Esthetic Oral Rehabilitation:

Smile designing is a holistic, interdisciplinary approach towards esthetic enhancement. When reorganizing the existing occlusion, it is of utmost importance to achieve a functional and stable final result.

The process involves gathering the relevant information, organizing it, visualizing the end result based on the findings and then making an action plan to achieve the desired results. . An optimal treatment plan is split into small processes and sequenced in appropriate order to arrive at the desired end result.

The lecture will lay emphasis on how smile designing concepts need to be applied across all fields of dentistry for partial or full mouth rehabilitation to achieve long term success.

Empower yourself-to identify, plan and execute cases of smile design which can be treated with conservative techniques and which need full mouth rehabilitation.
