Digital Smile Design Q & A

What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design, or DSD, is a specialized dental treatment planning system that uses advanced technology to improve treatment outcomes. It uses a combination of techniques to explore the details of your teeth and bone structure. 

This level of detail enables highly customized treatments that preserve as much of your healthy natural tooth tissue as possible. In decades past, dentistry commonly relied on an approach of visually assessing the health of tooth tissue during the procedure itself. Digital Smile Design allows much of that work to be completed beforehand, which enables a more customized treatment experience. 

How do dentists learn Digital Smile Design techniques?

Dentists who want to use the Digital Smile Design approach seek out additional training in the DSD system. Part of this training focuses on the technological aspects of Digital Smile Design. An important component, however, is learning how to address the aesthetic goals of each patient. 

Communication skills are also important. The team members at Savannah Dental take the time to explain all aspects of your treatment planning, ensuring you walk away with a clear understanding of the possibilities. Patient education is built into every treatment performed at the practice, and digital smile training enhances those interactions. 

Another essential part of digital smile planning is the ability to show you what your new smile will look like. Thanks to advanced digital imaging and innovative software, you can “see” what your smile will look like, including a video representation of how your results will look when you laugh or speak. 

How do I get started with a Digital Smile Design experience?

When you come in for your consultation, your dental team will discuss the role that Digital Smile Design can play in your treatment planning. Be prepared to discuss not only the things about your smile that you would like to improve, but also the things that you love about your smile. 

It is possible to bring you closer to your unique aesthetic ideal without sacrificing the quirks and aspects that make your smile a unique part of your overall appearance. Solid communication between dentist and patient is key to a great outcome, and an area where Savannah Dental excels.
