Smile Design

Thanks to smoother tooth structure, healthy and strong gums, and more accurate and uniform tooth color achieved through Smile Design, people gain psychological strength and blend into society more confidently. With aesthetic dental applications and smile design developed in the light of today’s advanced technology and scientific studies, it is possible to obtain a more natural and aesthetic smile by presenting an interdisciplinary study.

What is Smile Design?

Smile Design eliminates conditions that fall within the scope of aesthetic dentistry and causes disruptions in aesthetic appearance for various reasons. Smile design procedures related to teeth and gums occupy an important place in oral care. Decayed teeth, crooked teeth, and various gum diseases affect aesthetic appearance and negatively impact people’s oral and physical health. On the other hand, deteriorations such as tooth loss, tooth color discrepancies, and some distortions that do not affect oral health reduce people’s quality of life and negatively affect their social life. Due to the impact of smile aesthetics and design on communication and socialization in today’s world, unresolved oral issues can lead to serious problems such as the inability to laugh in public and a lack of self-confidence.

What problems are solved with Smile Design?

In Smile Design procedures, an application plan is created based on the structure of the mouth, face, and jaw and people’s specific needs. With the procedures experienced aesthetic dentists apply, the aim is to help people have healthier mouths and a more aesthetic smile. Some of the problems for which smile design procedures provide solutions are the following:

  • Disproportionate tooth color and other tooth color problems
  • Gingival problems and gum deformities
  • Disorders in the alignment of the teeth
  • Irregular spaces between teeth
  • Problems with missing teeth
  • Inconsistency of tooth lengths
  • Cracked and broken tooth structure
  • Inconsistencies between the mouth and facial structure

What procedures are used in smile design?

The procedures used in smile design vary from person to person. Each mouth structure has its characteristics and different aesthetic requirements. Including individual wishes in the procedure results in different and multidisciplinary combinations of procedures. In smile design procedures, appropriate procedure or procedures are selected by considering factors such as the face lines, gender, age, and expectations of the person and determining the needs. The priority is to eliminate problems that negatively affect health, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Other procedures that can be used in the design of the smile are:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Cleaning of teeth
  • Zirconium Crowns
  • Porcelain laminates
  • Implant
  • Filling Treatment
  • Orthodontic treatments
  • Porcelain Veneer
  • Gingival Aesthetics

What is the treatment process at Smile Design?

The treatment process at Smile Design begins with an examination of the patient’s oral structure and dental health and informing the patient on oral health. After being informed about the possible procedures, application methods, and results, an accurate and effective application plan is created, taking into account the specific requirements of the individual. It is very important to understand people’s aesthetic expectations of smile design and properly determine the requirements to achieve a desired and healthy smile. As a result of mutual information, the necessary measurements are taken in people’s mouths, the problems are determined in detail, and a treatment model is created. The models are created with the help of special programs and technological measurements in a computer environment. In this way, the process is controlled more precisely. The process occurs through exchanging ideas with the patient and ends with implementing the appropriate procedures. The duration of the smile design process depends on factors such as the presence of orthodontic applications, the variety of procedures, and the extent of existing disorders.
