Digital Smile Design is a dental treatment plan that takes into account an individual patient’s features and desires. Digital scans, photographs and videos are taken of the clients dental and facial proportions. These images allow the dentist to study the patient’s face, smile, teeth arrangement and condition. This information is used to create a virtual treatment plan. The patient then reviews the plan, discusses possible procedures, asks questions, and shares concerns. In consultation with the dentist, the client chooses what treatment to undergo. Digital Smile Design is patient-centered and results in greater efficiency of treatment and higher patient satisfaction. It ensures dental care treatment that is best for each client.
