Digital Smile Design

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a digital planning and communication tool used in cosmetic dentistry to create a virtual simulation of a patient’s desired smile.

It involves taking digital photographs, videos, and scans of the patient’s existing teeth, gums, and smile, and then using specialised software to create a 3D model of the patient’s mouth. This model is then used to plan and design the patient’s new smile, taking into account factors such as facial symmetry, lip position, and tooth shape and size.

The DSD process allows the dentist and patient to visualise the end result of the treatment before any procedure is performed, and to make any necessary adjustments before proceeding. This helps to ensure that the final result meets the patient’s expectations and minimizes the need for multiple revisions.

DSD can be used for a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneers, crowns, implants, orthodontics, and more. It is also used to communicate the treatment plan with dental lab technicians.
