What Is Digital Smile Design? How Does It Work?If you’ve been wondering how to fix your smile, Digital Smile Design is a great tool to ensure you’re getting the smile you want! Here’s how the process works:
- Imaging: First, we’ll take several types of images of your teeth, mouth, and face. We will take 3D scans, 3D x-rays, high-resolution photos, and detailed videos so that we can get an accurate model of your face and mouth.
- Designing Your New Smile: Then, you’ll work with your dentist to create the perfect smile for your mouth. Digital Smile Design lets you be involved every step of the way so that we can ensure you’re perfectly happy with your new smile!
- 3D Perfect Printing: Once we have a plan for what treatments we’re going to try, we’ll print out a model of your smile using our 3D printers and use that as a base to craft veneers, crowns, and bridges that will fit perfectly with your smile.
- Test Drive: We’ll attach a mockup of your smile improvements to your teeth and you’ll get to try it out for a few weeks. If you decide you like what you see and feel, we’ll make the changes permanent.
Test Drive Your Beautiful New SmileAnother great thing about Digital Smile Design is that it allows you to test out your new smile before you commit. You’ll be able to see a 3D model of your new smile and even test it out in your mouth! At Clocktower Family Dental, we care about your opinion, so we want to make sure everything is perfect before we do the final work. You’ll have the chance to approve or tweak your new smile before scheduling your actual appointment.
The Fibonacci Series and the Golden Ratio of BeautyThere’s no such thing as a truly bad smile, but there are some tricks we can use to help make your smile as appealing as possible. The Fibonacci series is a mathematical sequence created by adding all the previous numbers in the sequence. This sequence creates a phenomenon called the “golden ratio,” which is found in shell swirls, leaves, and many other natural things. It’s been shown that humans naturally perceive the golden ratio as pleasing and beautiful. Something about our brains loves the golden ratio!
