Abstract: The visagism concept in dentistry tries to achieve the most appropriate smile design for every individual patient. The design is based on facial analysis, the patient’s personality and their preferences, and is calculated and visualized as a teeth configuration. The paper presents VisagiSMile — aesthetic dentistry software which automates the theory of dental visagism. The goal of VisagiSMile is to automate this process of creating aesthetic cases and to eliminate the human factor from the analysis. Based on innovative data mining approach, the software learns to classify patients’ faces correctly and then makes the necessary calculations to produce harmonious teeth configuration which can be further adjusted.
