Digital Smile Design

When most of us finished dental school, PFM crowns and amalgam fillings used to be the standard treatment options. At that time, the focus was to restore the patient’s oral health by eliminating infected areas in the soft tissues or repairing the hard structures with fillings or crowns. There was no real scope for esthetic improvements, because the materials available could not reproduce the optical properties of our teeth. Nowadays, however, we do have materials that can restore the health and function of natural structures as well as their esthetics.

Nevertheless, very often clinicians fail in understanding patient’s needs. They come to us with concerns regarding the final outcome of the treatment and most of the time with false or unrealistic expectations. For us, it is sometimes difficult to decide which tooth form we can give and which form and esthetic they would like to have. Fortunately, we have tools and techniques, that based on simple photography, smile analysis and morpho-psycology that can help us with a new way of approaching the important first appointment. Once the clinician understand the basic concepts of DSD diagnosis and communication the next logical steps is to go into the technique itself of making the design real. Several aspects like the importance of the type of smile or the prevalence of different tooth forms in nature will be shown based on our own findings.

After the diagnosis based on the DSD protocol is matered, the next challenge the clinician face is to choose the right technique for each case and select the appropriate material depending on the indication. We need to have a deep understanding of esthetic parameters and how to prioritize and relativize them in accordance with each patient and based on that choose make the right indication and choose the right material. We should also keep up to date on new developments in terms of techniques and materials and be aware of their respective advantages and limitations.

The course will provide the necessary tools to master esthetic rehabilitations. Several clinical cases and the challenges that each of them presents during the examination, treatment planning and execution will be presented and discussed. The participants will provide, if they wish, their own cases and based on them the protocol will be followed. The DSD concept will be shown in detail and the biological, functional and material related issues discussed.

The following aspects will be covered:

  • Communication between the dentist and the lab
  • Diagnostic and shade taking protocol
  • Treatment planning from the facial perspective. Smile patterns and the truth about the reference lines
  • Tips for efficient photography and videos
  • Tips for an efficient wax-up and mock-up
  • A demostration and a hands-on with the protocol on the computer step by step that the participants will be able to follow.
  • If a participant agree, a live demostration will be done.

All these topics will be exemplified with clinical cases fully documented from A to Z in HD resolution.

The course will first present the necessary theoretical backround about DSD with a short summary of it. Then tips and tricks about photo-video and how to analize the patients from the facial perspective are going to be given. Facial, smile and tooth references are going to be given.
The course will also provide the participants with written material explaining several techniques presented during the lectures.

Course objectives:

The participants will learn to:

  • Take pictures of the patients with any smartphone
  • Make a simple but effective video fundamental for any diagnostic process
  • Perform the Digital Smile Design protocol on their computers
  • Apply diferent esthetic parameters on the analysis of their patients
  • Correct defficient wax-ups
  • Perform a mock-up
  • Document the mock-up and show it in an emotional way to the patient

Dubai Session

Transportation

By Metro

The Dubai Metro is one of the most advanced public transport systems in the world, featuring driverless trains, air-conditioned stations.

Dubai Metro’s two lines cover a large part of the city: the Red Line runs from Rashidiya and Dubai Airport through the city centre and along Sheikh Zayed Road; the Green Line goes through some of Dubai’s busiest districts in Deira and Bur Dubai.

The Dubai Metro is a swift, smart and reasonably-priced way for visitors to get around the city – and to see large parts of it, from the Metro’s elevated tracks. With its extensive system of brand new feeder buses, much of Dubai is now accessible by Metro.

By Taxi

Taxis are relatively cheap in Dubai but can be hard to find during peak times. Make sure you know a well-known landmark close to your intended destination as taxi drivers cannot always keep up with the ever-expanding nature of this city.

Popular attractions

Dubai Mall

Travel to the four corners of the world in one day at the world’s largest mall, an elaborate building dedicated to the art of luxury shopping. Take a gander in department stores including Bloomingdales and Marks & Spencer, ice-skate opposite Hershey’s, become a pinball wizard at Sega Republic … or go wild on Fashion Avenue!

Burj Khalifa

What if tropical flowers bloomed in the desert? The world’s tallest building was modelled after the hymenocallis flower bursting into life. Once you get over the 830-metre glass and metal façade emerging from the unforgiving Arabian Desert, you’ll find a curious collision of residential and commercial space inside, including At.mosphere, the world’s highest restaurant.

The Dubai Fountain

If this fountain were a Hollywood film, its name would be ‘Dances with Water’. Watch water transform into rainbow-coloured light rays that shoot upwards to the sound of world music. It’s a whimsical sight that will delight the whole family, especially during the evening shows from 18:00–23:00. Look familiar? The same company created Las Vegas’ Fountains of Bellagio.

Desert Safari

Experience an exciting adrenaline pumping thrilling ride on a desert safari in Dubai! The afternoon begins by heading towards the desert for a thrilling ride through the majestic high-rise dunes of the Fossil rock region.

After this adrenaline pumping ride we continue our trip to a camel-breeding farm and from there to our Bedouin campsite in the middle of the desert. On the way you will have the opportunity to take some pictures of the spectacular dunes as we stop for refreshments and watch the golden sun set over the desert.

After we arrive at the campsite you have the chance to ride a camel, unwind by smoking an aromatic shisha or enjoying a chilled drink before we serve a delicious BBQ dinner. A belly dancer will introduce you to the art of Arabian entertainment before we leave the desert and head back to Dubai.

To tip or not to tip?

A tip of 10% is usually expected for hotel and restaurant staff if service charges are not included in your final bill. It's appropiate to tip taxi drivers a few extra dirhams.
