OBJECTIVES The materials available today allow to rehabilitate, in a non-invasive way, teeth affected by serious imperfections. Often an orthodontic preparation is useful and, thanks to the use of clear aligners, is predictable and comfortable. A preliminary set-up offers to the clinician and patient an intuitive and understandable view of the expected final result. MATERIALS AND METHODS The new method proposed in the present work allows to integrate the set-up with the mokeup technique, simulating the aesthetic components of the planned restoration, in all details. RESULTS The clinical case presented, step by step, demonstrates the pre dictability and clinical reliability of the procedure. CONCLUSIONS The final clinical result coincides with the initial mock-up, demon strating that the proposed meth od has proved to be predictable and reliable. The correct execu tion of the technique is rigorous ly customized and its success is operator-dependent. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE The visualization of the objectives of the treatment constitutes a de cisive support for the clinician and provides the patient the possibility of benefiting from an immediate improvement by making it easier for him to accept a treatment plan that also includes an orthodontic phase, which potentially length ens the treatment but makes the realization more conservative.
