At Vilafortuny, we are proud to offer patients the latest in dental treatment with state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. One of these services is Digital Smile Design, which allows our patients to become the co-designers of their new smiles.

What is Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design (DSD) gives patients the opportunity to preview the end result of complex treatment plans. Using a series of digital photographs of a patient’s teeth, smile and face, we can create an accurate presentation of how the teeth will look once treatment is completed. DSD incorporates the features of each individual case to enable a dentist and patient to design a smile together that will be achievable and natural-looking.

DSD offers a patient-friendly approach that involves input and feedback, as well as seeing how the teeth will look in the mouth before treatment begins – giving the patient an essential role in the smile design process. This gives our team the added confidence that the finished product truly reflects each patient’s dreams and ambitions.

How Does Digital Smile Design work?

We begin by taking photos of your smile, as it currently looks. You will then discuss your concerns and smile aspirations with a specially trained Digital Smile Design dentist. Together you will decide what is achievable and desirable through treatment.

Traditionally, at this point, you would be given a complex treatment plan. Instead, Digital Smile Design enables us to create a design of the smile you have in mind, ideally suited to your unique features. After this a temporary preview mould is fitted in the mouth, and photos are taken again, giving the patient a test drive experience. Once the patient is happy, treatment can begin.
