- Duration: 2 hours
This lecture will cover the use of both digital and analog techniques for smile design and treatment planning. Digital technology, including 3D models and digital photographs, can be used to design and plan a patient’s smile makeover. Analog methods, such as physical mock-ups and wax-ups, are also valuable tools that can be used throughout the treatment planning process. Both digital and analog techniques have their own advantages and can be used together to create comprehensive treatment plans that consider both aesthetic and functional concerns. These methods can be applied in a variety of settings, including general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics, to provide patients with beautiful, functional smiles.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the benefits and limitations of digital and analog techniques for smile design.
- Use digital tools to design and plan smile makeovers.
- Incorporate analog techniques, such as physical mock-ups and wax-ups, into the treatment process.
