To briefly describe, a smile design is utilization of a bulk of dental procedures to craft an aesthetically pleasant smile, tailored specifically for the patients wishes. Consisting of operations from various sub-fields of dentistry, ranging from cosmetic dentistry to orthodontics, a procedure of smile design approaches the mouth and face holistically to create the perfect smile for the patient.

Also called as a Smile Makeover, a procedure of smile design restores the color of the teeth, fixes the overall dental symmetry and layout, moreover provides further aesthetic solutions for the teeth regarding the size, shape and crookedness. A successful smile makeover will enhance the patients oral health, confidence and attractiveness.



Procedure


Due to the nature of the operation, a smile design is a tailor-made process, crafted specifically for the patients wishes, of course with regard to their overall oral health. In the first appointment, a cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth and teeth and listen to your expectations from the procedure. After collaboratively deciding on the features and the structure of your new smile, our specialists will use digital planning to efficiently visualize the expected results from the procedure. In the final phase of your planning process, your dentist will analyze your facial and oral features also, your suitability for the needed treatments. After digitally crafting your new smile, with regard to your oral and maxillofacial features and convenience, a variety of dental treatments will start in order to create the "perfect" smile. In a smile design procedure, mostly administered treatments are:



Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening is a bleaching process to give the patient a shiny, brand-new smile. Teeth discoloration is relatively prevalent and can be caused by a variety of reasons from your eating and drinking habits to lack of oral care. After evaluating your face with a holistic approach, even considering aspects like your skin tone, shade and proportions of your lips and hair color, a cosmetic dentist will advise you a tone of white to bleach the teeth. Of course, the patient has the last word and still he or she can go with much whiter (or darker tones) for the treatment.

Teeth whitening procedures remove the stains on your teeth swiftly and effectively, without causing any harm on the surface of the tooth. Even though there are home care kits for teeth whitening; on the procedure of a smile makeover, it is generally conducted on the clinics by a specialist, to achieve perfect results without any harm or unwanted complications. Thus, as a result of a simple and quick process, the patient can achieve a whiter smile to exhibit without any fear.



Teeth Aligning


There are a range of orthodontic problems that could possibly restrain a patient from achieving a great smile. Most prevalent of those problems are crowded teeth on the mouth, crookedness and unwanted gaps between the teeth. Fortunately, all of those forementioned problems could be solved with orthodontic treatments. With the application of braces (removable or fixed depending on the severity of your situation), clear aligners, or the process of cosmetic teeth straightening, the overall layout of the teeth on the mouth can be corrected, thus enabling the patient to achieve her or his desired smile.

Gum Sculpturing


Gum sculpting, also known as gum contouring is a process used to create a healthy and aesthetical gumline. The treatment is mostly used for cosmetic purposes but can also be used in order to help with treatments such as regenerative operations, crown treatments and pocket reduction. In the context of smile design, gum sculpting takes on a high degree of importance. Uneven or excessively short or long gums often cause aesthetical concern for patients, and as a part of the smile design treatment, our experienced team of dentists are ready to help patients through the process to enjoy a beautiful smile.



Shape Size


Shape of individual teeth may create both functional and cosmetic issues for patients. As a part of the smile design treatment, we offer patients individually tailored solutions to give their misshapen, long or short teeth an aesthetical look which will fit in with the rest of their teeth.

The process may include reshaping long the teeth, in which one of our dentists will carefully remove a portion of the tooths enamel to give it a natural length and size, tooth bonding, in which chipped or groovy teeth will be fitted with a material that will fill in the necessary spaces, restoring the tooths natural functionally and aesthetics.

Our clinic also offers dental crown treatments as a solution for more difficult cases, often for patients with short teeth. The process is undergone by first reshaping the tooth to a conical looking shape, then fitting a dental crown on it by using appropriate cementing material. Dental veneers may also be preferred by patients who have mild deformation or decoloring on their tooth or teeth, which doesn't create functional concerns but is aesthetically displeasant. The procedure is undergone by reshaping and placing the veneers on the anterior part of the patients tooth, producing an aesthetical look that is undiscernible from a real tooth from the outside.

Our clinic offers cosmetic surgeries for lips and cheeks to accompany the patients smile design treatment.
