What is Digital Smile Design?

Ironwood Dental Care is a certified clinic by Digital Smile Design, which means that we are trained in how to use the concept of Digital Smile Design for our patients.

With DSD, we use digital technology to design our patients’ smiles and plan their dental treatment. And before treatment begins, we are able to show our patients how their new smile could look on them.

How can Digital Smile Design help you?

We use technology to help design beautiful new smiles that you can preview before any treatment starts.

With DSD you can change features such as:

An icon of a white tooth.

Lighten the shade of the teeth

An icon of a tooth being resized.

Rebalance the shape and size of the teeth

Remove small gaps between teeth

What’s stopping you from getting a confident new smile?

You won’t have to worry about these with Digital Smile Design! 

We invite you to see for yourself and be pleasantly surprised at how straightforward, predictable and enjoyable it can be to improve the appearance of your teeth. 

We trust in DSD and so can you

1. We get to know you

Smile design goes way beyond teeth. It’s personal and 100% tailored to your whole authentic self. That’s why we always start by listening to you, making sure we know what you are looking for and how we can deliver that to you in a way that makes you comfortable and cared for.

What’s not to love about a natural-looking smile?

Nature knows best

We use technology to replicate the authentic shapes, patterns and textures that are found in natural teeth. This helps us to create harmony and balance in any smile design.

Which would you prefer to hear? 

‘Wow, you have a beautiful smile!’

‘Wow, you have a beautifully done smile!’

Natural restorations won’t give you features that distract from the real you.

The benefit of foresight

We only want to give you happy surprises when it comes to your new smile. By showing you a preview of how you will look with your changed teeth, you are in the driver's seat of your treatment. 

How can you say yes to treatment before you know what the result will be? We’ll show you how your new smile will look, in your own mouth, before you get started.
