Lake Nona Smile Design

What is smile design?

Every patient of ours is unique and we believe that they should receive personalized care focused on their individual needs and treatment goals. Our smile design team is lead by Dr. Veneuska Ocando, a highly-skilled and experienced prosthodontist with a passion for aesthetic dentistry, a gentle touch, and an artistic eye.

Dr. Ocando works closely with our oral and maxillofacial facial surgeon, Dr. Andonis Terezides, as well as other dental specialists including orthodontists, endodontists, and periodontists. Dr. Ocando only works with trusted labs and experienced ceramists and technicians to produce consistent results that are often described by patients, their friends and family members, and other dentists as “beautiful, life-like, realistic, stunning, life-changing, amazing, and incredible.”

We only use experienced dental labs and experienced technicians capable of providing high-quality, aesthetic, customized solutions for our patients.

Conditions we treat with smile design include:

  • Chipped, cracked, or rough surfaced teeth
  • Darkened, discolored, or stained teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Mildly crooked teeth
  • Fillings that don’t match the color of your teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Uneven gumline around the teeth
  • Teeth covered by too much gum tissue- aka “gummy smile”

Smile design treatments are not just intended to be beautiful; they must be comfortable, long-lasting, and look and feel natural.

A critical aspect of achieving proper and long-lasting results is ensuring that the bite is correctly aligned. This is vital for your comfort while chewing as well as to help prevent wear on your teeth or damage to your restorations. Unaligned bites can lead to TMJ problems, as well as facial pain.

By using time-tested and scientifically-proven techniques along with innovative technology, we are able to improve oral health, rehabilitate diseased mouths, and restore beautiful smiles to our patients.

Smile design often involves one or more procedures to create your new smile, which may include crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, and cosmetic bonding to repair and replace damaged or missing tooth structure. If teeth are no longer restorable or missing, then dental implants may play a role.

As a specialist prosthodontist, Dr. Ocando has undergone several years of accredited advanced post-doctoral residency training in order to attain the knowledge and skills necessary to diagnose and treat the most complex reconstructive and cosmetic dental cases. Our doctors are experts in Lake Nona prosthodontics and available to guide you through the entire process.

Our team uses dental implant planning and simulation software for precision dental implant placement in order to ensure the desired prosthetic and cosmetic result is achieved.

Attention to detail is very important to us. The diagnostic and preparation phase is the most critical period where we take our time to ensure that we understand your vision and what is necessary to achieve the smile you desire. We use digital x-rays, 3D-cone beam CT scan imaging, high-resolution photos, analog and digital models to replicate your bite, smile design software, and even facial cephalometric principles to simulate and design your various smile design options.

From there, we are able to provide photographic simulation options and even try-in models of your proposed new smile. This gives our patients the opportunity to truly understand and visualize the proposed new smile and, subsequently, have the opportunity to accept the treatment plan or request adjustments. We want to make sure our patients are satisfied before we proceed with definitive treatment.
