Digital Imaging for Cosmetic Dentistry
Digital Smile Design- A Reality
With today's fast-track life, it has become a necessity to predict or assess the
actual outcome of any procedure one undergoes on his/ her body. Be it liposuction
for a big tummy or laser hair removal on facial skin!
Then why not for our own teeth? Yes, now with the help of simple software and few
technical gadgets, we can assess and predict the result of any smile that needs
correction. That too without any pain or invasive procedure!
In western countries, it is a well established science and reality to assess the
digitally developed smile before getting any procedure done. At Smiles Forever Studio
Clinic- Andheri we have been treating patients of all ages needing smile or rejuvenation,
under the same protocol of Digital Smile Design.
A short appointment of half an hour is scheduled, in which the needy patient's photographs
are clicked using specific camera angles. This is followed by quick study models
of the patient's existing teeth along with one or two X-rays if required.
Immediately within a day or two, the most apt picture is processed by highly qualified
clinicians, who are trained to undergo various modifications and additions using
Once the expected or predicted results in the smile and surrounding structures like
gums and tissues are achieved, it is converted into a postcard size photograph and
shown to the patient as before and after results. Simultaneously, our expert clinicians,
under my guidance and supervision work on virtual study models to assess the actual
need and possibility of physical changes in tooth form, shape and height.
The patient is then scheduled for an appointment to discuss and understand the possible
but definite improvements in smile.
In this same appointment, the patient is explained the approximate number of appointments
(generally two) and the exact cost of the smile correction.
Patients who have undergone this pleasant experience of understanding their new
look and smile, have long lasting memories of painless and assuring skill with warm
All this is possible today without a hint of pain but with astonishing reality and
a feel good factor.
