A beautiful confident smile is desired by all. When a patient wishes to attain that smile but is skeptical to undertake the treatment procedure, for not being able to visualize his or her treatment outcome, is when a clinician can use the Digital smile designing (DSD) tool. Digital smile design is a digital mode that helps us to create and project the new smile design by attaining a simulation and pre-visualization of the ultimate result of the proposed treatment. A design created digitally involves participation of the patients, leading to customization of smile design as per individual needs and desires that complements with the morpho psychological characteristics of the patient, increasing their conﬁdence in the process and better acceptance of the anticipated treatment. This can be easily edited and can be done and undone anytime to achieve the final design balancing patients aesthetic and functional needs.
It improves communication, and enhances treatment predictability, by permitting careful analysis of the patient’s facial and dental characteristics that may have gone unnoticed by clinical, photographic or diagnostic cast based evaluation procedures.
