New IvoSmile App: Virtual mirror enhances consultations with patients

IvoSmile is a dental app that gives patients a picture of what they would look like after a cosmetic dental makeover or a tooth whitening procedure. Augmented reality makes it possible: the app allows dentists to present various solutions and improvements to their patients before deciding on a cosmetic procedure. Patients can see themselves with their dental makeover on an iPad in live mode - like in a virtual mirror.

A disharmonious smile line, teeth that are out of line or unsightly discolourations: many patients consult their dentists because of aesthetic concerns. IvoSmile is a dental app that allows patients to obtain a quick and realistic physical picture of what they would look like after a cosmetic dental procedure. Dentists can use the app to create a proposal for a dental makeover and present it to their patients as a still picture or a video sequence. The patients can see how the enhanced teeth would look on their face whilst speaking and smiling - an impressive visualisation that comes without any strings attached.

A way of helping patients to decide

Smile imaging helps patients to gain a better idea of the results of a dental procedure. It helps them decide whether or not they want to commit to the detailed planning of a cosmetic makeover. One of the services that can be viewed on the IvoSmile app is tooth whitening. This helps dentists advise patients on the optimum degree of brightness.

More effective practice-lab communication

The app offers an additional advantage: it enhances the collaboration between the practice and the lab. Dentist and technician have a clear idea of the patient's expectations due to the visualisation of the prospective outcome and will therefore find it easier to achieve the desired result. Practice-lab collaboration has just become more effective.

The IvoSmile app runs on Apple devices with a 64-bit CPU and iOS 11 or later.
