Digital Smile Design Q & A

What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design is a dental treatment planning tool that gives you and Dr. Zamora the ability to digitally design the smile you’ve always wanted and devise a treatment plan to achieve it.

With Digital Smile Design, Dr. Zamora can sketch out a smile that’s perfectly suited to your facial features, skin tone, and personality, and show you how it looks in your mouth before undergoing the treatments required to make it permanent.

Digital Smile Design allows smile makeovers to be more effective and patient-centered than ever before, helping you to find the best outcome in your journey towards the perfect smile.

Is Digital Smile Design widely available?

No, Dr. Zamora is one of the few dentists in the country that performs Digital Smile Design.

Digital Smile Design clinics and providers are a hand-selected for their ability to interweave dentistry, artistry, and technology.

Because Digital Smile Design requires a deep understanding of the aesthetic relationship between the colors and shapes of your teeth, gums, lips, smile, and facial features, providers need to have strong artistic talent and vision to be able to properly execute the design process. They also need to have the experience and technical skills to provide the treatments that will help you achieve your design and give you your perfect smile.

Dr. Zamora is incredibly skilled in envisioning and collaborating with her patients to find a smile that’s best suited for their appearance and expresses the best version of themselves, and is proud to be one of the select few to offer Digital Smile Design.

What’s the process for getting Digital Smile Design?

The first step in your Digital Smile Design process is to make a digital scan of your mouth. Using a small device called an intraoral scanner, Dr. Zamora will take pictures and videos of every angle of your mouth, smile, and teeth. These images and videos will then be uploaded to a computer, where they’ll be turned into a 3-dimensional rendering of your smile that can be digitally altered in every way imaginable.

Next, you and Dr. Zamora will discuss the smile you want to achieve and the image you want to project. Dr. Zamora will perform a detailed analysis of your facial and dental characteristics, and make adjustments accordingly in your three-dimension smile simulation, trying out different shapes and configurations until you find something that you like.

Dr. Zamora then shows you exactly how you’ll look with your new smile by creating virtual “before and after” pictures before you even start treatment. She also might craft a temporary prosthetic version of the smile for you to try on. If you’re happy with your design, she then devises a treatment plan to achieve it with bespoke veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants, or orthodontic treatments, and begins working on making your dream smile a reality.
