In the last decades, aesthetics continue to become more relevant in our lives, mostly because of social media. Following the pace, patients are becoming increasingly concerned about the treatment’s result achieved from a cosmetic point of view. They strive to have the best smile possible. Modern orthodontics deals with the traditional dental and skeletal aspects of the malocclusion, which count among the pillars of a successful treatment. But, it must be kept in mind that a beautiful smile is also an important factor to achieve the patient’s satisfaction. With increased digitalization in dentistry, computer-based software of smile analysis and smile design have been proposed. Thanks to these software, high expectation in term of diagnosis and treatment planning can be met. Thus, they participate in accomplishing high aesthetic treatment outcomes. “Smile Design” concept propose facilitated protocols, advanced resources, making procedures simpler, and treatment outcomes easier to visualize before its initiation. Designing smiles has been, until now, largely used in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. It has been recently introduced in other disciplines such as orthodontics. In complex orthodontic treatment planning, it is useful in improving diagnostic abilities, guiding teeth movement, increasing predictability and facilitating the communication among interdisciplinary team members. This case report aims to illustrate the benefits of digital smile design in the orthodontic treatment planning and to describe the smile design’s protocol as complementary tool in orthodontic examination.
