At Maria Cardenas DMD, we believe a stunning smile has the potential to change your life. It can impact the way the world looks at you—and more importantly, the way you look at yourself. A beautiful, healthy smile can give you confidence to see yourself in a new light and allow you to express your full potential.
We are guided by technology and driven by artistry. The latest techniques in smile design are supplemented by years of training and a true love for our craft. We have experience and expertise in delivering world class smile makeover treatment, guaranteed by the five smile makeover standards. And because we will strive for nothing less than excellence, the first step of any smile makeover at our clinic is digitization.
What is patient ‘digitization’ and how does it work?
Digitization is a process through which we gather all your unique, one-of-a kind information about your teeth and your mouth. It includes meticulous detail and measurements which allows us to prepare your treatment and design a smile that is right for you.
During this process we use the most powerful technology and latest methods to capture your individual data with comfort, safety, accuracy and speed.
We gather your information in all or a combination of the following ways:
- Intraoral scan
- Cone Beam CT scan
- Facial scan
- Digital bite analysis
Why do we gather so much information?
- Because it lets us build a digital 3D model of your face, mouth and teeth as the foundation for your new smile design.
- Because we want to ensure a holistic smile makeover - not just superficial changes.
- Because we take into account the dimensions of your facial features to design a beautiful, balanced smile.
- Because digital impressions are fast and exceptionally accurate (no more impression paste that makes you gag!)
- Because smiles aren’t static, they move! So we use video to analyze them in motion.
- Because comprehensive information lets us plan a smile makeover that is esthetic and the best for your health.
Why is this important for you to consider when researching your new smile designer?
