Virtual Smile Consult
We are going to try something new in Northern Virginia, utilizing new and commonly owned technologies. If you have a digital camera, a computer, and an internet connection, you are all set. You can take a few pictures of your smile and email it to me. I can then give you an idea of what might be possible.
Here is what you will need to do. Get your digital camera and set it in Program Mode. Turn your Flash off. This is the Lightening bolt symbol with a slash through it. If you can, boost the ISO as high as it will go, usually 800 or “High”. You will need a helper to take the picture. It is too hard to take it yourself. Have the shooter stand about a foot away and zoom in to the corners of the mouth. Take a straight-on smile and one at each side. Make sure the camera is in focus.
Wash your hands and use your index and middle fingers on each side of your mouth to retract your lips out of the way. Take two pictures here. One biting together and one slightly open so the bottom teeth show.
Email your photos to admin@cosmeticdentistfairfax. Your email will be forwarded to me to evaluate the possibilities that cosmetic dentistry can offer. I will send you a return email when that evaluation is complete.
