What is Digital Smile Design (DSD)
The excellence in functional and aesthetic dentistry canot be achieved by chance . It is consistently achieved by a systematic approach for diagnosis, communication, treatment planning, execution, and case maintenance.
DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN (DSD) is a multipurpose conceptual protocol which provides remarkable advantages:
- The diagnostic abilities are facilitated through an extra-and-intra oral aesthetic and structural evaluation
- Improved communication between the team members providing a better visual perception, education and motivation for patients
- Increased effectiveness, clinical efficiency and predictability through digital technology
DSD ETHICALLY INVOLVES THE PATIENTS in the restorative or smile enhancement process, making them the co-designer of their own treatment by sharing objectives, expressing their desires and expectations with the restorative team. The interaction between patient and dental specialist is improved by photos and videos taken at several steps of the treatment. The experiences all over the world have been tremendous. Once the restorative technical requirements are combined with the desires and emotional needs of the patient, great results will be achieved – creating a path to a natural, confident and beautiful smile.
