A technique for pretreatment estimation of appearance following cosmetic change to the anterior teeth by using a computer-generated image has been described. Patients should be advised that the generated projection is an estimation. As with a diagnostic set-up, a computer-generated result can only approximate final treatment. The patient must understand that the result could vary for reasons that might include (1) restorative material, (2) functional occlusal needs, (3) gingival tissue irritability, (4) artificial versus outdoor light, and (5) the angle at which the photograph was made. As technology advances, there will undoubtedly be other applications for computer graphics. The authors have successfully estimated outcomes for prosthodontic, orthodontic, and orthognathic surgical treatment. If properly used, color computer estimations can be successfully integrated in a dental office as a communication tool for the dentist, patient, and laboratory technician.
