Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a conceptual design tool to enhance communication between dentist, patient and other interdisciplinary team members.
Digital Smile Design is a process that starts with digitisation of the patient, using new tools and technology in dentistry. Customers can be involved with the process of updating their teeth aesthetically or rebuilding their mouths functionally.
Digital Smile Design is a facially generated holistic way of looking at a patient and providing natural solutions that are incomplete harmony with the patients’ personality. Digital technology allows a dentist to digitise a patient, using intra-oral scans, digital X-rays, face scanning, photography and video and cone beam CT. These records can be layered, creating a 3 dimensional view of the patient in a way that traditional dentistry doesn’t allow. The result, when combined with a dental risk assessment called the Dental Fingerprint, provides an incredible view of the patients concerns and smile potential.
Your first appointment is the Digital Smile Design Consultation which is a 1 hour & 15 min consultation where we understand your desire for a new smile and gather digital records through photographs and digital scanning. We'll show you success stories using different treatments and materials. If you decide to move on to Digital Planning & Design we'll put the wheels in motion.
The ability to Test Drive, or try out your new smile, is a key component of Digital Smile Design. If you're not sure whether to take the next step, the DSD Test Drive gives you a chance to try before you buy.
