You may have cavities, stained teeth, or even major tooth misalignment, but there's always a solution that can meet your needs. There are many wonders that a cosmetic dentist can work for patients that may surprise you. Major issues with dental health can be effectively treated, and even the most serious dental stain can be bleached and dealt with.
In order to achieve such great results, however, it's often necessary for a dentist to do pre-planning and pre-visualization. This is the world of advanced smile design, and we'd like to take a few minutes to look into it right now.
Smile design refers to the ability of a dentist to create a preview of what dental care treatment will be like after it is all said and done. The smile design process is twofold in that it can help patients understand how dramatic a dental procedure's results will be and it helps a dentist determine how he or she can best meet the needs of a patient.
Smile design today involves the use of computer imaging to help preview the results of care. The first step will be to take digital pictures of the patient's mouth. The computer software will be able to use these digital photos to create previews of dental treatment. The accuracy of these digital approximations of dental treatment is rather stunning.
This advanced computer technology is also helpful for orthodontic care, allowing dentists to present a preview of final results as well as determine the right amount of tension to be applied to the teeth in order to shift them into proper position.
One important use of smile design involves smile makeover treatment. A smile makeover involves a combination of many aesthetic procedures that help improve the overall appearance of the smile. Your smile makeover may involve any of the following treatment options:
Full mouth reconstructions are similar to smile makeovers, though there is added emphasis on the overall health and wellness of the mouth. Your full mouth reconstructions may involve any of the following treatment options:
Whether you undergo a smile makeover or a full mouth reconstruction, you can expect great results and improved dental wellness. And thanks to smile design technology, you can have a preview of these results and understand just why they would be beneficial to you. This is ultimately a sound way for a dentist to inspire confidence in his or her patients as they make decisions about dental care.
