The Future of Dentistry: Digital Smile Design and Dental Imaging Technology
In an effort to provide our patients with unsurpassed dental care, our restorative and cosmetic dentists routinely participate in continuing education courses to remain at the forefront of their field. Our practice founder, Dr. Arun Narang, recently completed the first phase of training in an advanced technology called Digital Smile Design (DSD). This innovative imaging system elevates the pre-treatment experience and allows for greater dental precision and accuracy than ever before.
One of the primary benefits of utilising the DSD Studio is the ability to help patients visualise the outcome of their cosmetic or reconstructive procedure. When a patient arrives for their initial consultation, Dr. Narang will use the imaging system to capture a comprehensive set of digital photos of their teeth, mouth, gums, and oral structures. These images can then be modified live, in partnership with the patient, to reflect the needs and goals of the individual. In addition to the videos and pictures that are used to showcase the treatment plan, a digitally printed motivational mock-up can be created so the person can literally “try on” their new smile. DSD is a great way to enhance planning of both simple and complex procedures, from cosmetic bonding to a Smile Facelift.
Dr. Narang trained closely with Dr. Christian Coachman, one of the founders of the Digital Smile Design technology. Dr. Narang has completed Module 1 and is a recognized DSD Member. If you have any questions about DSD or Dr. Narang’s training, we encourage you to reach out to our friendly and knowledgeable team.
