A beautiful smile should be in perfect harmony with the rest of your face. That’s why we use Digital Smile Design when you make the choice to improve and enhance your smile. We want to make sure the end result is as naturally perfect as possible.
Using a combination of video capture technology and 3D scanning, we can map out how your smile will look before we get to work. Traditional dental work relies on using models of your teeth which technicians then use to create your new smile. With Digital Smile Design, our technicians know exactly how your smile looks in action so there’s nothing left to the imagination. The end result is a smile that looks just as nature intended.
The beauty of digital dental techniques is the flexibility. We can use Digital Smile Design for many of our cosmetic and restorative treatments. In any case where we are making a change to your smile, we can use our digital technology to give you a chance to try on your new smile before we continue with the treatment.
We use DSD for:
During the first appointment, we take detailed digital records which are then used to create your new smile.
We will take various photographs of you smiling and at rest, along with some short videos. At this stage, we really want to capture not only your teeth/smile but also your personality! Everyone moves differently when they speak, so it is important that we can see how your mouth moves in relation to your face when talking or laughing for example.
In addition to the photographs and video clips, we will also take an intra-oral scan of your teeth which allows the new changes to be designed with millimetric precision. Together we have the option to choose what style teeth would be most suitable for you, meaning you are the co-designer of your future smile. We will trial out your new smile to ensure you are happy with the style and shapes of your new teeth. Once you are happy, we will deliver your approved design to ensure that you receive the smile you have wished for.
Using the new digital technology, the design and manufacture is done using the highest level of precision, meaning the final restorations are exactly the same as those you tried on.
Using digital scans and DSD software, together we plan and preview the possibilities for your smile.
You can even try on your new smile and see how it looks in action, before having any treatment.
