Digital Smile Design in Friendswood
You’ve likely heard the old saying, a picture is worth a thousand words. At Friendswood Dental Group, we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’re so proud of our innovative digital smile design system. Rather than spending time struggling to accurately describe our recommended dentistry services and your potential results, we can use our state-of-the-art digital smile design software to show you exactly what we’re talking about. Using images of your current smile, we can use our smile design system to give you samples of various results to ensure you feel 100% confident before beginning a cosmetic or restorative dentistry plan or orthodontic treatment. Want to learn more about treatment planning using digital smile design or any of our other dentistry services? Call our Friendswood dentist, James T. Sierra, DDS, FAGD, and his caring dental team to schedule a consultation visit with us today.
What is Digital Smile Design
Digital smile design combines state-of-the-art technology and digital photos to help patients find the best treatment options to meet their needs. We start by capturing an image of your smile as is. Then, we ask that you be prepared to describe smiles that you find attractive or even bring pictures of some of your favorite smiles that we can use during the smile design process. Then, the digital software allows us to manipulate the photo of your current smile to look more like what you’re looking for, showing the results of various treatments. We can make small adjustments to these digital treatment plans until you see the results you’re after. You can even take copies of one or more photos with you to ask friends or family members for feedback before beginning your treatment plan.
Benefits of Digital Smile Design
There are numerous benefits to treatment planning with the assistance of digital smile design, including:
- Confidence – because you can see exactly what your smile will look like before we begin treatment, you’ll feel completely confident in the treatment plan.
- Precision – there won’t be unnecessary treatments or need for touchups or redo’s. You’ll get exactly what you want the first time.
- Patient-centered – this treatment planning process is completely patient-centered. You are an active participant in the design process, and your feedback regarding the budget and schedule can all be taken into consideration throughout the planning process. Adjustments to the plan are easily made before we get started.
