Digital Smile Design
When Dr. Krapf was a dental implant sales consultant in America, he met Christian Coachman as the lead ceramist for the dental laboratory of Drs. Goldstein, Garber, and Salama (the world famous “Team Atlanta”). Christian fell off Dr. Krapf’s radar until 2013 when Christian’s face appeared on an advertisement in the Australian Dental Journal for “Digital Smile Design” (DSD). Learning more about the concept and technology that Christian and his team had developed, Dr. Krapf felt drawn to the concept. In the whole history of dentistry, patients were forced to have internal dreams of what a new smile could look like and take it on faith that the dentist could achieve it. Dentists should feel so honoured that patients would accept complex and costly treatment plans based solely on the belief that the dentist could achieve it. DSD has created a better option. We design the smile and create a “mock-up” so that you can “try before you buy”. If you want the end product, we then discuss options to achieve it, the phases, the timing and how to make the cost achievable. Even though we are dentists, we feel that committing to an expensive treatment plan without the chance to visualize the end result is the equivalent of buying a car that you never test drove.
