Ultimate Personalized Smile Design: Manual vs Digital

While some of the final esthetic results are creating the ≫wow≪ effect, some may fail to meet the patient’s expectations due to disharmony between the smile design and the patient’s personality. The patient may feel that the restored teeth do not really ≫belong≪ to him or her. Without the proper knowledge, the origin of this disharmony can be difficult to identify. 

Most of all the smiles are being designed intuitively by the dentist or the ceramist.
The aim of this course is to present a novel concept which involves the creation of a customized personal image expressing a person‘s sense of identity which is based on the ≫visagism≪  VIS concept that helps dental clinicians provide restorations that account not only for esthetics, but also for the psychosocial features of the created image, which affect patients’ emotions, sense of identity, behavior, and self-esteem. 

Even with this very valuable VIS smile design, for some dentists creating a mock up directly may be difficult.Filling an empty space with teeth can be a difficult task. However with the new digital technologies this problem is now solved. The REBEL is the new 3D SMILE DESIGN program, which can immediately convert the 2D VIS program in to 3D. This way the dentist will be able to immediately 3D print this STL file and be able to place the final wax up in the patients mouth.

The protocol that will be presented in this 2 day event will show the attendees how easy it is to work with the REBEL and how to get the 3D digital wax up. The course will also emphasize the importance of the correct communication to improve the esthetic diagnosis and predictability of anterior esthetic restorations and will provide details on how to prep the teeth, the provisionals and how to bond the restorations.
