Key Words: Esthetics, Smile, Dentition, Comprehensive treatment
Esthetics has now become an important issue in modern Society and Today’s dental patients are demanding a youthful, attractive smile. The esthetic rehabilitation of the patients with functionally compromised dentitions frequently involves a multi-disciplinary approach. The realization of esthetic objectives in multi-disciplinary cases represents a considerable clinical challenge due to the fact that esthetics is a subjective concept which may create disagreement between dentists and patients . To a great extent, proper case selection and careful multi-disciplinary and treatment planning can govern the predictability of procedures. A team approach that includes the clinicians, the laboratory technicians, and the patient is essential to achieve the desired results.
The successful integration of esthetics and function does not emerge by chance, but rather as a result of meticulous development of clearly defined anatomical parameters and their subsequent incorporation into the design of the prosthesis [2-5].
This clinical case report demonstrates a successful multi- disciplinary approach in recreating an esthetic smile of a patient whose maxillary anterior dentition and even all her posterior teeth of both upper and lower jaws has been functionally and esthetically compromised.
