Smile Design Part 2: Treatment of the crowded anterior dentition – a step-bystep protocol.


The success of aesthetics and restorative dentistry depends upon the clinician’s understanding of natural tooth form. Recent advances in adhesive dentistry, dental materials and dental technology have increased the ability of the clinician to mimic the natural dentition. In patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of crowded teeth, orthodontics is the ideal treatment.
