Smile Design Technologies

The world of dentistry continues to update and upgrade each form technology along with the procedures involved. Dentists know more now than they have ever known when it comes to preparing issues in the mouth for functionality, health, and aesthetics. In the past, dentists were only visited only one there was an issue involved with someone’s mouth or teeth. This meant that the dentist back then we’re only needed as post care to repair on issues that had already become quite bad. In today’s time, it is recommended to visit your dental professional every six months in order to prevent these issues so that a larger procedure doesn’t need to be performed at a later date. The dentist is now considered a preventative healthcare oral doctor as he or she can easily tell if an issue will start to arise before it actually does.

Aside from the health benefits, a cosmetic dentist can perform a number of procedures to give you the exact look that you have been dreaming about aesthetically. In the past, if the tooth goes missing the dentist will usually just replace it simply without necessarily looking at shape, size, or even color to match the rest of your teeth. Digital smile design is the modern way of performing a multipurpose conceptual protocol that provides a number of remarkable advantages than that of the previous ways.

What Exactly Is Digital Smile Design?

The whole point of a digital smile design dentist is to feel confident knowing that your teeth will look aesthetically pleasing not only in your mouth but will also complement the features on your face as well. The restorative enhancement process of your teeth will be designed by a number of tailored treatments that will customize the procedures to your specific smile. A DSD dentist looks at your smile as a canvas and will recommend a step-by- step treatment process combined with the patient’s desires and emotional needs to achieve the perfect look. A DSD dentist wants to create a smile that is natural, beautiful, and confident.

In the past, a dental lab would have created teeth without considering the size, shape, or color of where they might fit. There were no design aspects involved in replacing a tooth many years ago. This is why some patients have different sizes of teeth along with different shades of colors. These types of smiles were created with the no design involved, and therefore the teeth don’t look consistent.

The digital smile design dentist will look at the whole picture involved. This includes looking at the mouth structure, the job, the lips, nose, the eyes… well, the whole face! A DSD dentist will recommend recording a video of yourself about how you want your smile to look, this way the dentist can capture your personality and can see how your teeth look as well as think of ways of how they can look. From this, the dentist will create the ideal look of your teeth and smile that is perfect for your face.

The best part about having a digital smile design curated? The patient gets to see what they look like before any procedures take place! This means you will see a digital creation of your smile as well as how your smile will look in comparison to all of the features on your face. During this consultation, you can express any comments or concerns you may have before any treatment has begun. The dentist will also provide you a specific cost breakdown so that you, as the patient will know exactly how much this treatment will cost, with no surprises.

A digital smile design is usually created with multiple procedures involved to give you the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of. This form of dentistry may not be the best for someone who simply needs to replace one tooth but rather for a patient who has multiple issues with their teeth such as discoloration, separated teeth, chipped teeth, broken teeth, missing teeth, and much more.

This process will give you a completely new and stunning smile that will match your facial features perfectly. A DSD smile will expand your expectations and perfectly tailor each and every procedure and treatment along with every step along the way, to your custom smile design. Besides, everyone has a different smile and different teeth, so why should we treat them the same? It’s time to open your eyes and look into the world of digital smile design to see just how these dentists can curate and create a custom treatment plan that can take your smile to stunning new heights.

The whole concept of digital smile design is based on the analysis of every single patient’s facial features and dental proportions. It’s important to use every single feature involved in order to come up with a custom smile that matches the face to give the patients a warm and bright new smile. A DSD dentist will look at the relationship between your teeth to your facial features to your gums and everything else in between; this also includes how the person talks and how the patient shows emotion. The digital drawings before the procedure are carefully created so that the patient has an exact idea of what their smile will look like in comparison to their whole face.

The achievement of this type of aesthetic and functionality will always depend on who the dentist is and how well their team can communicate together to ensure a smile the patients longs for! Find the right dentist for you and talk about how digital smile design could be the best route for you.

What To Look For With Searching For A Cosmetic Dentist

Once you narrow down your search and have found the perfect cosmetic dentist for you, it is time to have the first consultation with that dentist. During this consultation, the dentist will perform a checkup and multiple x-rays to figure out exactly what the issues may be in your smile. During this consultation, you will also communicate with the dental professional what your goals are for your smile aesthetics.

Recommendations

Narrowing down your search for the best cosmetic dentist can be as easy as getting a few recommendations from trusted people. If you have family members or trusted friends who have had procedures cosmetically in the dental industry, they can recommend you to their dentists that they used for these treatments. You can feel better knowing that these dentists have already been trusted and tried by people you trust and love. Otherwise, if you do not have a recommendation, you can do your own research online by finding positive and negative reviews of local cosmetic dentists in your area. It can be easy to narrow down your searches simply by finding the most top rated cosmetic dentist in your area.

Education

When a dentist gets their license to practice, they are usually mostly trained for the standard dental procedures and not necessarily cosmetic dentistry. If a dentist wants to continue their education, then they must attend a few more years of schooling to focus their training on cosmetic dentistry. This is the same procedure for a dentist that wants to become an oral surgeon, You also want to find someone who continues their education by educating themselves and attending courses that update they’re learning as their career progresses. This is a great way to stay up-to- date on all of the new changes that the industry has to offer. You can always ask the dentist how they keep their education updated; it can be wise to stay away from those who don’t necessarily focus on this step.

Experience

When looking for the right cosmetic dentist, you may run into a few dentists that seem great on paper, and their price is right. However, their experience may be lacking. Be wary of the dentist’s who have only had a few years of professional experience in this industry. Not to say their work can’t be exceptional, however, you will feel more confident in opting for a professional who’s had at least 10 or 15 years of professional industry experience.
