When it comes to cosmetic dentistry and transforming your smile, the fear of the unknown can cause anxiety and hold you back from taking the first step toward a smile that you feel more confident and more yourself with.
Until very recently, cosmetic dentistry was led by your dentist. Sure, you could explain to your dentist the shape, size and color you wanted your teeth, the problems you had with your current smile, and show your dentist pictures of smiles that you hoped to emulate, but until your cosmetic journey was over, you weren’t sure what your smile would look like.
While we love to save that element of excitement and surprise for when you see your new smile for the first time, our goal is to help you feel eager, comfortable and confident. Thanks to new dental technology, you can now see exactly what your smile will look like before we begin.
A New Smile, Designed by You
Here at our cosmetic dental office, cosmetic dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban leaves the cosmetic choices up to you. That doesn’t mean attempting to explain the look you’re hoping to achieve – that means sitting down and actually designing it.
With Digital Smile Design (DSD), Dr. Marzban will translate the smile you have in your mind onto an imaging system. The DSD system places those 3D teeth into an image of your face, so you know exactly how you’ll look. View digital videos of you smiling, laughing and talking with your new smile, check out how your new teeth change your overall appearance, and get excited about what’s to come.
And, if you realize you haven’t been precise in your explanation or you decide you don’t like how the shape of your future teeth look in your mouth, Dr. Marzban can redesign your look in real time. We won’t get started working on your teeth until you’re completely satisfied with what you see. With the DSD model, your smile will look so natural that most people won’t even know you’ve gotten a smile makeover.
What Tools Does the Digital Smile Design Use?
Your smile is one of a kind, and your digitally designed smile will be, too. That means every digitally designed smile employs different tools to achieve the look you want. If you’re unhappy solely with the color and shape of your teeth, for example, your journey will look different from someone who wants to change the alignment and spacing in their mouth. However, most digitally designed smiles use a combination of the following:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental crowns
- Teeth whitening
- Tooth bonding
- Dental implants
