What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital smile design is special software that allows your dentist to create a digital mockup for you, allowing you to see what your new smile will look like! Your dentist can use the software to manipulate the position, shape and dimensions of your teeth on a screen right in front of you.


How does it work?

Digital smile design is a simulation programme, which allows your dentist to create simulations, images and 3D models. The software helps your dentist diagnose any issues you may have, and properly plan treatments, all in the matter of a few minutes. Whether you need orthodontic treatment, prosthodontics, periodontics, implants or dentures, your dentist will be able to find a solution with the help of the programme. Using a picture of your face, the programme will create simulations of different options – you will be able to see your face on the screen, with all the treatment options available.


What are the benefits?

Because you are able to see an image of your face with a variety of simulations, you will be able to choose and accept your treatment without worrying about the end result. The shape, colour and dimensions of your teeth are all taken into account, which means that the results of your treatment will perfectly match the simulation, you see on the screen. There are no nasty surprises – what you see is what you get!
