What Is Digital Smile Design?
Last Thursday, I met a new patient, Sandra from Edgecliff. She came in for a smile consultation, and she will be upgrading her smile with 10 porcelain veneers and laser gum treatment to correct her gummy smile.
I explained to her how we use Digital Smile Design as part of our smile makeover process. Knowing that she will get to see her smile before the procedure gave her the peace of mind to go ahead with the treatment.
A lot of patients have never heard of DSD, or Digital Smile Design, so I thought I’ll make a quick video about it.
Digital Smile Design is a very innovative way to ensure that before we do any cosmetic dentistry, we can show you how the final result will look on you.
The process of doing DSD involves taking some photos and videos of your face, your mouth and your teeth. We will also use our intraoral scanner to scan your teeth, so we have a 3D model to work with.
The DSD software uses artificial intelligence as part of the design process. However, there is an artistic element to it that computers can’t replace. This is why you and the dentist will work together to fine-tune all the little details to ensure we design a smile that suits you and your personality.
This is also what makes the difference from one cosmetic dentist to another. It is that artistic approach that makes the difference to how your smile will look. Cosmetic dentistry is really a fusion of science, engineering, and art.
I hope this video gave you a better understanding of Digital Smile Design, and how it helps as part of your smile makeover process.
If you’re looking at upgrading your smile with a smile makeover that is natural and beautiful, we’d love to look after you.
