Smile Designing

A smile seems like just a simple movement of  the lips and facial muscles.But it is, in fact, a powerful universal language and expression to greet others. We use similes to express a range of emotions. A smile has the power to release stress and make you healthy, calm you down, make you attractive, and others happy.

Perhaps, one of the main reasons why a person would not smile is because of unattractive teeth or bad breath. If you think you have an unattractive smile, a smile design can help you. Smile design can fulfill your dream of having a flawless and confident smile.

What is a smile design?
As the name suggests, smile design is a protocol of managing the shapes, contours, and color of the teeth as they appear in a smile proportioned according to the individual face to improve the appearance. A smile design always includes the evaluation and analysis of both facial and dental composition.

By looking at every aspect of your mouth, a smile design expert can combine individual treatments into a bespoke menu. Smile design can help you to straighten the misaligned teeth, closing gaps, repairing the chipped or cracked teeth changing the shape of the teeth, and whitening your teeth.

How is the treatment done?
Some patients are looking for a pearly white smile, where some want to straighten their teeth. The skillful and experienced team of Smile and Glow will discuss with you about your concerns and goals, to give the beautiful, natural smile you have always wanted.

Treatments that can create your Smile Design include:

Conventional smile design

Smile mockup is the most common and comfortable procedure in smile design. After the complete evaluation and analysis of both your facial and dental composition, a mockup created using a temporary tooth-colored material known as flowable composite is applied directly onto your teeth, without creating any damage. This process helps to assimilate your new smile and enables you to have a preview of your new teeth very quickly.

You can see the before and after of your teeth quickly within a short time by taking pictures of the Mock-up Smile. The expert creates the wax pattern of your new smile using the measurements and impressions of the mockup.

Whether you are considering teeth straightening, veneers, bonding, or a full smile makeover, a mockup Smile can help you to glimpse your new smile. A Mock-up Smile helps you to see the results just before you commit to any treatment and help you to decide whether you should go ahead with a smile makeover.


Digital smile design

The digital smile design (DSD) is a digital planning tool for aesthetic dentistry, in which the evaluation of the aesthetic relationship among the teeth, gingiva, smile, and face is obtained through lines, digital drawings, videos, photographs, and temporary mockups. The use of digital tools offers dentists and technicians a new perspective for diagnosis and treatment plan, as well as how they work together to create the patient’s smile.

After collecting all the relevant information about every aspect of your mouth, our aesthetic dentist will look at the digital library of various forms and shapes that can be placed over the top of your teeth in the images. The images and videos help the expert to create a more realistic model, which may include your facial aesthetics and other vital aspects and provide you with a proper glimpse of what you can expect from the treatment.

With so many cosmetic dental treatments available, decisions are tough to make. Experts of Smile and Glow can help you to make the right decision. Our expert aesthetic dentist offers different options to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.

DSD is almost instantaneous. And the patient can view their new smile on the screen within seconds, thereby helping them to make decisions immediately. Once the patient approves the smile on the screen, 3D wax printing of the smile is done and temporaries are made and given to the patient for final approval. Any corrections can be done at this stage and once the patient is satisfied, the exact replica is made using permanent restorative materials like ceramics and cemented on the patients teeth.
