If you’ve always felt that you didn’t look good when you smiled, or have gradually perfected a close-mouthed or hand-in-front-of-the-mouth smile in an attempt to mask discoloured or uneven teeth, it may come as a surprise to realise that we can help you change your smile whenever you’re ready! We offer a holistic design programme that allows you to select the type of smile effect that you want to achieve, we will then put in place an appropriate package of orthodontic and dental treatments to enable you to achieve the exact look you’re aiming for. Ideal for anybody that dreams of owning a perfect, non-self-conscious smile, the Digital Smile Design (DSD) service could be exactly what you’re looking for.



What does the digital smile design process consist of?


When you turn to us for a full digital smile transformation, the first thing we will do is to take a picture of your existing smile. This gives you the opportunity to point out the bits of it you don’t like, helping to provide the information we need to come up with an appropriate solution. We want to know everything you dislike about your smile – from feeling ashamed of your teeth to feeling that your smile is uneven, or doesn’t suit your face – no matter what the issue might be, if we know what it is then we can work with you to try and resolve it. In addition to taking still photographs of your smile, we will also shoot a brief video clip of you speaking. This provides further information on how your smile integrates with your other facial muscles and gives you another opportunity to tell us what an improved smile would look like. Once we have all this data at our disposal, we are then in a position to design a suitable programme of intervention to move you towards the smile you crave.


Wide range of dental provision on offer


Our plan for your smile will take into account both the aesthetic appeal of your intended look and also the health of your mouth and teeth. The aim with digital smile design is to come up with a treatment plan that leaves your oral health in top condition at the same time as providing you with a smile that you can be rightfully proud of. The type of options open to you to obtain your dream smile include tooth whitening procedures, veneers or braces (including Invisalign – braces which are almost invisible when in use). The treatment plan will be tailored to your specific requirements, with the goal of providing you with the smile you crave as well as optimal dental well-being.


We’ll show you the end result before we start!


One of the major advantages of using digital technology to design your perfect smile is that we are able to generate an image of what the end result will look like before we begin your treatment. This enables you not only to get a good idea of just how stunning you’re going to be once your smile transformation is complete, it also gives you the opportunity to make any last-minute changes to the intended tooth colour or any other design features before we start. Once you’re 100% happy, we can commence your treatment and you can begin the journey towards the smile you’ve always wanted.


How long does it take for my digital smile design to be realised?


Because each treatment plan is tailored to meet the needs of the individual and because everybody is unique, the exact time it will take for your new look to be achieved will vary. Veneers and teeth whitening procedures usually take effect in a significantly shorter timescale than braces, so if you’re opting for those then the effects will be more immediate.


Why opt for digital smile design?


Using digital technology to provide an accurate impression of the results your intended cosmetic treatment might achieve makes it much easier to work out what interventions are going to be most effective in giving you the end look you want. We aim to offer every patient a good selection of treatment options that give them the opportunity to enjoy a fresh, engaging smile. Not only does an attractive smile enhance physical appeal, knowing that your smile reveals only white, even teeth can be an enormous confidence booster – many people report significantly improved self-esteem and much better confidence once they’ve managed to get the white, bright smile they’ve always wanted. No matter what your age, background or dental health is at the present time, we will usually be able to work with you to create a smile that ticks all your boxes at the same time as being achievable and affordable.
