Modern dentistry sets tasks related to not only the treatment of patients and the restoration of lost teeth, but also to improve the aesthetic characteristics of all elements of the jaw row.
Even a separate industry has emerged that specializes in dental beauty.
It's about aesthetic medicine.
Digital Smile Design Method in Modern Aesthetic Dentistry
Computer modeling of teeth or, as it is also called, the design of a smile in dentistry has been increasingly used in recent years. This unique method, involving the use of modern technology, has fundamentally changed the clinical approach. Especially at the stage of analyzing the appearance of the patient's teeth.
The technique is based on 3d-modeling of teeth, which makes a dentist not just an advanced specialist in the field of medicine, but also an operator of information systems.
For work, the doctor uses special software, which allows you to see the result of the work even at the stage of planning the restoration of the aesthetic attractiveness of the dentition.
Smile modeling with Digital Smile Design (DSD)
Digital modeling of a smile is not just about creating a beautiful picture on a computer.
DSD dentistry is a unique innovative technology, the work within which involves several stages:
- Diagnosis and treatment planning. At this stage, the specialist examines the oral cavity and the structure of the patient's face, simultaneously recording all significant data (problem teeth, anatomical features). Then the patient's face is photographed in four angles and all existing deviations are noted. At the end of the stage, the doctor, together with the patient, chooses the best option for obtaining a flawless smile, on the basis of which a plan for the upcoming treatment is drawn up.
- Digital modeling. At this stage, a control model is made using a smile simulation program, which takes into account all the features related to the aesthetic side of the work.
Study. Intraoral examination includes:
- functional tests;
- phonetic tests;
- assessment of aesthetics.
Surgery. As for the surgical part of the work, it involves various manipulations:
- tooth extraction;
- patchwork operations;
- gingivotomy etc.
- Prosthetics. Prosthetics is the final stage of work within the framework of the described technique. If necessary, patients can be installed crowns, lumineers and veneers.
The result of using the Digital Smile Design technique, as a rule, always surpasses even the wildest expectations of a patient in a dental clinic. The most important thing is not to be mistaken with the choice of the latter.
