What Is Digital Smile Design (And How Does It Help?)

If you have chipped or worn teeth, are unhappy with the arrangement of your teeth or your smile just doesn’t feel right, a dental procedure could be the answer. But for most people, the idea of getting treatment arrives at the same roadblock. ‘What if I don’t like the new look?’, ‘Will it still look like me?’ ‘How will I know if I’ll be happy?’.

Digital Smile Design is a powerful new technology that can change all that. It does this by letting you actually see your amazing new results – long before your treatment even starts. And the best thing is, you can have a no obligation consultation to find out the exciting possibilities.

What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design is a way of showing you exactly what your new smile will look like before you decide to go ahead with a cosmetic dentistry procedure. It lets you dip your toe in the water to see precisely what your results will look like with the use of digital imaging technology.

This technology digitally creates a series of accurate pictures of how your smile will look after the dental procedure is complete. It is done using real images of your face and lets you experience how your new smile will look from the outside to make sure you’re happy with it.

The best part is that once you’ve seen the first image of your new smile, you will have the opportunity to make changes as you see fit. If you don’t like how your teeth look, simply make the adjustments alongside your dentist. The imaging will be adjusted for you to review again. It really does give you a chance to create the smile you’ve always dreamed about.

Digital smile design is similar to building a house. Just like with an architect, you can see the design of what your house will look like before any of the building starts. Just like you would change the width of hallways, or shift the size of a bedroom to suit your needs, so too can you refine the aesthetic of your own smile. And similar to building a house, you will see multiple revisions until you sign off on the one that really gets you excited.

Is Digital Smile Design Safe?

The process is fast, effective and completely pain-free. It’s also an enjoyable way to discover the possibilities and put a smile on your face before any treatment begins! Digital smile design is non-invasive and 100% safe, because there’s no drilling involved at all. Everything is done using photos to ensure you’re happy with the work before it commences.

There is no obligation at all to get a cosmetic treatment done to restore your beautiful smile after seeing the design. You might not like the results at all after seeing it in a digital image. However, if you like some of what you see, you can make all the adjustments necessary to restore your naturally beautiful smile. There are no surprises in the end, and you are guaranteed to get results to make you happy, confident and excited about what’s on the other side.

What is Involved?

This is how the process works:

  1. First, you will undertake a dental checkup so Dr Olstein and his team can assess your health and identify any issues you currently have. This is simply a way of understanding how your mouth is currently structured.
  2. During your checkup, the dental team will also take several photos around your mouth. These will then get sent off to a design laboratory who will generate a simulation of your new smile.
  3. The digital images are sent back to our clinic, and you have the opportunity to book an appointment to come in and analyse them. This is where you can make any alterations you like, which will then be sent off and received again for you to look over.
  4. When your preferred version is finalised, Dr Olstein and his team will then create a personalised treatment plan to bring your new smile to life.

So, if you’ve been thinking about restoring your smile back to its natural beauty, this could be the solution you’ve been waiting for. And with over 30 years of experience in modern professional dentistry, Dr George Olstein has the perfect team to make it happen.
