Dentistry has witnessed tremendous advances in all its branches over the past few decades. Computer technology is an essential ingredient for state-of-the-art patient care and is becoming an integral part of the practice of dentistry. Smaller, smarter computing devices will support an increasing proportion of dental practice activities. Technology will make practice management more efficient. Computer software which could easily inter-relate photographic images and esthetic and cosmetic measurements would be a dynamic clinical tool and it is also beneficial in research to be conducted for cosmetic and esthetic purpose.
