No photographs available showing natural teeth

If the patient can’t find a dentate photograph with their natural teeth visible, it is still useful to have an unsmiling photograph of their face, taken when they had their natural teeth. These photographs are still an excellent reference giving lots of information about lip support, lower face height and indirectly their natural teeth positions.

It is much more useful than having no photograph at all.

Failing any photographs of themselves, photographs of a near family relative – parent, sibling or offspring – can be helpful if the patient thinks their teeth were similar.
