What is Smile Design?
Smile design is the process of making teeth and gums that have deteriorated aesthetically due to various reasons as natural and beautiful as possible, taking into account the face shapes and needs of the patients. Smile design, which is a multidisciplinary approach, is carried out by applying many processes together.
Why is Smile Design Done?
Smile design application is done to correct the shape and deformity, disproportion and tooth discoloration problems seen in the teeth and gums. Even in the absence of any of these problems, it is sometimes done for purely aesthetic concerns when the person wants to have a more aesthetic or different tooth structure.
How to Smile Design?
First of all, it is very important to understand the aesthetic expectations of the patient correctly and to determine the needs correctly in smile design. Problems are determined and plans are made on the models prepared through the measurements taken from the patient's mouth. Afterwards, measurements are made using special programs in the computer environment with the oral and facial photographs of the patients and the fit for the face shape is calculated. The most approximate images that will occur after the treatment are presented to the patient with programs and temporary restorations prepared in accordance with the original in the patient's mouth and their opinions are taken.
How Smile Design Should Be?
While designing the smile, the patient's teeth are evaluated together with the entire face area. Since the characteristics of people are different, smile design is an application that differs in person. While planning, the patient's gender, age, facial features and expectation should be considered.
Smile Design can correct a wide variety of cosmetic and practical dental problems. The smile design steps and desired results will reflect the unique needs and personal goals of each patient. Therefore, different smile designs are planned for everyone.

Smile design options:
A specially adapted Smile Design plan may include but is not limited to:
Teeth Whitening, Dental Crowns, Porcelain Veneers, Composite Veneers, Dental Implants, Gingival Shaping and Cosmetic Bonding
What is teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is the safest and most effective way to achieve significantly brighter and whiter teeth. Teeth become up to ten tons brighter. Over-the-counter tooth whitening products can make the gums overly sensitive, abrasive the tooth surface and give short-lived or inconsistent results. Store-bought teeth whitening treatments cannot achieve these results!
What is laminated veneers?
Laminated Veneer veneers are a great way to create beautiful symmetry when the person smiles. Laminated veneers cover the front surface of the teeth to obtain the ideal tooth shape and color. Each laminate is specially shaped to achieve the desired look of the patient. Laminated Veneers are also applied to enhance the appearance of cracked, discolored, cracked and broken teeth.
What is dental implants?
Dental implants are permanent solutions that restore the patient's comfortable smile and chewing ability. Dental implants are compatible with the color of natural teeth. If patients have discolored or amorphous groups of teeth, a dental bridge helps to attach the implant to the dental crowns that will cover those teeth.
