Patients with chipped, broken, worn, stained, misshapen, and misaligned teeth would be delighted to know that cosmetic dentistry has evolved significantly through the years. Nowadays, we also have smile makeover and digital smile design to help ensure you get that stunning smile you have always wanted.
Digital Smile Design or DSD is a process that allows dentists to design the ideal smile according to the patient’s face and to maintain the fidelity of this initial design through all stages in the process. DSD makes use of high resolution photos of the patient’s smile and teeth.
Your new smile is designed virtually and patients contribute to the process by letting your dentist know the results you want to achieve and what your expectations are. Once the design has been finalized, your dentist can better plan for the required procedures as guided by the virtual smile design.
The Remarkable Benefits of Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design has many enticing benefits. Some of the most notable include:
Dentistry is not one-size-fits-all and each patient will have different treatment needs, requirements and aesthetic taste. Digital Smile Design can help patients achieve a certain level of customization required to provide the most suitable dental treatment to different patients.
DSD uses an advanced software that creates a realistic simulation of the final results. In other words, you can see what the end result will be ahead of time. This enables both the patient and the dentist to be on the same page when it comes to the desired outcome of the dental procedures. Both parties can also relax knowing they know what to expect and they both like the possible outcome. This means no unpleasant surprises after.
When patients are shown the simulation before any procedure is done, they get the opportunity to also share their inputs. DSD also gives patients the opportunity to clearly communicate their requirements and expectations. Dentists will also have the opportunity to inform patients if the results they want are feasible.
DSD’s breakthrough technology can capture even the most minute details to ensure the process is precise. Also, since every measurement is customized, it is very unlikely that you will get the results you don’t want. With DSD, dentists can quickly identify procedures that will be required to make the smile simulation a reality and not prescribe unnecessary procedures.
Thanks to DSD’s breakthrough features, attaining that dream smile is guaranteed. With customized processes and better precision, countless patients have relied on DSD to get that enviable smile they have always wanted.
