Digital Smile Design Dr Christian Coachman and Dylan Lin

What if you could personally design your own new smile?

At Taylor Street Dental, we’re proud to offer a revolutionary new service called Digital Smile Design, or DSD.

Developed by renowned Brazilian dentist Christian Coachman, DSD is a dental treatment planning tool.  It involves high-tech imaging, along with the latest in three-dimensional modelling, to capture your smile digitally.

We then work with you to design dental solutions to create a bespoke smile designed especially for you.

If you’ve always wanted to change something about your smile, this is the time to do it. With the DSD process, you’re in the driver’s seat, working with us in the design for the best possible result before any actual dental work goes ahead.

fear of going to the dentist

“No offence Dylan, but I really DON’T like dentists.”

I hear this a lot and it breaks my dental heart – but then it is usually followed up by:

“Don’t take it personally, I’m just VERY nervous…”

Then my achey-breaky dental heart feels a little bit better!
