Research has found that nearly 65% of humans are naturally visual learners, meaning they need to see information to retain it. Using simple and quick 2-dimensional smile designs as a visual aid to show a proposed outcome to a patient can be an extremely powerful tool for increasing case acceptance rates significantly.
Transferring the arbitrary mockup to a 3-dimensional printed model and using that as a template for an intraoral mockup can further increase not only case acceptance, but also the acceptance rates of the final delivered products due to the proposed aesthetics and changes being approved beforehand.
Minh Tran explores the tools, processes, and workflows that we can use to achieve predictable and highly aesthetic results.
