Smile Design includes the involvement of not just the teeth but also the gingival contour, the lips, and other proportions relative to the face. This presentation will provide the foundational principles to incorporate smile design in a pragmatic way and will share clinical cases to share the impact which smile design planning has on the outcome of your clinical cases. We will discuss a pragmatic sequence to help clinicians design their anterior aesthetic treatment to deliver well balanced outcomes for their patients. We will additionally apply these principles when reviewing clinical cases. With a history in aesthetic clinical education, Dr. Calavassy will provide another building block in achieving successful and reproducible results using direct bonded composite resin materials in the anterior zone.
