In this article I share how digital smile design works and I share my experience as the only dentist in Perth with the DSD “Mastership” certification.
Introduction: What is digital smile design?
Digital Smile Design (DSD) is one of the latest innovations in cosmetic dentistry. DSD involves creating a 3D model of your smile on a computer. This can help you and your dentist see exactly what changes need to be made. The results are more precise, and the patient gets to see what their smile will look like before undergoing treatment.
With Digital Smile Design, you don’t need to blindly trust your dentist without previewing the result for yourself. We can help you “test drive” your desired smile outcome before any treatment begins.Dr Lily Taheri
How does it work?
Digital smile design is a newer technology that helps create a digital model of a patient’s teeth. This allows for a more accurate and customised treatment plan. The process begins with taking photographs of the patient’s teeth from multiple angles. These photos are then used to create a 3D model of the teeth. This model can be used to plan the patient’s treatment and to show them what their smile will look like after treatment.
Benefits of digital smile design
There are many benefits to digital smile design. One of the biggest advantages is that you can see what your smile will look like before it’s even finished. You don’t need to blindly trust treatment without previewing the result for yourself. This means that if you don’t like how something looks, you can change it immediately. You can make changes to the colour, shape, and size of your teeth, which means that you can get the perfect smile for you.
- More accurate design process

Who is DSD for?
Digital Smile Design is beneficial for people who are self-conscious about their smiles. It is especially useful for people who would like to see what their smile will look like before undergoing treatment. The patient can work with their dentist to adjust the smallest details to ensure the patient is confident in the final result.
DSD can be used to correct crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and uneven spacing. It can also make teeth appear whiter and brighter. The results of DSD are subtle, but they can make a big difference in the way a person looks and feels about themselves.
DSD is not just for cosmetic purposes. It can also help to correct problems with bite alignment and TMJ pain. In some cases, it may be necessary to combine DSD with other dental procedures such as braces or veneers in order to achieve the desired results.
