Using Digital Photography to Improve Esthetic Outcomes of Smile Makeovers

Dr. Joseph Kravitz, DDS, MS from Rockville, Maryland, uses digital photography to improve clinical outcomes for smile makeovers. He has learned how to improve dentistry for his patients by examining the details of every smile photo.

Dr. Kravitz has found digital photography to improve the following:

• Composite resins
• Tooth colored fillings
• Bonding
• Custom ceramic Veneers
• Custom ceramic crowns
• Custom ceramic fixed bridges
• Custom dental implants
• Custom abutments for dental implants
• Natural looking removable dentures
• Dental implant supported teeth
• Recession
• Soft tissue improvements
• Gum surgeries
• Gum tissue growth
• Swellings
• Infections
• Bite problems
• Tooth grinding
• Tooth clenching
• TMD (temporomandibular disorder)
• Dry mouth
• Xerostomia
• Sjogren’s disease / disorder
• Etc.

Patients feel better when we use digital photography to study them. Every patient is completely different. So, we treat each patient with detail, kindness, understanding, comfort and esthetics / cosmetics.

As a New Beauty Expert for New Beauty magazine, I have found that making slight variation in the edges of teeth, shape of teeth and colors – inspires a natural, renewed and rejuvenated smile for both women and men.


When I study the smile with the in-house prosthodontics laboratory (photo above), it allows a successful collaboration of beauty talent to detail that patient’s smile.

As shown in the photo below, we have a frank discussion about what is possible:
• What tooth colors are best
• What tooth shapes are best
• What tooth angles and curves are best
• What to expect
• What not to expect
