What Is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design (DSD) involves utilizing modern dental technology to produce images of your oral profile post-treatment. DSD is also a foundational part of a smile makeover, which involves using one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve your smile. Thanks to advances in dental technology, the images produced for smile design are highly accurate and help take the guesswork out of which treatment option will give you the desired results.

Your cosmetic dentist will use the iTero® intraoral scanner to produce these images alongside CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) software so you can make a more informed decision about your treatment.

Benefits of Digital Smile Design

  • Higher Patient Satisfaction – Greater control over your treatment, meaning you’re more likely to be satisfied with the results.
  • No More Guesswork –  DSD helps both you and your West Sayville cosmetic dentist make better decisions about your treatment plan.
  • A Natural Look – DSD produces natural and suitable results for your unique profile.
  • Preserves Your Oral Health – Only involves treatments that benefit your oral aesthetics and health.
  • Detects Issues Earlier – The combination of advanced imaging and design helps your West Sayville cosmetic dentist detect issues that may arise earlier, potentially saving you time and money on more costly and invasive treatments.
  • Longer Lasting Results – DSD involves treatments that produce longer-lasting results than more temporary measures.
  • Streamlined Process – Produces a more streamlined, efficient treatment timeline that reduces the number of future appointments and saves you time.

The Digital Smile Design Process

Initial Consultation

Before your DSD begins, Dr. Sigismondi will have you attend an initial consultation. Your initial consultation will involve a thorough exam, a medical history review, and questions about your smile goals. The initial consultation will help your cosmetic dentist decide how to approach your DSD and your next smile makeover.

Intraoral Scans

To begin your smile design, Dr. Sigismondi will use the iTero intraoral scanner to take many images of your face, jaw, teeth, etc. Your local cosmetic dentist will use these images as the basis for your DSD.

Digital Smile Design

Next, the intraoral scanner images will be downloaded and displayed on the screen. Dr. Sigismondi will use computer design software to make changes to your smile based on the treatment or treatments he recommends.

Treatment Planning

If you and your cosmetic dentist approve of the proposed changes, he’ll draft your treatment plan. He’ll consult with you to ensure that every part of your treatment corresponds with your busy schedule.
