1) Better communication between the dentist and patient
Some patients have a clear idea of the way they would like their new smile to look, whether that be based on a family member, friend or even a celebrity. Using Digital Smile Design (DSD) technology, you no longer need to be the passive patient being recommended procedures – instead, you become the co-designer of your new smile and Dr Robby will be able to work with you to select the optimal treatments required to achieve your desired look.
2) Allowing for a more holistic approach to diagnosis
If you’re concerned with how your new smile may ‘fit’ with the rest of your face, rest assured! Digital Smile Design (DSD) allows for your unique smile to be considered against the backdrop of your facial and bone structure. Using DSD’s new approach to dentistry, Dr Robby can generate a comprehensive facial diagnosis, focusing on your own specific dental, oral and facial concerns to allow for successful smile restoration.
Whether you’re after a more natural restoration, want to replace just one tooth or several, DSD gathers the precise information needed to expertly analyse facial proportions, dental shapes and colour to ensure the end result looks natural.
3) More accurate timescales and cost breakdowns
With DSD, more detailed timespans and prices can be generated prior to the commencement of treatment, as this technology ensures Dr Robby can give an accurate diagnosis and thus a transparent explanation of the procedures needed for your dental treatments. Thanks to the digitisation of the process, you will receive a step-by-step treatment plan, with excellent time and cost assessments before you start your treatment.
4) Improved prediction of the final effect
Using Digital Smile Design (DSD) software, the placement of implants can be accurately planned and detailed, helping to eliminate unnecessary discomfort and lowering the chance of unsuccessful occlusion. This type of guided dentistry also reduces the time taken during treatment and lessens the risk of unforeseen complications during treatment.
