looking for. She loved the improvement of the shape and size and plans to make the final veneers brighter than what is pictured. In her case, we used Invisalign to improve the alignment of her teeth and make the reshaping of her teeth as minimal as possible.
