The patient’s information was uploaded into DSDApp to reconcile the photos (frontal facial smile, 12 o’clock and profile smile) and the digital impression (scanner) with the goal of creating a 3D Smile Design. The facial guided smile frame was created by using the recurring aesthetic dental (RED) proportion, (width and length ratio proportion), arch curve, teeth proportion and design. (Fig. 5: video) The smile simulation design was then presented to the patient, with the goal of involving her to be a co-designer of her own digital smile; creating an emotional attachment to the design as well as the Wow-factor. (Fig 6).
Afterwards, the created smile simulation was converted to a 3D project, and later exported to a 3D printer; generating a physical model with the new teeth and gumline design (Fig.5: video)
