What is a smile design?
One of the first concepts that comes to mind when it comes to aesthetic dentistry is “smile design”. Smile design is the process of restoring the teeth and gums, whose aesthetic appearance has deteriorated due to various reasons, to a natural and beautiful appearance as much as possible, taking into account the facial shapes and needs of the patients. Smile design, which is a multidisciplinary approach, is realized by applying many procedures together.
Which procedures does smile design include?
Since the aesthetic needs of each patient will be different, the procedures to be performed are determined individually. While determining these procedures, factors such as the patient’s facial features, gender, age and expectations are taken into consideration.
First of all, existing decayed teeth and gum diseases are treated and teeth cleaning procedures are applied. Afterwards, procedures are determined according to the needs of the patients. These procedures generally include gingivectomy (gingivectomy), teeth whitening (bleaching) methods, compensation of tooth deficiencies with implants and prosthesis applications, porcelain laminates and veneers, zirconium veneers and orthodontic treatments (wire treatment).
In addition to these; Hair transplantation in Turkey is also very popular. And it offers much cheaper, qualified and reliable healthcare services than many other parts of the world. Not only dental treatment and aesthetics, but also plastic surgery, cancer treatment and many other areas are preferred in Turkey for health tourism.
How is Smile Design done?
In smile design, it is very important to understand the patient’s aesthetic expectations correctly and to determine the needs correctly. Problems are identified and plans are made on the models prepared through the measurements taken from the patient’s mouth. Then, measurements are made using special programs in the computer environment with the intraoral and facial photographs of the patients and the harmony with the face shape is calculated. The most approximate images that will be formed after the treatment are presented to the patient with temporary restorations prepared in accordance with the programs and the patient’s mouth and their opinions are taken.
After the planning is completed, if there is no need for orthodontic treatment, the level disorders in the gums are regulated first. In cases where there are tooth deficiencies, planned implant procedures and other surgical applications deemed necessary are performed. After the healing periods of surgical applications are completed, teeth whitening procedures are applied if needed. After this stage, the visual and stylistic defects in the teeth are sometimes eliminated through aesthetic composite fillings. In cases where this method is not sufficient, porcelain laminates and veneers and zirconium veneers come into play. For porcelain laminate applications, there is usually no abrasion or minimal abrasion on the teeth. If porcelain or zirconium applications are deemed appropriate, some changes can be made by taking the patient’s ideas again in the rehearsals made during the stages. During all these gum and tooth applications and rehearsals, lip shape and contour are also taken into consideration and the targeted design is finalized.
Sometimes medical aesthetic applications are also utilized during smile design. The smile can be more prominent with applications such as dermal fillers etc. applied to the lips and facial areas.
