What is smile design?

Smile design uses computer technology in the design and production of dental prostheses. It is a computer-controlled treatment that can also be used for Implant diagnosis and surgery in one day, making it minimally invasive. Using the software, the Aesthetic Dentist can plan and create design braces with higher-quality materials, resulting in lower production costs and shorter production times.

From the surgical point of view, technology allows for better planning through the simulation of the operation and the prediction of the results of the intervention before it is performed. One of the advantages of smile design is that it allows the production of higher quality, more sensitive prostheses.

Why Is smile design Technology Used?

Smile design software is used to design and manufacture highly sensitive dental prostheses, thereby reducing the possibility of human error. This procedure also ensures the success of the implant by preventing incompatibilities and errors. The system can be used to create crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, veneers, mock-up replicas, mock-up bridges, implants and other orthodontic devices.

What does smile design include?

The smile design technique is carried out in three stages:

The first stage consists of digitizing the parts to be restored using a laser.

In the second stage, a computer graphic design of the prosthetic structure is created using three-dimensional software.

At the last stage, according to the information obtained from the scan, a prosthesis is produced in a short time.

Preparing for smile design:

The teeth need to be completely clean, so you need to have them professionally cleaned before they are scanned. In addition, you should maintain good dental hygiene by using appropriate brushing and flossing techniques.

Post-treatment care:

In order to maintain the results of the treatment, it is important to adhere to good dental hygiene practices by brushing and flossing after every meal. In addition, you should have regular check-ups with the dentist and have a dental cleaning to ensure the permanence of the treatment.
