# Change bullet point symbol without changing \item [closed]

I have the following code:

 \documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{pifont}

\begin {document}
\frame{
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item test
\item test
\end{itemize}
}

\end{document}


Now I want to change the bullet points to another form, using \ding{111} and pifont:

\usepackage{pifont}


According to this thread I tried

\newcommand{\myitem}{\item[\checkmark]}


but than I have to change every \item in my presentation to \myitem, so how can I do this without needing to change the \item?
