What is Digital Smile Design?

DSD is software that shows what the patient’s smile will look like after treatment.

By means of a series of photographs of the patient’s face and dental structure, a very approximate image is created of what the final result will be after the application of the corresponding treatment.

The advance image of the patient’s smile also allows the team of specialists to plan the treatment more effectively and to be guided by the software during treatment.

How does it work?

Digital Smile Design uses digital photographs and videos to simulate the smile that best suits the conditions of each patient by studying the teeth, gums, lips and facial structure.

This design is fully customized through the use of specialized software.

What are the advantages of Smile Design?

DSD has revolutionized the dental industry and not for nothing, as it has great benefits for both dentists and patients.

Benefits of DSD for specialists

  • Much more complete dental diagnosis.
  • Excellent treatment planning.
  • Improves treatment precision. As all important patient data are in the software, more information is available for treatment.

Benefits of DSD for patients

  • Observe the result before treatment. Being able to see what their final image will look like makes patients much more motivated about the treatment and avoids the logical anxiety and stress of not knowing what the smile will look like.
  • Participation in smile design. In DSD, patients have a voice and a vote. The ideal is to achieve a smile that, while complying with the dentists’ guidelines, matches the expectations of the person undergoing treatment, and with Digital Smile Design the smile will be designed taking into account the patient’s opinion.
  • Dealings with the specialist. DSD allows for a closer relationship between the specialist and the patient, which will make visits much more pleasant.
