A Biometric Approach to Predictable Treatment of Clinical Crown Discrepancies A Biometric Approach to Predictable Treatment of Clinical Crown Discrepancies

Author(s):

Stephen J. Chu, DMD, MSD, CDT

Date Added:

Summary:

Dental professionals have long been guided by mathematical principles when interpreting aesthetic and tooth proportions for their patients. While many acknowledge that such principles are merely launch points for a smile design or reconstructive procedure, their existence appears to indicate practitioners’ desire for predictable, objective, and reproducible means of achieving success in aesthetic dentistry. This article introduces innovative aesthetic measurement gauges as a means of objectively quantifying tooth size discrepancies and enabling the clinician to perform aesthetic restorative dentistry with success and predictability.

Learning Objectives:

This article discusses an approach for predictable diagnosis and correction of discrepancies in tooth size and individual tooth proportion. Upon reading this article, the reader should:

  • Be able to quantatively evaluate aesthetic tooth dimensions.
  • Recognize the benefits of measurement gauges in the development of proper individual tooth size.
