Are You Self Conscious About Your Smile?

If you don’t love your smile, you may be held back from truly enjoying life.

For example, how many times have you:

  • Given a lips-closed smile
  • Hid your teeth in photos or while you talk
  • Refrained from or covered your mouth while laughing out loud
  • Avoided social situations, meeting new people, or getting out of your comfort zone
  • Worried about what other people think
  • Felt unattractive

This is no way of living. You deserve to love your smile and share it with others. Cosmetic dentistry may be the best option for you!

Investing in your smile makeover is a big commitment for dental care. You don’t want to waste money on subpar results or unnecessary treatments.

That’s why we recommend a digital smile design. It’s a meticulous process that’s designed around your goals and face. There’s zero guesswork – only predictable results, which you get to preview before starting!

The advantages of a smile design in Fort Worth include:

  • Modern technology that lets us digitally customize your smile design and let you preview it

  • Having a voice in how you want your smile to look, from the teeth’s color to curvature
  • Test driving your new smile before the final product is made
  • Less drilling and more saving of healthy tooth structure
  • All treatments align with your end goal

The end result is a one-of-a-kind smile that looks so beautiful and natural strangers will think you were born with it.

How the Smile Design Process Works

When done correctly, smile design is an extremely detailed process that requires expertise and an artistic eye. This is evident in all the steps our cosmetic dentist takes:

  • Complimentary Consultation

    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:

    1. Incisal edge position and length
    2. Midline position and cant
    3. Gum heights and contours
    4. Tooth proportions
    5. Tooth textures and natural effects
    6. Buccal corridor
    7. Axial inclination of teeth
    8. 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
    • X-rays

    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.
