Digital Smile Design (DSD) at Shifnal Dental Care

What is Digital Smile Design?

Do you lack confidence in your smile due to tooth discolouration, misalignment, unproportioned teeth and gums or missing teeth?

Digital Smile Design uses the very latest in visual technology to design and develop the perfect teeth for your face and smile.

The Perfect Smile for Your Face

The first step in your Digital Smile Design Journey will include having enhanced digital photographs taken of your smile. Short video clips will be recorded to analyse how your mouth and lips move during speech and expression. Digital impressions will also be taken of your teeth – at Shifnal Dental Care, we scan the teeth using our CEREC 3D dental camera.

The Smile Design Process

Before starting the smile design process, we will need to know everything that you would like to change about your smile, in order to provide a solution that works best for you.

Every plan is personalised to the individual patient, so during the process, we might use a combination of Orthodontics, Veneers, Crowns and Whitening, for example.

Previewing Your New Smile

The next step is to provide you with a preview of how your final smile would look in your mouth after making the changes that you have specified. Here, decisions about tooth length, shape, colour etc. can be finalised.

Seeing your new smile before treatments begin allows you to see what you are committing to before paying for the treatments – with previous methods, patients weren’t able to see how their smile would look until the treatments had been completed.

The Treatment Process

Once you are satisfied with the final design and proposed treatment plan, the necessary dental treatments can begin. During the treatment process, there may be several appointments and periods where braces are needed to achieve the desired results.

What Are the Benefits of Using Digital Smile Design?

  • Utilises advanced digital tools and software to improve efficiency and predictability.
  • Allows you to see a preview of your smile in your mouth before we start treatment.
