Q: What is a Smile Design?
A: A Smile Design is our way of packaging the services that allow us to look at each personï¿½s unique dental needs and take the steps to give you the best smile possible. The results are often dramatic and life-changing.
Q: Who can benefit from a Smile Design:
A: Smile. No, really smile. Ask yourself what do you see? Are your teeth chipped, discolored, or crooked? Are you embarrassed to smile?
A Smile Design maybe a solution to correct:
- • Crooked teeth
- • Mis-shapen teeth
- • Discolored or stained teeth
- • Teeth that are too small or large
- • Unwanted or uneven spaces
- • Worn or chipped teeth
The next step, if you decide that you are ready to get started, is to create the blueprint for your Smile Design. To create your unique Smile Design, Dr. Anshu will take digital pictures and diagnostic study models. The photos are used to assess the smile line and the relationship of the smile with facial features. We also assess the color composition of the teeth and the texture of teeth. The study models are used to prepare a wax up. This is the blueprint for the Smile Design.
We determine and register how your teeth meet in function and chewing. This will help us to avoid any interference in the final Smile Design that could prove disastrous. We must determine how your jaw aligned with your skull, for instance, is the upper jaw at a slant in relation to the rest of the face? This way we can avoid having teeth longer on one side and shorter on the other. All of this information is communicated with the ceramist who will use the blueprint Dr. Anshu has created to duplicate your permanent porcelain restorations. The ceramist technician is so important that we have contracted with one of the best in the world.
The crowning touch in most cases is gum contouring . It allows Dr. Anshu to contour the gum line to create longer teeth with proper gum symmetry.
