First impressions have a lot to do with smile. And if you are not confident about it, you might constantly find ways to avoid using it. But, what if we tell you that such a need might won’t arrive. Fortunately, Digital Smile Design today have made it possible for you to create a smile that you will love to flash every now and then.
With technologies like Digital Smile Design (DSD) at Dentakay, you can also witness the potential smile you could achieve before even committing to any kind of dental treatment plans.
Speaking of Digital Smile Design, a form of artificial intelligence, it has taken the world of Aesthetic Dentistry by storm. Being a high-tech procedure, it allows dental practices to be far more efficient and predictable.
What Is Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design refers to a technical tool that incorporates the use of CAD and CAM technologies to revamp the look of your smile. It gives the patient a visual idea of how their smile can look by presenting before them a digital mockup before the treatment physically begins. Not only does it gives the patient an idea, but also a better perspective to the dentist about what must be done for accurate results.
This a very important practice for us at Dentakay since, we are deeply dedicated to providing our patients satisfactory results by making sure they get to have the smile of their dreams. Digital Smile Designs simplifies the process for us and allows us to give our patients a smile they feel confident to flash.
This brings us to the second point, which is communication between your dentist and you. This tool makes communication a breeeze as instead of relying on hope, our experts at Dentakay can show you your future smile. This gives you the opportunity to make comments or recommend any changes or modifications you feel will give you a better smile.
How Does It Work?
Firstly, our highly well-trained Digital Smile Design providers at Dentakay capture photographs using an intraoral scanner, connected to Digital Smile Design software. We make sure that the inside of your mouth is clealy captured.
Next up we use a camera to compile a set of videos and pictures of your face from various angles and under several facial expressions. This is to analyze the overall look of your smile to evaluate the way your gums interact with your lips and teeth.
Subsequently, 3D models can be crafted to predict the look of the smile without having you undergoing any invasive procedure. Once there is a mock-up, the treatment can commence.
Digital Smile Design and Hollywood Smile
At Dentakay, we perform Digital Smile Design before putting The Hollywood Smile procedure in action. This is to evaluate and rehearse the potential, modified look of the patent’s smile for an accurate final outcome.
Will the proposed modification to your smile befit your facial features? Does it look natural? Is it in alignment with the patient’s demands? All of these are crucial questions and something Digital Smile Design could address.
DSD VS. Digital Imaging
Digital imaging is common across dental clinics but in essence it doesn’t provide the same predictability as DSD. It doesn’t visually communicate the outcome to patients in the same degree. Likewise, it doesn’t take into considerations the smallest details of your smile or its relationship with your facial features.
To sum up, it lacks clarity in comparison to Digital Smile Design.
