The digital smile design process begins with a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. He or she will talk to you about your smile goals, examine your teeth and jaw joints for any alignment issues or bite problems, and take any necessary X-rays. Then, your dentist will create a 3D model of your ideal smile and treatment plan using special software. The dentist will design different options for the patient's potential smile as well. You might even be able to preview your new smile before treatment begins! Your dentist will then create a customized treatment plan just for you. It may involve one or more cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, Invisalign®️, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, gum contouring, or even implant-supported restorations. This will all be discussed with you in detail during the consultation process.
