Working Together for a Better Smile
Using the Digital Smile Design process allows you and Dr. Skinner to see how different treatment options will affect your smile. Your input on what makes you look the best allows our team to tailor your treatment, so you can look and feel your best while smiling in confidence.
What Is Digital Smile Design? How Does It Work?
Digital Smile Design is a breakthrough cutting-edge technology that allows you to participate in planning your smile makeover. Our cosmetic dental team can work with you to create a new digital smile plan and show you how we can improve your smile using your digital images.
We start with a 3D laser scanner, 3D x-ray, specialized high-resolution photography, and detailed videos to fully digitize your smile and entire head so that we can plan the best possible smile for your face. So you can smile with absolute confidence.
The Fibonacci Series and the Golden Ratio of Beauty
Have you ever wondered why millions of people go to the Louvre museum in Paris to see the Mona Lisa? Why do most people consider that to be the most beautiful painting of a human ever?
The answer is that Leonard Davinci knew some things most people don’t. That is the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio. The Fibonacci series of mathematical numbers that are found everywhere in nature, wherever there is life on earth. Count the spirals in a seashell, count the petals on a flower. Wherever there is life there is the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio.
Mathematicians were surprised to learn that if you add up the Fibonacci series to infinity you always get a number called the Golden Ratio.
What does that have to do with the Mona Lisa? Humans innately perceive the Golden Ratio as beauty. We do it unconsciously, wherever we see the Golden Ratio we perceive that as beauty. That’s why we perceive flowers as beautiful.
If you measure virtually every distance on the Mona Lisa, you find the Golden Ratio. For instance, by drawing a rectangle around her face, we can see that it is indeed golden. If we divide that rectangle with a line drawn across her eyes, we get another golden ratio, meaning that the proportion of her head length to her eyes is golden.
There are dozens of other golden examples that can be drawn on the rest of the Mona Lisa, like from her neck to the top of her hands. Turns out Leonardo was a lot smarter than most people realize.
Awesome Dentist. The Dr is Very professional and Straightforward of what needs to be done. The team is just GREAT and the best customer service. Your health comes before everything. I live 30 minutes away, but I’m more comfortable coming to this dental clinic than the One across my Street… I highly recommend Hillsboro Dental Excellence to my friends and family.5/5
