Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Aesthetics
What is a Smile Design?
The treatment of all aesthetic deficiencies with the mouth, teeth, and jaw area is called smile design.
[It is possible to foresee the result in digital smile design. Thanks to the 3D imaging technology, a special computer program, and the mock-up method, a rehearsal is performed first. This way, unpleasant surprises are avoided.]
How is Digital Design Performed?
Photos of the face, chin, and mouth of the person are taken, videotaped, and transferred to a special computer program that offers 3D analysis. In this program, a smile design is created in three dimensions.
[In creating the digital plan, the teeth model’s harmony with the lip lines, the effect of the face and jaw structure on the design are evaluated.]
It is not sufficient to see the smile design in the digital environment. The final decision is made after the mock-up. Printing out the digital plan for rehearsal in the mouth is called the mock-up. The tooth structure is obtained using a silicone mold, and wax teeth are placed while the design is transferred to this model.
[The aesthetic dentist inspects the final details on the mock-up and makes the necessary corrections.]
