What Is Digital Smile Design?
Digital Smile Design (DSD) is an innovative dental treatment planning tool that allows us to combine science and artistry to create a comprehensive plan to deliver the smile of your dreams. Whether you have discolored, chipped, crooked, missing, or misaligned teeth, DSD will allow you to choose and visualize your new, improved smile before starting any treatment – you’ll know exactly what to expect.
DSD involves the use of videos, photos, and temporary mock-ups to get a better sense of your teeth, gums, and facial features and how they work together to create your ideal smile. We’ll also take into account factors such as tooth color, alignment, and proportion before determining the ideal solution for your smile.
The Digital Smile Design Process
Here’s a look at your Digital Smile Design Process:
- Capturing Digital Images of Your Smile: Dr. Hill will start your Digital Smile Design process by taking 3D images, photos, and videos of every angle of your mouth using our intraoral scanner and importing them into the DSD software.
- Video Analysis: Your lip movements in natural speech differ from a posed smile. A video analysis will evaluate how your smile relates to your face in everyday speech.
- Smile Design: Dr. Hill will create a custom plan with the end results in mind. Your treatment plan may include one or a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions to deliver your ideal smile.
- Visualizing Your Smile: The advanced DSD software will give you a glimpse of what you can expect with treatment. You’ll have the opportunity to approve or make changes to the 3D models and mock-up images of your new, improved smile.
- Transforming Your Smile: Once you’re happy with the expected outcomes, we will start the restoration process. Your treatments may include teeth whitening, dental veneers, cosmetic bonding, Lumineers, dental implants, dental crowns, Invisalign, or a combination of procedures.
What Is the Digital Smile Design Advantage?
Digital Smile Design takes predictability and patient communication to the next level. The innovative technology allows Dr. Hill to show you exactly what your smile will look like after your transformation. DSD leaves no room for miscommunication, lack of clarity, or unanswered questions. It ensures we are all on the same page, enhancing patient satisfaction.
