In the past, patients have had to trust their dentist to tell them how a cosmetic dental procedure will appear afterwards. Sure, they could look at before and after photos of other people. But the question always was — what will the changes look like on my unique smile and face? Digital Smile Design makes the patient an active participant in the planning of proposed improvements to their smile.
Dr. Marshall’s Digital Smile Design creates a highly detailed cosmetic diagnosis of areas that could be improved with cosmetic procedures. Then she creates impressions and digital images to show you exactly how those changes will look on your face and smile. From there, she makes adjustments based on what you want. There are no surprises with Digital Smile Design, and that’s good for everyone.
Here are the steps involved in the Digital Smile Design process:
Step 1 — We take a series of six digital photos of your teeth, face, and mouth from different angles, such as straight on with the cheeks and lips retracted, in profile with mouth closed and smiling, etc.
Step 2 — Dr. Marshall reviews your photos with you. Then she proposes cosmetic changes that could be made, and can demonstrate them utilizing the system’s imaging software.
Step 3 — Once you agree on the cosmetic changes you’d like, a full digital simulation of your smile after your proposed treatments is rendered.
Step 4 — We take full impressions of your teeth to be used to translate the digital design into a physical model.
Step 5 — We create a resin model to see how your modeled treatments fit your teeth and your needs.
