What is Digital Smile Design?

Getting ready to give your grin a glow-up? Gone are the days of guesswork in dentistry. Digital Smile Design utilises recent technology to design your dream smile with precision and artistic flair. Since everyone's smile is unique, factors like gender, facial structure and even skin tone are considered to achieve the perfect result.

Smile design incorporates a combination of dental treatments to make your smile look better. This process follows the Golden Proportions concept, ensuring that your smile harmonises beautifully with the rest of your face.


How does Digital Smile Design work?

At Dental Designs, we use a series of modern digital tools to take dental impressions including full-frame digital photographs and 8k video recordings to analyse your facial expressions and dental proportions. This gives us a better understanding and objective guidance in crafting out your smile makeover.

Smile Design uses a combination of aesthetic dental procedures including dental veneers, dental implants, teeth whitening and Invisalign. The chosen treatment(s) will depend on the patient’s condition and desired new smile. For example, dental bonding or veneers are put in place to manage chipped teeth; dental bridges for multiple missing teeth; laser gum contouring for the excessive gum tissue and professional whitening for tooth

Why choose Digital Smile Design?

Getting a new smile at Dental Designs

Step 1: Consultation

At your first visit, we will discuss with you your expectations and go through the whole process, including a proposed plan and estimated final cost. We will also conduct a thorough examination that consists of digital photos, videos, dental impressions and X-rays to create your digital smile design.

Step 2: Designing the smile

The digital dental impressions taken are used to create a virtual smile design. This digital smile design is then translated to a 3D virtual model. This will be your smile design prototype.

Step 3: Preview of your smile design and mock ups

The design is presented to you and any adjustments are made on the spot. Once the design is approved, we will transfer the smile prototype into a mockup that can be fitted onto your teeth. This allows you to have a real-life preview of how your final smile would feel and look like. Again, any changes can be made.

Once the final smile design is approved, we will discuss with you the procedures needed to achieve your makeover smile and start work on what’s required.

Step 4: Fitting your new smile

Your smile makeover and final restorations will be put in place by our team of dental surgeons and specialists. There you have it — enjoy your new smile! We do a follow-up review with all patients about two weeks after so any fine-tuning or adjustments can be carried out.

Following this, we recommend that you come back for regular dental visits as basic at-home care might not be sufficient.
