A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as: veneers, crowns, composite fillings, tooth implants. Sometimes it requires periodontal or orthodontic procedures such as gum grafts, bone grafts, gum contouring, or braces.
At GK Dental, we take photographs of your smile and do smile design on computer. Computer imaging allows us to give you a glimpse at your smile after dental care treatment is done. We can generate a simulation of what your finished smile makeover looks like before treatment even starts. We can change with you in chair if there is anything that you don't like: color, spacing, shape of teeth. Think of this as a predictive before and after photo, but one that's very accurate.
Once you are okay with the design, we can go ahead with wax-up. A diagnostic wax-up is a diagnostic procedure in which planned designs are developed in wax on a diagnostic cast to determine optimal clinical and laboratory procedures necessary to achieve the desired esthetics and function.
