Computer-assisted smile designing is extremely beneficial for people to get the desired smile and look. It is also known as Digital Smile Design and is used to improve and assist communication, diagnosis, and predictability of smile designing treatments. This is done through digital esthetic analysis of the entire assembly including the teeth, smile, periodontal tissue, and the face.

Planning the Treatment:

Computer-assisted Smile Designing helps in planning the entire Smile Designing procedure for a patient depending on the condition, age and the desired look. DSD is extremely helpful in this case as it acts as a communication tool with help of which the entire process can be communicated with the patient seamlessly for better understanding and assessment.
After the proper planning, the case is discussed completely with the patient and the treatment options are proposed. The patient and the interdisciplinary dental team discuss the process and the outcomes and select the best-suited procedure. The patient then gives his or her consent if the digitally demonstrated treatment process meets his or her expectations. The different treatment processes that usually are there in a Smile Designing treatment are as follows:

  • Gingivoplasty: It is a process in which the gum tissues around the teeth are surgically reshaped. It is done to enhance the look of the gums.
  • Dental Bleaching: It is a whitening process of teeth. This process removes stains from the surface of the teeth and helps in restoring its natural colour.
  • Using Thin Ceramic Laminate Veneers: These help in the temporary fixation of dentures in teeth
  • Dental Bridging: This is used as a technique to bridge the gaps between teeth, enhancing the look.
  • Root Canal Treatment: This is used to clean infections in teeth right from their roots. The teeth are then filled with sealing materials.
  • Tooth whitening and Porcelain Veneers: A dentist uses certain tools to whiten a tooth or a set of discoloured teeth, and restores a broken tooth to give the patient the desired look.
  • Dental bonding: This technique involves the application of composite materials on the teeth’s surface. It is much cheaper and works as an alternative to Porcelain Veneers.

Who are eligible for a Smile Designing Treatment?

People who suffer from various oral issues like weak gums, bacterial plaque, tooth decay or losing can opt for a Computer Assisted Smile Designing Procedure and choose their desired treatment. People who want to enhance their smile and the overall look can also consult a doctor and dentist and choose smile designing.
Smile designing treatment is complicated but beneficial at the same time. Coupled with Computer Assisted Smile Designing’s better predictability for smile’s esthetic rehabilitation, smile designing is doing wonders in the cosmetic dental treatment arena.
