A quote from one of our users says it ALL

Dr. Alan Mohr, Massapequa Park, NY sent us an email that said:

“In 2016,  26 out of the 29 cosmetic cases we presented  were accepted by using Envision A Smile‘s cosmetic imaging.  I don’t present a cosmetic case without it.  My patients and my laboratory love it!

This photo was ‘imaged’ with Envision A Smile cosmetic imaging software to show the patient how her smile could look with Dr. Mohr’s plan of treating her full upper arch.  She accepted the treatment and is on her way to this new look!

Helping patients understand what you already know is so important! But how?

As a dentist, do you ever feel like words cannot express what you ‘envision’ for your patient’s smile?  Of course you do, because it is like trying to describe a red rose.  It’s red, it’s on a long prickly stem, and it’s beautiful.  Does that do the trick?  Uh, no.   Showing a picture of a white rose would ‘help’, but the patient still can’t quite get what you are talking about because there is so much to tell about a red rose.  And in the dental office, showing a patient a beautiful smile in someone else’s mouth is sort of the same thing.  The patient might think ‘that can never happen for me’, even though you are saying “yes it can”.  Words just can’t do it and you might end up feeling like you are ‘selling your wares’.

Well, cosmetic imaging will show the whole story.  Your patients will be able to see a new, beautiful and customized smile in their own face…what could be better?  With Envision A Smile, you can match the anatomy and space of the patient’s teeth so you are showing a very realistic outcome.  And then, your lab person can use the imaged view to fabricate the wax up…just another bonus.

Envision A Smile is now available three different ways;  purchased outright, as a software-as-a-service on a monthly basis, or as a custom order where we do the imaging for you.  What keeps you from trying this?  We are pretty sure your patients will LOVE this, your schedule will love this, and you will get to do more of what you love to do.  What’s NOT to love?

Try it today.  We are ready to show you an online demonstration at your convenience.  Or try our custom imaging service to see the patient’s reaction.  But be prepared;  you may see tears because the patient will see what he or she has always dreamed of.  No words can explain that.

Why should a dentist use Envision A Smile?

Dentists use Envision A Smile cosmetic imaging software to help patients understand the proposed treatment plan.  Patients don’t understand the parameters of dentistry, and most probably don’t want to!  But when it comes to cosmetic treatment, the patient may be very nervous about a change in their smile.  Envision A Smile puts those fears away by showing what the finished dentistry can look like before treatment ever begins.  Wouldn’t you want to see a car before you buy it?  Cosmetic dentistry is like that too.  It is an investment the patient is making to look and feel fresher or  younger while the restorative aspect of the treatment may be just as important.

When the patient and dentist sit down to discuss the treatment using Envision A Smile, all of the sudden the end is in view.   The patient can more clearly understand and ask questions or make comments on the design.

Let’s not forget the laboratory who is going to fabricate the veneers or crowns.  With the imaged views in hand, everyone is on the same page!

How does a patient know what will look good in cosmetic dentistry?

For a patient, it is a big decision to have cosmetic dentistry done to enhance his or her smile. It can take years off the face, increase confidence and improve the overall oral health of the patient.  But it is not inexpensive.  How does a patient decide to move forward?  It can be very risky to believe that the dentist has the same taste in what the patient think looks good.  We all have preferences, and maybe there are some ideas that the patient doesn’t have words to describe .  What  if the  patient has a photograph of a smile from a magazine that she likes and she wants that look for her smile?   Clinical parameters might dictate certain aspects of the restorations that don’t allow for the design that the patient has in mind.  So  many things can be difficult to communicate in dentistry, because the patient doesn’t have the dental knowledge or vocabulary to rely on.  And before/after pictures of other people don’t do much for the patients imagination because it is another persons face!

Here’s an idea!  Why not use cosmetic imaging with Envision A Smile?  By taking photographs of the patient’s face, smile and side view, the new smile can be designed with all things considered: the clinical parameters, the patients desires, and the practitioners desires.  Voila! Now, the patient can relax because she knows that the dentist knows and understands what she likes.  The approximate shade of the teeth can be shown in different levels of brightness and small changes like the shape of the incisal (biting) edge of the front teeth.  And, she can go home with  photos of the proposed treatment.  THIS is how a patient can decide if cosmetic dentistry is for them!  Now it is only down to the cost of treatment and with the photos in hand, she already knows she wants it.

Envision A Smile helps the patient and the dentist because communication is everything, and pictures are worth a thousand words.   Once the treatment is accepted by the patient, the dentist takes molds to send to the laboratory along with Envision A Smile’s imaged views so the lab can follow the design.  Although it would be impossible for the final outcome to be ‘exactly the same as the imaged views’ (because the photos are only 2 dimensional) the outcome will be very much the same as the imaged views.

 

Envision A Smile offers a cosmetic imaging software or a service for imaging.

Cosmetic imaging used as a great communication tool between dentists and patients

If you were going to buy a new car, would you buy it unseen, with just a description from the dealership like: “its streamlined, sleek, red and shiny…you will love it!”.  Probably not.  Todays consumer is far more educated and does quite a bit of research before making a major purchase.  Envision A Smile is the perfect tool for dentists to show the patient what the treatment plan will look like, before the treatment even begins.  This opens meaningful dialog that perhaps the patient never considered on things like shape, color and texture.  The dentist can create a ‘virtual smile design’ for the patient and now everyone is on the same page.  Brilliant!

Here are some examples of imaging with Envision A Smile:
