What is the Digital Smile Design (DSD) Process
Digital Smile Design is a process where your dental and facial records are taken and analyzed. It involves digital photography, dynamic video recording and advanced digital analysis of the records to enable the dentist to design and present an acceptable design for action.
Once this data is collected the restorative result of any treatment can be pre-planned and developed into a mock-up so that you can see the results before you commit to any treatment.
A physical representation of the proposed smile design is built over your existing teeth using special dental materials; this requires no tooth preparation. This allows you the opportunity to test drive the proposed smile design before any invasive treatment can begin.
The first step is arranging your consultation with Taylor Street Dental. In the initial consultation, we will carry out the digital analysis of your teeth and capture the relevant digital information to be able to carry out Digital Smile Design. Analysis of your face and smile symmetry using photos, x-rays and videos. This is used to plan and determine your ideal smile with you.
When you return for your second appointment your will “test drive” your new smile. You will try on a mold of your new teeth to find out what your new teeth and smile will look like and feel before any treatment is started. You will be able co-design and advise any alterations required. We will photograph and video you from all angles to make sure the teeth, size, shape and colour match with your facial features in harmony. Creating a smile to match your personality.
