Digital Smile Design Cairns

Design your own smile together with Future Dental

As technology keeps progressing, so does the dental industry and at Future Dental, we take pride in keeping up with the latest news and in providing the most advanced procedures. We know that your smile is as unique as your personality and that most patients want their smile to shine through. This is why we have invested in the innovative dental technology, Digital Smile Design.

This patient-centric approach enables patients to visualise and modify their smile digitally with the use of computer technology. This lets you see what your future smile may look like on a screen and together with your dentist you can instantly make changes and see the result. This gives you the chance to reconsider which treatments you want before committing.

Using advanced digital imaging, photography and videography, your dentist can identify possible solutions and go through them thoroughly with you. This all aids in our vision of ensuring our patients can make the best-informed decisions regarding their options.

The main benefits of using the Design Smile Design technology is:

  • Patients get to design their own smile and treatment
  • Aids in the diagnosis, treatment planning and case maintenance
  • Clinical efficiency and predictability trough digital technology

Once you are ready for the first mock-up to be created, a mould is taken of your mouth onto which temporary resin materials will be used to craft the anticipated result. You are now free to take this home and get opinions from family and friends, and to make sure that this is the right smile for you. The last step of the procedure is when our dentist finally performs your required treatments and you already know that the results will be what you desire. Together, we will have created your dream smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of Digital Smile Design?

Digital Smile Design (DSD) revolutionises cosmetic dentistry by employing digital technology to collaboratively plan and design smiles. It enhances communication between dentists and patients through visual simulations, ensuring personalised, predictable, and efficient treatment plans. By involving patients in decision-making, minimising risks, and fostering multi-disciplinary coordination, DSD boosts patient confidence, improves treatment outcomes, and serves as a powerful marketing tool for dental practices.

What exactly is Digital Smile Design and how does it differ from traditional dentistry plans?

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is an innovative cosmetic dentistry method that employs digital tools like imaging and 3D modelling to create personalised treatment plans. It differs from traditional dentistry by offering detailed visual simulations of the desired smile outcome, facilitating collaborative patient involvement, predicting and preventing potential issues, and promoting seamless interdisciplinary coordination. This technology-driven approach enhances communication, precision, and overall patient satisfaction in contrast to conventional methods.

How long does the Digital Smile Design process take?

The duration of the Digital Smile Design process varies based on factors such as case complexity and treatment goals. It typically involves an initial consultation to gather data and discuss preferences, followed by the analysis and design stage using specialised software. The presentation of the digital smile design to the patient, potential adjustments, and finalisation of the design also contribute to the timeline. Subsequent treatment planning and the execution of dental procedures can span from several weeks to months, culminating in the realisation of the digitally designed smile. It’s advisable to consult with a dentist for a more precise estimation tailored to individual circumstances.
