Digital Smile Design in Melbourne CBD

smiling woman with beautiful white teethDigital smile design or DSD is a cutting-edge dental technology that allows us at Collins Street Dental to design dental treatment based on facial analysis and ideal function to work in with the way your teeth meet when you chew.

What Are the Benefits?

DSD combines chairside digital technology with intelligent computer software and expert dental technicians, to provide you with the highest quality, bespoke dental treatment. DSD enables you to “try-in” your smile design to see how it looks and feels, before committing to any dental treatment.

Digital smile design is suitable for anyone wanting to improve their smile but is unsure as to where to start. It is also ideal for those with very worn teeth or missing teeth, wanting to know how their smile will look if rejuvenated.

We can address the following dental issues:

  • Worn teeth
  • Crowding or spacing
  • Uneven, misaligned teeth
  • Short or chipping teeth
  • Ageing smiles
  • Existing dental work due for an upgrade
  • Gummy smiles
  • Black triangles

How Does It Work?

There are three steps:

  1. Record Taking: We’ll gather a series of records, including a digital scan of your teeth and photos, and take a video of you and your smile, so we know how your new smile should function.
  2. 2D Smile Simulation: With the photos, we can show you a photo of what your new smile will look like. You can make changes or suggestions until we have the perfect smile for you!
  3. 3D Mock-up: At this visit, you get to “try-in” your new smile. Here we check the design and check you are happy before we begin any treatment. The dentist will discuss all treatment options and provide you with a clear treatment plan and you are ready to start!
