Have you ever wanted to change you smile, but have no idea how? If so, Smile Design is your answer.
It may be a slight stain, some crooked or overlapping teeth, swollen gums, a gap, maybe a couple of chips or rough edges, or perhaps some teeth are out of proportion with the rest of your mouth. Even a small imperfection can detract from an otherwise radiant smile.
Smile Design is a great way to show you what your smile could look like. Many dentists can generate pictures of how they ‘think’ your smile could look, however changing the facial and dental features is very different . Sometimes less is more – The most desirable cosmetic results are achieved through subtle corrections , for example , with dental contouring , the teeth can be radically redesigned for the best result. The size and the shape of the teeth would be in proportion with the size and the bone structure of the face.
Smile Design Process
Smile Design is non-invasive and involves no treatment other than a simple impression and consists of just two appointments. It is created by taking impressions of your teeth along with photographs of how your smile currently look. This is carried out at the first appointment.
Prior to your second appointment, a solid cast is made up of your teeth using the impressions that were originally taken. That cast is then used to create a 3D wax model of what your teeth could potentially look like. This ‘mockup’ is then used to create a good quality set of composite, temporary veneers or crowns in the shape of your ‘new smile’, looking completely natural.
At your second appointment, the temporary veneers or crowns will be fitted in order for you to see and feel the difference. The temporary ‘new smile’ can be worn for a week or so if needed in order to show family and friends as a second opinion and essentially allowing you to ‘test-drive’ your new smile. New photographs will then be taken to give you an easy comparison of a before and after.
You are now in a great position to be able to decide whether you want to go ahead with the treatment to make your new smile permanent! This is an accurate, predictable and completely reversible way of designing a new shape , form and shade for your new set of teeth
These temporaries allow you to “test drive” the smile design for a period of time,The “trial smile” is actually the prototype for the final shape and is created by our experienced cosmetic dentist; Dr. Kaviani based on her vision of the type of smile that will make you look your very best, and it’s made following the wishes and concerns expressed by you.
A very important concept is that by wearing the “trial smile” first, you are given ample opportunity to accept or change key components in the design of the smile, especially the colour, shape of the individual teeth, length of the teeth, etc.
Discoloured and worn front teeth are two of the telltale signs of ageing. If the teeth are otherwise in relatively good health, Porcelain restorations such as porcelain veneers can be an excellent treatment for providing a younger look. Your bite may be the deciding factor if veneers or ceramic crowns are the best solution.
