Smile Design in Richmond, VA

A bright smile can influence your life in so many ways. For example, it can increase your self-esteem and confidence, which can even impact your career and relationships.  A smile you feel confident about can help you feel more at ease, not only with yourself, but with friends and strangers, too.  At Capital Dental Design we believe in optimal oral health and the power of your smile as a reflection of your positivity, and a vehicle for joy.

If you hold back on smiling for pictures or in front of people because you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, whether because they are crooked, decayed, or missing, you can take the first step in removing this worry by scheduling a consultation for smile design at Capital Dental Design in Richmond. Using our digital imaging technology, we can help design the smile you have always wanted by showing you how that smile will look and making adjustments as necessary until you find the smile you most desire that is tailored to your personality and facial structure.

Digital Smile Design Process

Digital Smile Design is modern cosmetic dentistry for the here and now. With this technology, a dentist like Dr. Forbes becomes an architect of the smile, and a new level of precision is now able to be achieved. Cutting-edge technology, such as 3D printing is used to expedite the timeline to your new smile as well.

Using this Dental Smile Design technology, Dr Forbes can offer you an exact preview of your perfect smile before doing any actual dental work. We even offer “Smile Donor” technology, which means we can base your smile on another smile that you love, such as the smile of your favorite celebrity, a family member, or even your younger self. If you have a picture of a smile that you admire, bring it with you to your appointment. In designing your smile, we will take your entire face into consideration, including such details as the shape of your eyes and the lines of your cheeks, as well as the overall shape of your mouth and your gum and bone structure. Unlike traditional cosmetic dentistry, which has been known to sometimes produce artificial-looking results, the level of attention to details that we take means that our Digital Smile Design creates a seamlessly natural look.

Once we have settled on a design that you are happy with, we will develop a treatment plan. With this plan in place, we can typically give you the smile you have always desired in as little as two visits.

What Procedures are Necessary for Smile Design?

Once we have arrived at a design that is right for you, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to give you the smile you have always desired. Every plan will be slightly different, but some of the most common procedures performed as part of the smile design process include:

  • Invisalign: A wonderful option for correcting a crooked smile.
  • Dental implants: One of the most effective and durable ways to correct missing teeth. The crown of the implant is adhered to a titanium post that acts as a replacement for the root of your tooth.
  • Composite fillings, inlays, onlays and crowns: Effective methods for correcting teeth that have become damaged.
  • Dental veneers: An effective method for correcting gaps between teeth and/or correcting tooth stains. Veneers can also be used to correct the size and shape of your teeth to give you the look you have always wanted.
  • Full mouth restoration services such as bone grafts and dental implants can yield dramatic results.

Cost of Smile Design

Several factors will determine the total cost of smile design, the biggest being what procedures are necessary for your treatment plan. Prior to scheduling any procedure, we will discuss the anticipated costs, verify your benefits (if applicable) to determine out-of-pocket costs, and answer any questions you may have about billing.
