Digital dental workflow for a smile makeover restoration
Agnini, Alessandro / Apponi, Roberto / Maffei, Simone / Agnini, Andrea
This article describes a novel concept for treatment planning and execution in the digital era. The aim of the presented workflow was to design, plan, communicate, perform, fabricate, deliver, and maintain a smile makeover restoration entirely through digital technology. The interdisciplinary treatment plan is described from the planning through the diagnostic mock-up to the final restoration. In digital designing, the dental morphology and tooth shape seen by the clinician and technician are interpreted by the computer as a 3D geometric mathematic model. Controlling the geometry provides freedom for the clinician to develop a restorative digital plan that can be followed throughout the patient's treatment. Moreover, new ceramic materials used with computer-assisted techniques have considerably broadened the choices for dental teams and have enhanced the results that can be achieved.
