The digital smile design process
At Harley Street Dental Studio, the DSD process takes place through six careful stages:
Enhanced digital photography
When you laugh, do you cover your mouth with your hand to mask your teeth? Or have you perfected the ‘guarded smile’ look rather than beaming confidently? Expressing yourself without feeling self-conscious is very important. Harley Street Dental Studio are here to bring that carefree smile back to your face. Your DSD plan will begin with one of our caring experts taking a photograph of your smile, just as it is now. This is to give you chance to show us what you don’t like and help us give you advice on which treatments would be best to transform your teeth.
The way our lips move when we talk is a lot different to the way we look when we smile for a photo. We don’t see ourselves as other people do very often, which is why the second step is to film a short clip of you speaking, so you can look at how your smile works as part of your face in general speech. Again this will help you make specific decisions about what you want to change.
