When it comes to creating the ideal smile, there is no one-size-fits all approach. Digital Smile Design is an advanced treatment planning tool Dr. Robert Carimi uses to offers a systematic, personalized approach for designing a smile perfect for each individual patient. Smile Design in Charleston, SC, blends the artistry of cosmetic dentistry with the science of modern dental technology to generate predictable, optimal smile results. With this technology, we can plan the exact shape, shade, and length of each tooth in the smile zone. The design software uses videography and photographic data along with functional and biologic data to produce a virtual representation of your end results. The best part? You get to see how your final smile results will look before treatment even begins
To start the Digital Smile Design process, we perform a thorough clinical assessment of your oral health needs, and discuss your personal preferences on how you want your new smile to look. We take digital videos and photos both inside and outside of the mouth, and input this information into our software. Other components of data collection and analysis we consider during Smile Design, include your facial structure, symmetry and shape, personality and oral health needs.
The next step of is where we begin customized smile creation. Using the data we have collected, Dr. Carimi manipulates the virtual Digital Design representation of your smile by meticulously transforming each tooth appearing in the smile zone to its ideal color, shape, length and size, in relation to your facial and oral features. This approach creates a smile proportionate to your face, jaw, gums, lips and mouth when at rest, smiling and exhibiting other types of emotions.
Apart from experiencing the final treatment results of Digital Smile Design, the smile mockup phase is the most exciting part! This is where you get to see in realistic fashion what your new smile will look like once treatment is complete. Our Design software generates a predictable visualization of smile transformation results. At this point, we make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan and visual mockup until you are completely satisfied.
The final phase of designing your perfect smile is cosmetic dentistry treatment! Most of these procedures address both functional and esthetic needs of the mouth, and often include porcelain veneers, lifelike crowns and bridges, teeth whitening, full arch dental implants and full mouth reconstruction treatment.
