Abstract

Cosmetic dentistry has gone through potential transformations over the years. Various techniques have now been established to analyze the smile digitally and, to simulate the “Before and After” in a particular case. Selfiedontics defines the amalgamation of selfie-culture with clinical practice of dentistry. Use of selfie should not only be restricted to social platform, but also to educate the patient about his own dental status, and even in treatment planning. This article focuses on the combination of digital dentistry with that of the cosmetic or esthetic dentistry.
