Smile makeover is one of the most common reasons for patients seeking dental treatment. When such treatment is planned, the clinician should integrate an interdisciplinary approach to achieve acceptable dentofacial aesthetics and functional occlusion without compromising periodontal health. Every dental practitioner must have thorough understanding of the roles of the various disciplines in producing an aesthetic makeover, with the most conservative and biologically sound interdisciplinary treatment plan possible. The treatment objectives for this patient were to correct the appearance, keeping in mind that the patient wanted dentofacial improvement in a short span of time. Hence, it was planned to correct the smile by prosthetic camouflage, that is, by placing ceramic crowns. This treatment option was considered to be the best suitable for the patient because of time constraints and also the stability for orthodontic open bite correction being low and having a high tendency to relapse. Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • When a smile makeover is planned, the clinician should integrate an interdisciplinary approach to achieve acceptable dentofacial aesthetics and functional occlusion without compromising periodontal health.
  • The dentist should skillfully integrate various disciplines to intervene with the tissues as minimally as possible and keep them biologically sound.
  • In the following case, orthodontic open bite correction was the best suitable option. However as the patient wanted a significant dentofacial improvement in a short span of time, his dental health was improved with periodontal and endodontic therapy and smile correction done by a prosthodontic camouflage, that is, by decreasing the posterior teeth crown height and bringing anterior teeth into occlusion and rehabilitating it to functional occlusion.
