Smile Design

Are you considering a smile design or a cosmetic dental procedure but are hesitant because you are unsure of the final outcome?

The process of smile design is an intricate and detailed procedure that takes into account intimate knowledge of dental and facial anatomy, artistic and technical acuity, and most importantly, the individual needs and desires of the patient.

Smile Design and Smile Makeover Process

The most important stage in the smile design or smile makeover process is the “aesthetic prototype”, a visualisation aid that gives prospective clients a realistic preview of the final treatment and smile design result. Dr Lazaris is unique amongst his peers because this critical stage is often omitted or delegated to laboratory technicians.

Dr Lazaris  goes to extraordinary lengths, both in the clinic and in his onsite laboratory, to personally design smiles with meticulous precision and natural harmony, and this involves a number of highly detailed processes.

  1. Detailed examination and history to determine your individual smile makeover concerns.
  2. Full photographic survey. Dr Lazaris acquires and catalogues a series of high quality digital photos  before, during and after every aesthetic case.
  3. Aesthetic evaluation. Digital photographs and plaster study models are carefully assessed and measured to determine ideal proportions, shades and textures
  4. Aesthetic prototype. A wax model of ideal tooth dimensions and configurations is individually crafted by Dr Lazaris in his laboratory and this is then transferred to your mouth in the form of a plastic clip-on aesthetic prototype. You are able to assess and modify the smile makeover prototype in real time so you can get a realistic appraisal of how your smile will appear well before any treatment is commenced. You are in complete control.

Naturally, these techniques are used only as guides, but are invaluable aids in allowing you to decide on the smile design treatment that is right for you, and eliminate any apprehension you may have about the final result. Once you have decided on the desired outcome, we can develop a personalised plan outlining details on the scope and cost of treatment to create the smile you’ve always wanted.

Once active treatment is commenced, detailed shade, texture and form analysis is undertaken to accurately and intimately reproduce natural aesthetics. Dr Lazaris utilises specialised high magnification camera equipment and filters, sophisticated colour calibration software techniques and intimate collaboration with his dental ceramists to create beautiful teeth and stunning smiles.
