It is a fact that esthetic rehabilitation is in high demand. To meet patient expectations, the dental community tends to use digital processes and modern communication techniques to reinforce treatment predictability and overcome esthetic challenges. Currently, digital smile design (DSD) processes offer the whole dental team including the orthodontist a powerful digital approach to improve esthetic analysis, team communication, and collaborative treatment planning, guided by facial harmony.
