Digital Smile Design
Modern technology is taking dentistry to a different level. With the help of computer-generated imagery, it is possible to analyze a face and the facial features at the micro level, to see how the changes planned by a dentist for correctional or cosmetic purposes will appear. This allows for a more successful treatment procedure for the patient’s smile. The digital prediction of the face helps the patient to see how they will look when the procedure is complete, and also consult with the expert and suggest any changes they would like to see. This also allows for designing a perfect procedure plan along with the expert. There is more accuracy in this mode of smile makeover. The highly qualified dental experts at Medstar, with the help of modern technology, provide an array of possibilities for the patient. We have highly affordable smile design plans based on the outcomes desired by our patients.
