Living in a digitized age offers us various benefits, improving our interaction with each other and with the world. Modern dentistry has recently introduced a new concept, with the help of new technologies. While enjoying a great vacation we invite you to solicit details and recommendations about the digital smile design besides information about the available dental implants in Dubai, if you are a patient with tooth loss or any other dental problem. Our dentists in Dubai are pleased to set up a treatment plan with you, according to the status of the denture.

Digital smile design, a modern way for restorative procedures 

The concept of digital smile design offers the patient the possibility to see how his or her smile will look like before starting the restorative procedure. Digital smile design represents a software that uses simple editing tools, chosen according to the medical problem. The digital smile design technique is done by our dentists in Dubai, who will plan the restorative procedure according to the patient’s dental problems, taking into account the client’s unique dental and facial features. 

Goals of the digital smile design 

This new technology has been introduced on the market a decade ago and, since then, our team of dentists has accustomed to this new type of dental work. The main goals of digital smile design are the following:
  • improving the  patient’s smile; if requested, the patient can become the co-author of his own smile;
  • developing a new approach to the idea of a dental treatment, by involving the patient in the selection process;
  • the clinical procedures are improved by offering a higher predictable result to the dental procedure, with the use of technology;
  • better communication between the dentist and the patient; with the help of digital smile design, patients will have the opportunity to see their future smile and become more educated in the field of dental care.

How digital smile design (DSD) works 

DSD can offer realistic dental projections, with the help of digital reconstruction of the patient’s smile. The main steps are: 
  • taking pictures of the patient’s smile – high-quality pictures are required, in order to capture the details of the teeth, teeth alignment and  facial features;
  • uploading the images into the DSD software –  our dentists in Dubai use two pictures – a portrait picture of the patient's smile and another picture presenting the intraoral region;
  • choosing a dental pattern – this procedure is done by picking from the available smile outlines, ideal smile, and many others;
  • presenting the result – the patients can see how their smile will look like after the procedure will be implemented, and our dentists in Dubai can give further recommendations on the chosen outline. 

Who can benefit from a digital smile design procedure in Dubai?

Numerous patients step into our modern dental clinics in Dubai and ask for a restorative dental procedure. It is normal to have second thoughts about particular procedures, and before anything else, our Dubai dentist will propose a quick look at how your teeth will be after the restorative methods. Teenagers with misshapen or misaligned teeth can benefit from a digital smile design and can agree upon a special dental treatment as soon as the accurate dental images are in accordance with their visions. Adult patients with ages between 25 and 45 are also invited to see how a smile and a denture can be improved and how a digital smile design can show these kinds of enhancements before choosing the correct dental plan. As for the seniors, it is best to see a doctor and to provide the dentist the medical record before any restorative procedure. The digital smile design can be available for patients with ages above 45, but the future procedures will pretty much depend on the general health of the patient.

Why choose a digital reconstruction of the teeth? 

Without any questions, there are many persons who want to see how their teeth might look like if they were different, meaning pure white, with no gaps or bad shapes. In our dental clinics in Dubai, you have the chance to achieve your goals by talking to the dentist and agreeing on a specific dental plan as soon as a digital smile projection has been presented. Besides that, a patient will definitely improve the appearance of a natural look and of course new teeth. A digital smile design puts a patient in control over the result of a cosmetic dental treatment, even if it is for a long term.

Seeing your teeth before any dental treatment

Having an idea about how your teeth should look like before any dental treatment will help you understand how the denture can be improved. As an important stage in cosmetic dentistry, the digital smile design is in most cases suggested by our dentists to all patients in need of complete information about how they can regain the lost smile through varied dental methods. Our doctors are at your disposal with complete information about the importance and the benefits of the digital smile design.

In what cases a DSD is suggested?

The digital smile design is suitable for a series of cosmetic dental procedures which can help the patient restore the denture. For instance, in cases a patient needs dental crowns, dental veneers or even dental implants, a DSD can show how the denture will look like before the treatment is commenced. Having an excellent communication with the patient will help the dentist understand what the expectations are from a cosmetic dental procedure.

The emotional impact when discovering the DSD

There are numerous cases in which the patients get surprised by the images that show how their teeth will look like. Often, persons need some time to accommodate with the idea that their denture will be completely changed, starting with the shape and the color. It is extremely important to talk to your dentist about the first impression, about your perception regarding this important change in your life and about how you should prepare for the next stage: the dental transformation.
