Smile Makeover – Northgate, WA

Get to Know Your Smile Before Treatment!

If you’ve ever been hesitant about pursuing treatment because you’re unable to imagine what your smile would look like afterwards, you certainly aren’t alone. The fact is many patients find it difficult to complete treatment for this very reason, which is why Dr. Sage offers Digital Smile Design technology to make envisioning your future treatment all the more easier. This technology not only gives you a clear picture of your future smile, but improves every step of your overall treatment for our office as well. Here’s how!

What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design is an advanced dental software that allows dentists to show patients an accurate representation of what their smile will look like after a specific treatment. Whether you’re receiving cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers or restorative solutions like crowns or dental implants, the Digital Smile Design software makes it easy to imagine what your smile will look like in a number of different situations. You’ll be able to see what it looks like when you’re smiling normally, laughing and even when speaking. This ensures you have access to the whole picture of your future smile, not simply what it will look like when staring into a mirror.

How We Ensure the Most Successful Treatment

In the past, dentists would hardly be able to plan as well when it came to smile makeovers. But just like how you wouldn’t build a house without an architect and engineers creating blueprints, you shouldn’t begin a smile makeover without a detailed plan. The Digital Smile Design system allows the dentist to act as the architect and engineer of your smile before beginning any physical construction.

The way Digital Smile Design works is quite simple. After using a camera to capture your smile as well as other characteristics, you’ll have the opportunity to tell us how you want your smile to look and any specific needs you have regarding your smile makeover. Then, we’ll design the most ideal smile for your face. Once complete, we’ll display your smile on a nearby monitor for closer viewing.

The Benefits of Using Digital Smile Design

For many, undergoing a complex restorative or cosmetic procedure can be a daunting process. This is especially the case when the cost of treatment feels up in the air. With Digital Smile Design, you get a full preview of your new smile before any stage of treatment begins. If you need to make adjustments, Dr. Sage will hear your concerns and do his best to meet your accommodations.

Additionally, the cost of your treatment is determined once we create your smile preview. Even some jewelers cannot create a preview of your new wedding ring until you’ve paid to have it arranged, but that doesn’t have to be the case for your new smile!
