What Is a Smile Design Specialist?

If you are planning to give yourself a well-deserved makeover, there are various specialists that you can reach out to, including your cosmetic dentist, AKA, smile design specialist. Designing a smile, however, extends far beyond removing plaque buildup during your twice-yearly dental appointments.

Here at William Ralstin D.D.S. in Fort Worth, TX, your smile design specialists, Dr. William Ralstin and Dr. Adam Furman offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to change the color, size, and shape of your smile.

What Does It Take to Design a Smile?

Professional teeth whitening is just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re looking for dramatic and long-lasting results, you have the option of completely making over your gums and teeth. Designing the perfect smile involves examining and redesigning the position of your gums and teeth, and how your lips frame them. For instance, if too much of your gums show whenever you smile, you can opt for crown lengthening, also called a gum lift.

Likewise, you can reshape your teeth to better fit your smile. Over time, chewing and/or bad habits like nail-biting and teeth grinding can wear down the teeth. Fortunately, rounding the front teeth’ edges and lengthening them could help bring youthfulness to your face. To remedy this, your cosmetic dentist can use dental veneers or dental crowns.

Besides shaping your teeth, did you know that veneers could even give you that natural pouty look? This is usually done by increasing the thickness of the dental veneers, making your lips more prominent and pouty. In addition, if you’re having issues with unsightly metal fillings or crowns, these can be removed and replaced or capped over with tooth-colored fillings or crowns.

Careful Planning is Key to a Perfect Smile

While smile design specialists can do virtually anything required to perfect your smile, careful planning is needed to ensure accurate, natural-looking, and lasting results. Your smile design specialist in Fort Worth, TX, will conduct an extensive evaluation of your oral health before even recommending treatments that will benefit you. This is to make certain that everything is healthy. Otherwise, you’ll require extra treatments before the smile makeover procedures can be performed.

It’s also vital to keep in mind that as with most things in life, you will need time to achieve the perfect smile, particularly if you’re undergoing multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments. Thankfully, the end result will all be worth it.
