Digital Smile Design
Transform your smile. Radiate confidence. Light up the room.
Cosmetic dentistry including restorative dentistry for missing, chipped or misaligned teeth has advanced rapidly over the last few years. Dental patients who’ve previously had their self-esteem knocked due to an imperfect smile or teeth that make them self-conscious, have traditionally had to rely on a dental approach that only allows them to see their new smile after dental treatment has finished. This means there’s been an element of risk and a delve into the unknown once they’ve agreed to undergo what is sometimes complex and difficult dental work. The good news is you now no longer have to worry about what your smile and teeth will look like after dental work.
Digital Smile Design at Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford is innovative, cutting-edge dentistry that gives our patients the power to choose the smile they’ve always dreamed of and see what your smile will look like before treatment starts. That’s right, Digital Smile Design (DSD) technology allows you to co-design your own smile with the help of our expert dental team at Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford. Our Oxford dentists will work with you so you don’t just get a beautiful set of teeth, you get a new smile that works in harmony with your facial characteristics, personality and enhances how you talk, laugh and smile.
What is Digital Smile Design?
The game-changing idea behind Digital Smile Design is you get to see the proportions and relationship between your teeth, lips, eyes, cheeks and gums. Once you’re able to see how your new teeth appear in relationship to your facial features, we, at Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford are able to work with you to make a smile that uniquely matches your smile goals and personality. Put simply, Digital Smile Design delivers incredible predictability and efficiency for all cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Why Choose Summertown Dental & Implants for Digital Smile Design?
For DSD at Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford, we’ve devised a three-stage process to ensure our patients are guaranteed the smile of their dreams.
Professional enhanced digital photography
Our team is specially trained to photograph your teeth and smile before treatment begins. Often our patients have perfected the art of hiding their smile, especially when there’s a camera about, as they’ve been embarrassed about how they look for many years. One of the primary goals for all dental patients interested in Digital Smile Design is to find that carefree smile they had when they were younger. Making sure you lose that self-conscious feeling when you have a photo taken or are invited into a group selfie is also our goal. To do that effectively we need to capture your face and smile as it is before treatment starts and discuss what you don’t like about your “look” so we can advise on the best course of treatment going forward.
Video smile analysis
You’d be amazed the role our lips play on how we look when we eat, talk, laugh or smile. The best way to review the movement of lips in different scenarios is to film short video clips which our dentist will review with you. How our mouth works in harmony with the rest of our facial features is vital to see and will help you identify what you’d like to change and keep. The more knowledge we have when it comes to how all our features work together; the better we can plan your smile design and deliver your dream smile.
Bespoke smile design
Armed with your enhanced digital imagery our Digital Smile Design team in Oxford will present a digital mock-up of what the results of your cosmetic dentistry treatment will look like. You’ll be able to see a side-by-side comparison as you smile, laugh and talk with what your new teeth will look like; and all before any treatment has started! This is your chance to tell us exactly what you want. We begin designing your perfect smile with a clear image of the end results in mind, combined with the way your smile looks now.
