Digital Smile Preview - Brisbane Dentists - Smile Artistry

Smile Design is one of the most important aspects in aesthetic dental treatments.  Without a stunning Smile Design, there cannot be a stunning smile created!

Modern Smile Design is generated in 3D Cadcam Smile Software and shown to our patients on screen and in the mouth - a process we call Digital Smile Simulation. Viewing your new smile simulation directly in your mouth is one of the best indications of your likely treatment result.

Why do I need a Digital Smile Simulation?

The Digital Smile Simulation has two purposes:

1. Help you to visualise the aesthetic outcome from treatment before commencing treatment

2. Helping us, your Dentist ensure that we can achieve the outcome and explore other potential treatment alternatives

Digital Photos are taken and your Cosmetic Dentist will also assess for treatment limitations.  The photos will be processed and expected outcomes visually created to show you what results you could expect.  The Digital Smile Preview is made using special dental imaging software to carefully alter the image whilst ensuring the simulated preview is actually achievable in the final result.

This is a visual mockup, so whilst treatment outcomes will be similar, outcomes cannot be guaranteed.  You can also see other patient photos from our library of past cases to understand what similar patient outcome were like.


3d Cad-cam Digital Smile Simulation

Using the 3Shape Smile Studio, from a 3d optical scan of your mouth we are able to highlight aesthetic concerns in your smile. From there you will be shown a 3d simulation of proposed changes to your smile and from there a 3d printed design of your mouth will be created in our Stratasys Dental Printer.  This can transfer into your mouth so that you will get a real life preview of your new smile before proceeding with the actual treatment. 

3d Waxup

Following a Digital Smile Preview, a 3D Wax-up is created which transforms a mould taken of your teeth into a waxed up version of your new smile.  Not only does this allow our team to plan your treatment and show you expected teeth shapes, but it allows for you to leave on the day of treatment with your new smile in provisional materials so that you can trial the new shapes.  Over the following days we will make alterations from your feedback before finalising the permanent veneer or crown shapes.

The 3d Waxup is created in our Dental Laboratory.
