In this blog, you will read more about helpful tips you need to consider when choosing a cosmetic dentist in Cape Town to transform your smile.
1. Choose a cosmetic dentist with Digital Smile Design Experience.
Deciding on a cosmetic dentist for your smile makeover journey can be overwhelming, especially if you’re interested in the cosmetic dentist’s training and experience with smile makeover cases.
Enamel Dentistry is the only official Digital Smile Design clinic in South Africa with Dr Mark Bowes, a DSD master and instructor, and Dr Sheryl Smithies (a DSD practitioner) as our smile architects. You can read more about their experience on Our Team Page. Digital Smile Design is a unique approach to dentistry, and only a handful of dentists have the necessary training in this advanced approach to dentistry.
2. Ask your cosmetic dentist to explain their 5 Smile Makeover Standards.
In general, consumers rely on a set of industry standards to confirm the authenticity and value of a product or service. At Enamel Dentistry, we have five uncompromising Smile Makeover Standards that will guarantee the quality of your smile makeover.
Our 5 Smile Makeover Standards are:
- 3D facial design
- Digital treatment planning
- Trial smile
- Guided digital dentistry
3. Enquire about the technology that the clinic uses.
Technology has a crucial impact on the quality of treatment that cosmetic dentists can provide to their patients. Moreover, technology contributes to more efficient and accurate treatment outcomes. At Enamel Dentistry, we house a variety of world-class dental technology to ensure we offer the best possible treatments for our patients. Read more about our range of technologies here.
4. Ensure that the cosmetic dentist delivers natural restorations.
What does it mean to provide a smile makeover with a natural outcome? Natural restorations are one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a cosmetic dentist. Some cosmetic dentists offer smile makeovers. However, patients complain about the fake-looking outcome, or their new smile does not complement their natural facial features.
When we plan and design your smile, at Enamel Dentistry, we make sure it is in harmony with your facial features to create a naturally balanced, custom-made smile design. We mimic the natural shapes and curves of your natural teeth to ensure your new smile is natural-looking.
5. Ask to see examples of previous smile makeover cases.
Before you consider asking a cosmetic dentist to transform your smile, it is good practice to ask them to show their previous smile makeover cases.
We will walk you through possible treatment options during your consultation with us and show examples of how our smile architects provided life-changing results to previous patients.
6. Ask if they can show the final result before beginning with the treatment.
When you decide to partner with a cosmetic dentist, we suggest you enquire whether they ccan show you the end result before surgery.
With Digital Smile Design, we’re able to create a mock-up of your smile for you to try and see before we start with treatment. During this phase, you can discuss any necessary changes to make you feel comfortable and confident about your new smile. We use advanced 3D technology to visually showcase your new smile so that there are no surprises at the end. You co-design your smile with one of our smile architects.
