We smile when we’re happy – it’s part of who we are! Feeling confident about our teeth is a vital part of feeling good. Smile Design treatment is a great way of achieving a smile that you feel proud of, so that you can show the whole world you’re happy!
Smile Design allows patients to assess their teeth and create a plan to achieve their perfect look. The initial stage includes taking a full assessment of your current teeth to understand which areas you would like to improve. Several digital images are taken of your teeth and run through a computer imaging system, which allows us to digitally reconstruct your teeth. Once we have this image, we go about the designing stage.
Designing your perfect smile is a collaborative process where we listen to the changes you wish to make and suggest the treatments that would make this happen. Once we have a fully formed idea of what you would like to change about your smile, we take these ideas and suggestions and use them to adapt the digital image on-screen. This process involves shaping the computerised image in order to design the perfect smile you’re looking for!
Firstly, we will invite you to a full assessment appointment, where we work with you to understand what you don’t like about your smile and how you wish to change it. This will involve a discussion and a physical dental assessment, as well as taking several digital images of your mouth. These images will then be uploaded onto a computer imaging system, which allow us to create an on-screen version of your perfect smile. As a part of creating your smile, we will discuss the treatment options available to make your dream smile a reality!
Depending on how much work your teeth need, we will talk through a treatment plan to make this happen. This may be as simple as a couple non-invasive processes, or could involve several surgical appointments. However, we will always make sure you are comfortable with the treatment plan from the start, as our patient’s comfort is at the heart of what we do.
Designing your own smile is the perfect way of creating the exact appearance that you want for your teeth. As well as giving you a renewed confidence in your appearance, this treatment can also solve a number of major dental issues which can affect the function of your teeth, which include:
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
Treating these dental issues is just as important as treating cosmetic issues, because the perfect smile should always be a healthy smile!
