Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a modern approach to cosmetic dentistry that uses computer software to simulate the final result of a cosmetic dental procedure. This allows dentists to create a 3D model of the patient’s mouth and simulate different cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns to show the patient what their new smile could look like. The patient can then provide feedback and make any necessary adjustments until they are satisfied with the proposed design. The finalized design can then be used to create a customized treatment plan to guide the actual treatment process, ensuring that the end result closely matches the initial design. DSD can be an excellent tool for patients who are interested in cosmetic dental procedures but are unsure of what to expect or hesitant to undergo treatment.
