Nazariy Mykhaylyuk, DDS; Bogdan Mykhaylyuk, CDT; Nuno Sousa Dias, DDS; and Markus B. Blatz, DMD, PhD
Current digital technologies and workflows support all clinical steps from diagnostics to facially driven smile design and restoration finalization. They not only facilitate treatment planning, smile design, and restoration fabrication, but also provide an interactive platform for asynchronous collaboration among clinicians from different specialties and dental technicians for optimal interdisciplinary patient care. This article describes and illustrates interdisciplinary esthetic treatment with current digital tools and emphasizes the importance of high magnification for maximum precision, minimally invasive treatment, and clinical success.
