Digital Smile Design

See What's Possible

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is the use of digital images and computer-based manipulation to demonstrate possible changes to the smile and specifically to the position, size, shape and colour of the teeth and gums.

It’s a comprehensive cosmetic dental planning tool that uses digital calibration to known dimensions in the mouth in order to guide the placement of wax during the planning/blueprint or diagnostic wax-up stage. It is then this diagnostic wax-up that is “test-driven” in your mouth before the final smile is delivered.
