Here is how it works: first, a comprehensive set of digital photos will be taken of your teeth and areas of your mouth from a variety of angles. Then, Dr. Fulbright will show you the images and modify them based on your suggestions to display the many potential outcomes of treatment. Once you and Dr. Fulbright have decided on the ideal results, a digital mock-up will be created, as well as impressions of your teeth. These elements will be combined and then a resin model will be produced to determine how the treatment will ultimately fit your teeth and achieve your goals.
This detailed pre-treatment process can go a long way toward ensuring that the results are to your specifications, giving you peace-of-mind that the improvements you expect are the ones that you will likely receive. DSD is ultimately designed to help you more fully visualize the potential outcome and provide feedback to Dr. Fulbright on what you like and don’t like before the treatment even begins, reducing the chance that the results are not what you were hoping for. This innovative technology can be particularly beneficial for patients who are considering comprehensive smile makeovers involving a number of treatments.
