Digital Smile Makeover
Imagine you could take a photo of your smile, then Photoshop your teeth to see the smile you’ve always wanted before you’ve ever had any dental work! Well, now you can design your dream smile with the amazing Digital Smile Makeover at Alderley Dental.
What Exactly Is Digital Smile Makeover?
Digital Smile Makeover uses the latest in dental technology and is changing the way we help patients achieve their desired smile. The Digital Smile Makeover process begins by taking images of your smile to assess your teeth and the way they relate to your face. These images are used to design your smile makeover – changing the arrangement of your teeth, their shape and colour. After you’ve made any modifications you want to your smile design, the dentist can use these conceptual images to plan the cosmetic dentistry procedures you’ll need to achieve your new smile.
How Does it Work?
1. Discuss your ideal smile and take images
The cosmetic dentist will take impressions of your teeth; this will give them an understanding of your smile and how Digital Smile Makeover can help you achieve your ideal smile transformation. During your initial Digital Smile Makeover consultation, you and your dentist will talk about the smile you want and how Digital Smile Makeover can help you achieve this.
We’ll take digital photos, videos and 3-D scans of your mouth. This will give us an understanding of your smile in motion and emotion – the way your teeth, gums, lips and face all work together. We’ll also take impressions of your teeth.
2. Design your smile
Digital Smile Makeover will help achieve the best dental makeover. These images are sent to specialists, who put them into a Digital Smile Makeover computer program which designs a smile for you, making suggestions of which cosmetic alterations will help achieve it.
Once you approve your 2-D smile design, a dental technician makes a 3-D model in the form of a flexible rubber mock-up.
3. Test-drive your Digital Smile Makeover
This is the exciting part! Now you can come in and finally see what your smile could look like – just pop the rubber mock-up over your teeth and try it out in the mirror!
Then you can talk to your dentist about any changes you’d like to make.
4. Decide to go ahead with your Digital Smile Makeover
Digital Smile Makeover offers cosmetic dentistry options for achieving your ideal smile. At this point, you can choose to proceed or not – it’s up to you.
If it’s ‘yes’, you and your dentist can talk about your treatment plan – that is, which cosmetic dentistry options you can choose to achieve your ideal smile, as well as your budget.
5. Begin treatment plan
The options can include one or several of these: veneers, crowns, tooth whitening, dental implants, tooth-coloured fillings, inlays and onlays, or dentures.
The result? The smile you’ve always wanted – that you helped to create!
