Emotional Dentistry

A unique experience for the smile makeover thanks to our exclusive Digital Smile Design system, based on the Emotional Dentistry


The concept of Digital Smile Design goes further than traditional dentistry and is emotional and extraordinary. It is also more efficient and precise: by using digital technology and multidisciplinary study, we further enhance excellence in dental practice and improve your satisfaction with results.

Digital Smile Design is a worldwide recognized scientific concept, used for over 8 years by elite dental technicians and dentists, that improves the quality of aesthetic dental treatments. Digital Smile Design is being applied daily as a state-of-the-art technique with an enhanced focus on client emotions and aesthetic desires.

Each design is tailor-made to each client according to facial and aesthetic features in total harmony with each individual’s face, thereby creating a smile that perfectly reflects the personality of each client.

This concept is based upon the analysis of each clients’ facial and dental proportions, using a predetermined series of high-quality digital photographs and videos that allow us to understand the relationship between teeth, gums, lips and smile with the facial features in motion and the clients’ facial gestures.

The battery of diagnostic tests are transferred to 3D using our software. Then, we will study and design each case to propose the best choice of a comprehensive treatment plan.

The achievement of the desired aesthetic and functional results depends solely on the correct and complete taking of diagnostic tests, interdisciplinary study and work, comprehensive treatment planning and implementation of appropriate technology by expert dental technicians specialized in the digital smile design technique.

Benefits of Digital Smile Design

-The client becomes the co-author of his/her own new smile. The design is completely tailor made to each client, following individualized facial features and desires.

-The DSD Concept allows the client to test the design before committing.

-DSD protocol allows you to see and feel the final result of the treatment in your mouth even before it starts, by using the Mock-up DSD simulation process.

-Digital Technology allows us to accurately reproduce the initial design of our Smile in the Final Treatment Result.

-DSD Protocol and Technology allows your dentist to carry out a more secure and accurate Diagnosis and Treatment.

Well planned treatments usually require 20 to 30% fewer appointments and time. 3D planning also allows procedures to be more delicate and accurate, reducing client discomfort and recovery time.

Thanks to the computer-based treatment planning software, the final result is a healthy, natural and highly aesthetic smile.
The main advantages of DSD are the personalized smiles and the possibility of client participation. The DSD Concept enables the client to become the co-author of his new smile, and to test the design before committing themselves to the treatment. It also allows for a greater personalization of the smile and harmonization with the personality of the client. The Concept also incorporates cutting edge technology that allows client to be treated more predictably and accuracy, making the final result more similar to the initial project presented and approved by the client.

The DSD concept allows for more efficiency in the planning and organization of the treatment and therefore generally makes the treatment shorter. Well planned treatments usually require 20 to 30% fewer appointments and time. Digital 3D technology also allows the treatment to be “performed” before even touching the client, virtually simulating the procedures. With this, we can also pre-fabricate many of the necessary devices, allowing more procedures to be done in the same query. 3D planning also allows procedures to be more delicate and accurate, reducing client discomfort and recovery time.

This new type of dentistry is fully guided by reducing the margins of error and creating a final result which follows the initial design.

It’s a new and exciting era in dentistry; we invite you to share our passion with you!

By using the aesthetic system with crowns and veneers, it is possible to make restorations and rehabilitations with the maximum aesthetic component using applied technology with metal free aesthetic materials.
