A technique for selecting complete denture teeth by attaching printed tooth mold images

      Tooth selection for complete denture patients has been assisted by different anthropometric studies of individuals from various ethnicities.

      However, it may be difficult for the patient to evaluate the esthetic outcome until the tooth arrangement is completed. Although digital dentistry has enabled visualizing the outcome with a digital trial restoration, the expensive software program and complex workflow may make these procedures inaccessible for many practices, and it may be many years before it becomes routine for complete denture fabrication.
