Photographic-assisted prosthetic design technique for the anterior teeth
Zaccaria, Massimiliano / Squadrito, Nino
The aim of this article is to propose a standardized protocol for treating all inesthetic anterior maxillary situations using a well-planned clinical and photographic technique. As inesthetic aspects should be treated as a pathology, instruments to make a diagnosis are necessary. The prosthetic design to resolve inesthetic aspects, in respect of the function, should be considered a therapy, and, as such, instruments to make a prognosis are necessary. A perspective study was conducted to compare the involvement of patients with regard to the alterations to be made, initially with only a graphic esthetic previsualization, and later with an intraoral functional and esthetic previsualization. Significantly different results were shown for the two techniques. The instruments and steps necessary for the intraoral functional and esthetic previsualization technique are explained in detail in this article.
