DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN
A beautiful, healthy smile makes the first impression last. A beautiful smile will make you want to smile more, which in turn will bring you more happiness and success in life.
At our dental hospital, to come up with the perfect result, our prosthodontists will go through a detailed design process, known as digital smile design. Our doctor will first interview the patient to make sure we fully understand the patient’s wish. Some patients will want a Hollywood smile, while some patients only want to restore what they had in the past (a more natural look).
Doctor will take the impression of your jaw using either 3Shape Trios intraoral scanner, then study your case thoroughly using the smile design software. Doctor will come up with the and will recommend the best treatment for you.
SMILE DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Smile design takes into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips, and even your personality to develop your ideal smile. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customized according to your specific needs.
Dental Esthetics include the following components:
Tooth Color: Dark or discolored teeth may suggest an aged mouth. A beautiful smile comprises of bright, white teeth tends to a youthful appearance. Silver or amalgam fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-colored composite restorations, while teeth whitening can improve the color for stained or dulled teeth. Tooth color and shading are very important factors during our evaluation and preparation for various procedures (such as porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding and dental implants). Our prosthodontists are skilled at finding the right balance between providing you with a brighter, whiter smile and maintaining a natural tooth color.
Alignment and Spacing: Teeth that are crooked, overlapping or have gaps between can be straightened and aligned if necessary through orthodontics, and can also be improve with crowns/veneers.
Missing Teeth: One or more missing teeth can affect the appearance of your smile, your bite and increase the risk of tooth decay. Replacing missing tooth is an integral part of oral health and facial esthetics. Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants or bridges.
Harmony and Balance: Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded to improve appearance, and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to improve the overall smile.
Fuller Lips, Smile and Cheeks: An unusual or aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain smile design procedures, including orthodontics and/or oral maxillo-facial surgery.
A cosmetic dentist will work closely with you and other specialists to develop a treatment that can achieve exactly what you want for your smile makeover.
AESTHETIC COMPONENTS OF A SMILE MAKEOVER
There are several attributes for your teeth and smile that your prosthodontist will evaluate when planning your smile makeover. These include the following:
Tooth Length: Long teeth lend a youthful appearance. Aging produces wear and tear that often results in shorter teeth, and a gummy smile also can make teeth appear shorter. Smile design treatments for shorter teeth may include reshaping and lengthening the two front central teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers. If you have a gummy smile, your prosthodontist can modify the gum line and lengthen the appearance of the teeth using laser dentistry procedures.

Teeth lengthening can improve your overall facial appearance. For example, shapely, long, square teeth on a round-faced individual can provide a slimming effect.
Smile Line: The smile line is an imaginary line that follows the edges of your upper teeth from side to side, which ideally should be the same as the curve of your lower lip when you smile. This standard point of reference for smile makeovers may be used to help determine how long your new teeth should be.
Tooth Proportions: Your prosthodontist will examine your teeth to determine if they are in correct proportion with each other. Most people recognize a good-looking smile as one in which the two central front teeth are dominant and have a width-to-length ratio of 4-to-5. This proportion guides the length and width of other teeth in the esthetic zone so that the smile line appears balanced.
Tooth Texture and Characterization: prosthodontists performing smile makeovers are adapt at blending functionality and esthetics. A skilled prosthodontist can characterize your crowns or veneers to create a more feminine or a more masculine appearance, in addition to matching the look and feel of natural teeth.

Digital Smile Design (DSD)
DSD is a technical tool which is used to design and modify the smile of patients digitally.
At Worldwide hospital, we use the 3Shape Trios intraoral scanner to scan your jaws. Design software will analyze the patient’s dental and facial proportions. Based on these analysis, our doctor can get a better sense of the relationship between the lips, gums, and teeth, as well as how they work together to create the patient’s smile. Our doctor will then look at the digital library of various forms and shapes that can be placed over the tops of your teeth in the images and come up with a few different smile design options for you to choose from. This will allow the patients to see what their final result will look like before beginning treatment.
It’s important for you to communicate your wants and needs to your doctor so he/she can make adjustments accordingly. If requested, our doctor can create a mock-up and place portions of the model in your mouth temporarily to give you a better idea of what your teeth will look like as you speak and smile. Once the design is approved, doctor will send the file to our Lab in-house. Your crowns/veneers will be printed using our 3D printer and CAD/CAM technology, making the crown/veneer fabrication at our dental hospital a complete digitalized process. This ensures you are completely satisfied with your new smile.
