Digital Smile Design
What is Digital Smile Design?
Digital smile design is a new technology that incorporate computer software to help design shape, position and alignment of teeth according to patient’s face for communication between cosmetic dentist and patient. With traditional way, patient will not know new smile until the treatment has already started or the design is only shown in dental model which cannot correlate to the patient’s smile of face. So the problem is, sometimes, patient does not like the new smile or tooth shape after the treatment has already finished. With Digital smile design, patient will be able to see new teeth in the simulated picture or video before the treatment begins. Patients can discuss and comments what they like and don’t like with the design. It can then be corrected and adjusted until every party is satisfied before starting the treatment. This can ensure that the patient’s new smile will be according to the proposed plan.
What is the process for Digital Smile Design?
