Digital Imaging – North Andover, MA
A Preview of Your New Smile
Plenty of people dream of improving their smile, but sometimes it’s hard to know exactly how the process will turn out. This can be pretty daunting, since any changes to your teeth could have a huge impact on your self-image as well as your confidence. Fortunately, the end results don’t have to be a complete surprise; Dr. Beliveau can give you a glimpse into the future with the power of digital imaging. Special software allows us to manipulate a digital photograph of your smile to show what it’ll look like after the treatment. From teeth whitening to bonding, from veneers to full smile makeovers, digital imaging technology can give you plenty of reasons to smile about your upcoming treatment.
The Digital Imaging Process
After performing a complete oral examination and reviewing your goals for cosmetic treatment with you, we can begin creating a treatment plan. This is where the digital imaging process begins. We take multiple photos of your smile and upload them onto a computer. We can then alter them to demonstrate what the smile will look like after specific changes have been made. Many of our patients enjoy this process and love seeing different potential versions of their smiles. You can bring the pictures home with you to show your friends and family so that they can give you feedback, or you can simply use them as a reference if you need more time to make a decision.
It’s important to have a firm grasp on whether a given procedure is right for you before you move forward with it, and digital imaging can give you valuable insight on whether the end results will be everything you hoped for.
