Digital Smile Design
What is a Digital Smile Design?
Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a treatment planning protocol that allows for careful analysis of the patient’s facial and dental structures through state-of-the-art videography and digital technology. Today, the DSD Concept is considered the most modern, patient-centered design approach available.
- Step 1: SLR camera to obtain the 2D images.
- Step 2: Face 3d scanner to capture the facial data.
- Step 3: Intraoral 3d scanner to acquire the jaw data.
- Step 4: Design software (exoCAD Smile Creator) to carry out mock-up design.
- Step 5: 3D printer to print the mock-up mode.
