How the Smile Design Process Works
When done correctly, is an extremely detailed process that requires expertise and an artistic eye. This is evident in all the steps our takes:
Our goal is to listen and understand what you want or don’t want.
Are we building a smile you used to have? Enhancing a smile you currently have? Or building a smile you never had?
All options are possible.
We’ll discuss eight key elements of your smile design, including:
- Incisal edge position and length
- Midline position and cant
- Gum heights and contours
- Tooth proportions
- Tooth textures and natural effects
- Buccal corridor
- Axial inclination of teeth
- Tooth shade
If you’re not familiar with these terms, don’t worry. We’ll educate you, show you examples of cases for each aspect, answer any questions, and provide our professional opinion so you make informed decisions for your smile.
Next, we’ll generate a digital 2D smile design using specialized software. This will give you a preview of what we can do to your smile and overall appearance.
Diagnostics and Planning
This step is one that many dentists skip. However, we feel it’s absolutely necessary.
In this phase, we’ll take:
- High-quality photography with special facial reference glasses
- 3D digital scans of your teeth
Together, these generate a wealth of metrics to reverse engineer your new smile based on specific landmarks and measurements of your face.
Dr. Schmidgall will mainly focus on three categories: your lips, gums, and teeth. Properly balancing these aspects are vital in creating a smile that complements you.
This step takes out any guesswork and allows us to design your smile confidently and in a very calculated manner.
Preparation and Prototypes
Now it’s time to test drive your new smile.
To begin, we’ll prepare your teeth in the most conservative way possible. This is achieved by working closely with a ceramist and only reducing the tooth as needed.
Dr. Schmidgall will craft custom prototypes in the shape, texture, and color of the final restorations. These will be placed over your prepared teeth and worn for roughly 3-4 weeks. The material of these prototypes can be modified if you’d like to change any aspect before the final restorations are made.
Once you are happy with the result, we’ll take a 3D scan of the final prototypes so the ceramist can copy this for your final restorations.
Place New Smile
It’s the day you’ve been waiting for!
We’ll remove the prototypes then carefully bond your new restorations in place. We’ll balance your bite, polish your teeth, and go over instructions on caring for your new smile.
A few weeks later, you’ll come back for a follow up for an exam and to make any fine-tune adjustments if needed.
You’ll get to enjoy your beautiful smile for many, many years to come!
As you can see, this process is complex. But your Fort Worth dentist has spent years meticulously crafting it with technology, collaboration, and cutting edge protocols to give you the best outcome.
