Digital Smile Design Explained
The Digital Smile Design protocol (DSD) is a state of the art treatment planning tool to allow you to be the co-author of your smile! By using these advanced techniques, our doctors can try your future smile in your mouth before any cosmetic treatment is performed. This allows the patient, doctor, and laboratory technician to all approve the smile design before anything irreversible is completed. This allows our patients to know exactly what their smile will look and feel like when they have completed treatment. Planning everything in advance allows our doctors to do less invasive dentistry, get predictable final results, and let the patient be the co-author of their own smile! The future of smile makeovers is here!

Digital Smile Design (DSD) Step-by-Step
Step 1: Consultation and Clinical Records
During this appointment, we will discuss your goals with your smile. Do you want to change the shape, length, color, size, etc.? We like to get to know you personally to know what smile to design that specifically fits your personality and your facial structure. There are no cookie-cutter smiles in our office! We will then take a series of photos, videos, and impressions.
Step 2: Digital Smile Design
Our doctors will design the smile that best fits your face and personality using state of the art technology such as digital scanning and 3D printing. During this process, we analyze your whole face and not just the teeth and gums like other dentists. Any change that we make during this design phase always relates back to the face for a true orofacial approach to dentistry. Our goal is a natural smile where nobody knows you had any work done.
Step 3: The Test Drive
You read that correctly...a test drive. Through Digital Smile Design you can actually test drive your new smile in your mouth! In about 10-15 minutes, our doctors will do dentistry magic to transform your smile and give you a preview of what it could look like. There are no shots, no drills, and no discomfort during this process. We will again take a series of photos and videos to analyze your smile. This is the time when post people take our their phone and its selfy time!
Step 4: Treatment Begins
