Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design
If you are thinking of dental veneers, a cosmetic makeover, or a full mouth of dental implants, Digital Smile Design protocols will help you achieve a better outcome and a winning smile. Thanks to technology, it’s easier for our patients to visualize the result of their treatment even before we get started.

What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design is a new technology wherein we can study the relationships between the teeth, gums, and lips of the patient in order to plan the treatment virtually. This technique was born in response to a new generation of patients with aesthetic expectations that are much more demanding and who want to see what the result of their treatment will be before even starting it.

It uses amazing software that employs digital technologies such as digital scanners to get an accurate picture of a patient’s teeth, their positions, and more accurate sizing that traditional rubber impressions can’t provide. Aside from a digital scanner, it uses patient photos and photos of them smiling to design what their smile could look like after having a particular treatment.

The dentist who practices the DSD, therefore, is not a simple dental specialist, but a “Smile Designer” who works to achieve the right balance for each patient’s face.

How does it work?

Initial Examination

Your first appointment will consist of getting to know you, your dental concerns, and your expectations. We will also take digital photographs, radiographs, and 3D scans of your teeth.

It is the best time to ask questions about the treatment you plan to have.

Digital Smile Design Day

After 1-2 weeks, your dentist (aka your smile-maker) will set an appointment to show you your very own digital smile design. We show you how your teeth or smile would look like after the treatment is done. Depending on your wants and needs, we can then begin your smile makeover treatment.

Benefits of Digital Smile Design

Would you buy a car without test driving it? Don’t you try on shoes or clothes before you tear off the tags or wear them out? Before you say “go” on a smile makeover, you should have the chance to give it a whirl in real life, or at least as close to real as possible.

Sure Dental is an exceptional practice. The staff are wonderful, incredibly professional and genuinely care about their patients. Dr Ghobrial and his staff exceed all my expectations every time I visit.

We never proceed with any veneer work or any significant cosmetic smile upgrade work without a Digital Smile Design because it gives us so much information. It allows us to assess the finished product of the smile. It allows us to see what that looks like for our patient as a part of their whole smile and their face and whether it suits their personality and their character.

We use some of the Digital Smile Design information and turn that into a 3D model to try it in a patient’s mouth before we commence with any treatment. So they get to feel and see what their new smile would look like. And we get to make adjustments early on to the design so that we can work backwards from there.

An improvement in the aesthetic planning and the design of the smile: with the Digital Smile Design the dentist plans to the millimeter all the dental treatment of the patient.
N
An improvement in communication between the dental interdisciplinary team. All specialists involved in the case, from dentists to maxillofacial surgeons to laboratories can consult and discuss at any time the ideal treatment plan.
N
An improvement in doctor-patient communication: the patient can comment on the final result and share with the specialist their doubts and concerns about the treatment. Together, they can get the ideal simulation for the final smile.

Treatments using DSD

We use Digital Smile Design for lots of things nowadays. Sometimes we’ll use Digital Smile Design for our patients that have worn down their teeth; with it, we can see what their teeth would look like if they were a bit longer.

There are several treatments wherein having Digital Smile Design can become handy, such as:

Dental Crowns

You can easily visualize how your smile will look like after fixing damaged or misshapen teeth, especially back teeth or molars

Dental Veneers

DSD can help you see a dramatic change in your smile just by having dental veneers cover the front surface of your teeth to even out colour, shape, and sizes of teeth

Dental Implants

Dental Implants in DSD can show you how it will look like when we replace a missing tooth or fill gaps in your upper or lower jaw

Dental Rehabilitation

It is necessary for all dental rehabilitation to undergo DSD to set the right expectations and plan the whole treatment

And sometimes when we need to make the decision between orthodontics and veneers, we use Digital Smile Design to mock up some different scenarios so that we can see and visualize exactly what the outcomes would look like.

What can you expect with DSD + your treatment?

All of our smile designs are customized to each patient individually. And so our patients do have a say on design. Our dentist might have a particular preference on the way he likes to set up a smile, but we always consult the patients through that. We show them the treatment plan, and we can make changes as needed.
N
High satisfaction with your new smile
N
Truly customized results – no two smile designs are exactly alike
N
Increased confidence throughout the treatment process
N
Multidisciplinary approach that preserves health and hygiene

What if You Don’t Like the Smile Design?

The beautiful thing about Digital Smile Design is that we create the smile that we think looks natural and great, but our dentist’s opinion is just one opinion. The most important opinion is yours – our patients.

And so we want to design a smile that you like. And if you don’t like the Digital Smile Design, that is a brilliant time to discuss what changes you would like. We make those changes there and then so that patients don’t proceed with any treatment without us having a clear understanding of what it is that they like and what design they’re looking for.

Price of Digital Smile Design at Sure Dental

Our Digital Smile Design process is not an additional payment on top of the treatment fee. It is part of the treatment fee. And so our patients pay for the Digital Smile Design, and once we go ahead with treatment, that payment actually gets credited towards their treatment.

Digital Smile Design is such an important diagnostic and planning feature that we incorporate it in the treatment cost for our patients, It’s a key component and a useful process.
