Digital Smile Design

At Unidental, we believe that a beautiful smile is a healthy smile. That's why, as well as general dental treatments to improve the overall health of your teeth and gums, our dental team are dedicated to improving the appearance of your smile to improve your self-confidence.

Missing, chipped or misaligned teeth, discoloured or receding gums and stained teeth due to habits such as drinking tea or coffee or smoking can all cause you to lose confidence in your smile.

At Unidental practices dentists will work together to determine a treatment plan that best fits your personal needs.

We are proud to offer our advanced Digital Smile Design system to patients; this system uses the latest computer technology to enable you to see exactly what your new smile will look like before you even start your treatment. This advanced digital planning also means that our dentists will be able to see any potential problems or issues before they arise, meaning no unexpected surprises (or costs) during your treatment.

Digital Smile Design starts with a thorough series of diagnostic tests, utilising photographs, x-rays and models, before 2D and 3D models are created so you can see what your new smile will look like. The 3D models will be used to study your facial aesthetics and anatomy, and a full mock-up will be made and placed in your mouth to check that you are happy and to make any necessary adjustments.

Only when you are completely happy with your mock-up will your treatment begin, using various products from our advanced, digital-based treatment packages, including orthodontic and implantology work.

We offer FREE consultations on Digital Smile Design, so if you want to improve your confidence in your smile, book your appointment today.

You need a complete set of photographic and audiovisual records, including x-rays and models, so that each case is individually analysed and planned.

After a complete facial assessment and dental aesthetics analysis, we'll create both 2D and 3D mock-ups of your smile, showing you what the final result will be.

All the information from the Digital Smile Design is transferred to 3D images (virtual models) so that your individual anatomy can be studied, and so that a multi-disciplinary team can plan the treatments you require. We'll check that this planning matches the Digital Smile Design, then we'll create a virtual mock-up of your smile.

We send the information from the virtual mock-up to the laboratory, where a 3D model is printed and clear casts are created to make a mock-up that can be placed in your mouth.

The best way to test our aesthetic creation is to let you place it in your mouth. You'll instantly see the positive change this makes to your smile, while we'll also be able to make any adjustments as necessary, using the mock-up to guide us through the whole treatment process.
