Digital Smile Lab is a clinician driven service. We understand the demands and limitations of dentistry, but also the potential to achieve great things when communication is optimized. We found the existing cosmetic simulation software and services to be either too limited in scope, unrealistic, difficult, time-consuming or expensive for us to be able to use them on a daily basis. We were sick of fake looking smiles transferred to our patients by Photoshop-style tools.
We know that in reality, not every patient needs full mouth rehabilitation, and often patients are looking to make smaller changes to achieve an improvement. How about replacing a crown? Doing some aesthetic crown lengthening? Replacing some aged composites? What about accurately simulating bleaching when porcelain and composite restorations are present? These were the needs we were seeing daily, and yet there were no tools to quickly, accurately and affordably demonstrate these outcomes to our patients.
This was how Digital Smile Lab was born and this strong focus on clinical realism is how we have grown to provide this service to successful dentists worldwide. We have now spent years honing the skills of our artists, building our digital library and applying the outcomes to our own treatment planning. Our patients love it, our technicians love it, we love it and so will any dentist using this tool, as they experience predictable success.
No one likes to hear a patient say no to a treatment they believe in. You will be surprised at how little time and money it can take to turn this around. We hope you enjoy the experience of far more patients saying YES to your treatment when you begin with the end in sight using the Digital Smile Lab advantage.
