Cosmetic imaging uses a computer to digitally alter the patient’s smile by demonstrating various treatments for aesthetic results. Cosmetic imaging can be used to demonstrate the patients what cosmetic dentistry could do to enhance their smile, from simulating a simple procedure like teeth whitening to a complicated full mouth restoration. This method makes it easy for the patients to visualize their treatment options and as well as for the doctors to demonstrate and give recommendations on what treatment to choose which also has a higher rate of acceptance by the patients.
The procedure for cosmetic imaging is very simple and gives very good results.
