In today’s world, we don’t have to accept the teeth our genetics and circumstances have given us. With major advancements in cosmetic dentistry, we can alter the appearance of our teeth and smile and completely transform the look of our entire face.
Digital Smile Design is an advanced approach to the cosmetic dental treatment of a patient. It is the blending of technology and effective communication whereby the whole face and facial expressions of the patient are considered. Digital Smile Design uses videography and digital technology to aid the treatment process and to engage the patient in the process as well. Dr. Murchie trained with the Digital Smile Design group and is pleased to share the method with his patients and staff.
Dr. Murchie will begin the consultation appointment with a careful and thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and facial characteristics. Even your personality will be considered. Dr. Murchie will use digital equipment to take images of your face, smile, and mouth and reference them during the consultation and throughout the cosmetic treatment process. The technology allows us to simulate treatment options so you can see what the outcome will be without ever having to experience the actual procedure. Digital Smile Design allows you and Dr. Murchie to design your new and improved smile together!
Once you and Dr. Murchie agree on the treatment plan your appointments can be scheduled. The length of time required for your dental makeover will depend on the treatments chosen and how many will be performed. Common cosmetic procedures include dental veneers, teeth whitening to brighten discolored teeth, gum line corrections, and dental crowns. The final result can be life-changing and at the very least can provide you with a confident smile.
Advanced technology in cosmetic dentistry offers you a chance to see your smile in all of its perfection. With Digital Smile Design, Dr. Murchie and the team at Goochland Dentistry can simulate your ideal smile and plan the dental treatment necessary to make the image on the computer, the image you see in the mirror!
