Improvement of facial esthetics and smile is considered one of the most important treatment objectives in orthodontics. Recent application of TADs has broadened the scope of diagnosis and made it possible to induce biomechanically reliable tooth movement in all 3 dimensions. However, traditionally, orthodontists are likely to diagnose and plan based on the static standards focused on the sagittal relationship. Given that smile/ beauty is a dynamic process perceived in a subjective manner, the ways to improve the smile also need thorough evaluation and management in multiple dimensions. This presentation will focus on the diagnosis and clinical considerations based on smile esthetics in the TADs era. Especially, clinical tips and efficient approaches “to enhance the smile” will be compared between Class II and Class III camouflage treatment.
