Aesthetic Dentistry: A European Perspective Aesthetic Dentistry: A European Perspective

Author(s):

Date Added:

1/11/1995


Summary:

Within the dental profession, the clinical conditions and therapeutic treatment modalities are unaware of any boundaries or borders. Communication has evolved and technology has progressed to such a level that the dental community in Europe is able to communicate across the Atlantic as easily as we communicate with our colleagues and laboratory technicians in the neighboring countries. For this reason, we have felt it relevant to collaborate on the development of an internationally authored annual edition of journal Practical Periodontics and Aesthetic Dentistry.

Efficacy and Persistence of Tooth Bleaching Using a Diode Laser with Three Different Treatment Regimens
Bleaching is the most conservative esthetic treatment for discolored teeth when compared to resin-bonded composites, porcelain veneers, or crowns. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of power bleaching using a laser assisted hydrogen peroxide system, and to determine the stability of the color change over a 6-month period.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection Premium Member Content

The Hidden Value of Digital Radiography for Caries Detection
Digital radiography allows the dentist to use powerful image analysis tools to extract information from the image that might otherwise be missed by visual inspection alone. Historically interproximal caries detection is done by visually inspecting the radiograph for evidence of a radiolucency produced by the decay and visually determining if the decay is deep enough that a restoration is required.
