The 5 Smile Makeover Standards

We believe in providing quality dentistry at every stage of your journey with us, because you deserve the very best. That’s why we always follow five Smile Makeover Standards for every patient looking to enhance their smile with us. This is your guarantee of the quality of treatment you can expect from us as we deliver your smile makeover, and these are our five promises to you…

1

Gathering the details

As a DSD certified clinic, we use Digital Smile Design at the beginning of every smile makeover journey. This means gathering as much detailed information as possible, using the advanced scanning technology we have in our practice, to start the planning process.

2

Your 3D smile design

We believe your smile makeover should be beautiful but undetectable… our goal is to make you the best version of you. Therefore, a natural aesthetic is always our goal. Your new smile will be designed in 3D to create facial harmony, complementing your natural features, and creating a balanced result. This is called facially driven 3D smile design.

3

Your bespoke digital treatment plan

Using the enhanced information gathered in the first phase, combined with the 3D smile designed created in the second phase, we will begin to plan your bespoke smile makeover journey. This will outline every stage of your personalised treatment plan, leading you to the smile of your dreams.

4

Test drive your smile

We love the 3D smile simulation that we create in the second phase and this really helps patients to imagine how their smile could look. However, nothing beats the real thing. This is why we are pleased to provide trial smiles, which is like a test drive for your smile. You will be able to see, feel, and check your smile design in your own mouth before approving it.

5

Your final smile

By this final stage of your treatment, we will have gathered so much information about your ideal smile that we will be able to create it with complete precision. Our specialised, digital tools will deliver your custom treatment to exact standards – the smile you approved will be exactly what you will get. We are proud to be able to deliver this level of precision and our patients love it.

Here at New Life Teeth, we invest in the latest technology to ensure the treatments and services we provide are altogether better for patients.

One such investment is Digital Smile Design. In Belfast and Edinburgh, DSD technology allows patients the chance to choose and create their smile, putting them front and centre in the cosmetic design process.

How is Digital Smile Design technology used?

During an initial consultation, the first thing our cosmetic dentists do is listen to the patient.

Aesthetics are subjective and having a good understanding of how that patient perceives their current smile and how they would like it to be, goes a long way towards creating the perfect aesthetic for them.Then, it’s the job of our highly skilled clinicians in Edinburgh and Belfast to help the patient visualise how that look can be achieved. This is where DSD technology can help.

The starting point

Firstly, documented evidence of a patient’s existing smile is collected using a series of photographs and videos.

This is so that facial analysis can be carried out to better understand the relationship between the teeth, gums, lips and the face in motion.

The Smile Test Drive

Our advanced technology allows us to create a mock-up of your ideal smile that you can physically try over your existing teeth. We will also create a virtual simulation of your proposed treatment on a digital 3D model of your mouth to give you the full picture before any work begins.

The Smile Test Drive allows our Digital Smile Design dentists in Edinburgh and Belfast to work with you to make adjustments and tweaks until your perfect smile goals are achieved.

Being able to see what the finished smile will look like is a huge advantage that avoids any uncertainty surrounding cosmetic dentistry treatment – seeing really is believing! It also provides a clear and concise picture for our team to work towards.

How Digital Smile Design helps you

Digital Smile Design is used with a range of dental procedures, particularly treatments like full-arch dental implants and dental veneers.

It lets you virtually experience your new teeth before you commit to a particular procedure. The opportunity to see how it looks to have a complete set of functioning teeth or the aesthetic smile of your dreams can make all the difference in helping you to make an informed decision about your dental treatment.

For many patients, this is a ground-breaking moment that shows that the beautiful smile they crave is only a treatment away.

If you are considering a full-arch treatment or feel that dental veneers could be right for you but want to find out more before you commit, then book a Digital Smile Design treatment in Edinburgh or Belfast to see if it can help.

New Life Teeth are delighted to offer this service free of charge as part of your smile consultation. Ask us about our Digital Smile Design technology in Belfast and Edinburgh when you book your consultation with us.

Commonly asked questions

How much input does the patient get in creating their ideal smile?

First and foremost, it’s always the patient’s choice. Although, as dental professionals, we will try to guide the patient, particularly if they’re uncertain as to why they aren’t happy with the appearance of their existing smile. On occasions, we may also have to step in and explain any limitations particularly relating to a patient's overall health and the levels of invasiveness required to achieve what the patient wants

How do you manage patient expectations?

The virtual imagery does this. It’s extremely accurate so a patient will know what can and cannot be achieved.

How long does the Digital Smile Design process take?

There is no set time limit for this process and we will take all the time necessary to ensure that you are happy with the proposed outcome before we move on to any form of treatment planning.
