Smile design is a recent but essential practice in cosmetic dentistry. It’s become a very important discipline ever since the value of having a beautiful smile increased.
Not long ago, right when cosmetic dentistry began growing, advanced technologies were sparse. So, the smiles that were designed were very repetitive. Since then, there have been numerous modifications and advancements in the field and smile design is the most recent of them all.
What is Smile Design?
Smile design is a practice that helps dentists design your unique and customized smile par excellence. It thoroughly and comprehensively evaluates your smile to give you an exceptional smile makeover. It uses high-tech software and advanced imaging tools to capture the smallest details of your mouth. The artificial intelligence model uses an intraoral scanner to capture your movements from within your mouth.
This computer-assisted scanner takes impressions of your mouth and sends them to a machine that logs them in. But you don’t want a structure that fits and is practical. You want something that takes it to the next level.
And that’s exactly what digital smile design does, it’s personalizing your smile in a process that involves us filming you in various expressions from various angles. The software then designs your smile and together with the impressions obtained from the intraoral scanner, design your perfect smile.
Is Digital Smile Design Important?
Digital smile design is a very essential practice if you don’t want your smile to be mediocre. Because to bring out your natural beauty, we’ll need to factor everything about you. The way you move your facial muscles when talking, laughing, frowning, and so on. During the procedure, we’ll use artificial intelligence along with scanners and film you as you talk.
It only takes a few minutes, but the technology will show you what your new smile will look like before starting treatment. You don’t have to wait until the end, you get to see exactly what you’ll look like after treatment. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your results with your dentist to make any changes you see fit.
What Does Smile Design Take into Consideration?
Smile design takes into consideration your natural movement for the most part. But it also practices an approach of outside-in where we evaluate your facial structures as well during smile design.
1- Lip Mobility and Symmetry
Your lips are the frames of your smile and their role is to set the boundaries for it. As a result, they have a great aesthetic impact on the overall shape of the smile.
The midline of your lips should align with the midline of your teeth as well as the midline of your face. It’s important to take into consideration symmetry during smile design.
Likewise, we have to fathom your natural lip movements, how they fold and respond to facial expressions to build a smile that works with your natural movement.
2- Lip Shape Upon Rest
How your lips curve when resting and how many teeth naturally show are all very essential aspects to consider in smile design. It helps us understand what your smile is missing and how it works to craft a smile that corrects all the issues while also looking extremely natural.
