Digital Smile Design
What is Digital Smile Design?
Digital Smile Design - DSD is the process of enhancing or restoring your smile using digital imagery, video and 3D modelling to visualise what your smile will look like after the treatment plan.
You are involved in the planning process – making you the co-designer of your treatment.
You tell us what you like and don’t like about your current smile and we work with you to put together a treatment plan to achieve the natural, confident and beautiful smile you have always wanted.
What makes DSD special?
Digital Smile Design uses a more advanced way to diagnose issues with the structural components within the mouth and jaw, as well as a thorough evaluation to assess the aesthetics of the mouth.
As if seeing into the future, we will show you imagery of what your smile will look like after the DSD treatment is complete. We will be with you every step of the way, so you’ll know what to expect throughout the process.
With this advanced digital technology, it’s easier to predict accurate results and stick to the treatment plan with fewer surprises that pop up along the way.
Throughout the entire process of DSD, we will take photos and videos to track your progress.
Why Choose DSD?
We all want to have beautiful smiles. Simply resolving functional issues with the teeth, gums, and jaws isn’t always enough.
Your smile is important to the way you look and feel, so if you’re always trying to hide your teeth, this may be affecting your confidence and self-esteem.
Additionally, every dental patient is unique, and everyone has their own expectations from treatment. Applying a one-size-fits-all treatment plan isn’t going to provide the same results to each individual situation. And that’s why DSD works so well.
With DSD, you’re not limited to a single course of treatment. Instead, the focus is on what you want to achieve from your dental treatment. Those expectations are then applied to your treatment plan.
When your treatment is complete, you’ll have a beautiful and natural smile that complements your features and helps you feel more confident in the way you look.
Our DSD dentists are more than just dental experts — they have artistic vision and the right skills needed to be a designer of beautiful smiles.
Is Digital Smile Design right for me?
Nearly all patients are able to use DSD treatment plans. We use digital videos and photographs to understand the relationship between your lips, gums and teeth, analysing your dental and facial proportions.
Once we have this information we work with you to start planning, discussing and showing you what your smile will ultimately look like after the procedures are complete.
If you’ve always wanted to change something about your smile, now is the time to say, you’re in control and the more you tell us, the better your result.
Each individual patient’s mouth can be clearly visualised through the use of high-tech imaging, along with the latest in three-dimensional modelling.
With a plan in place, your DSD smile designer can then create a model of your mouth and show you images of what you can expect at the end of the treatment.
