Digital Smile Design interdisciplinary approach
Limitations in treatment planning are unpredictable due to poor communication between operator – patient, interdisciplinary team, lab technician and clinical factors overlooked by the lack of information .
Tools such as photographys , videos and computer are essential for communication with the patient to create expectations through prototypes that can result in a temporary restoration that will help us see the functional , biological, mechanical and aesthetic performance of the same and future the final restoration.
48 year old female patient presented to the clinic of the Specialty of Prosthodontics of the Intercontinental University, says the displeasure of her smile and her current oral situation. When performing oral examination is observed : gingival recession , wear , root fragments , ill-fitting dentures and TMJ problems .
