Summary:

In modern society, dentinal erosion has become one of the major causes of the loss of mineralized tooth structure. Several surveys have pointed out a high and still increasing prevalence, especially among young individuals (eg, 37% of 14-year-olds in the United Kingdom present signs of palatal enamel erosion). While the presence of dentinal caries normally leads clinicians to take action immediately, in the case of dental erosion, many clinicians prefer to postpone any dental treatment until the patient is older, even though literature confrims that direct clinical observation is an unreliable method for monitoring the rates of tooth wear.The aim of this articel is to convince clinicians that in the specific case of dental erosion, hesitation in under-taking the adequate treatment will inevitably lead to further degradation of the patients dentition.

Dental color matching instruments and systems. Review of clinical and research aspects
Today’s shade-matching technologies have been developed in an effort to increase the success of color matching, communication, reproduction and verification in clinical dentistry, and, ultimately, to increase the efficiency of esthetic restorative work within any practice. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of the current state of shade-matching technologies and instrumentation, and their clinical and research application.

The Harmony of Pink and White

The Harmony of Pink and White
Advances in technology have created many options in dental therapy. Implant therapy is becoming widely used to improve patients' oral function and make them satisfied. Clinicians are discovering the anatomical relationship of implant and soft tissue with the limitations of implant therapy. On the other hand, patients are demanding more beautiful smiles. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the harmony of pink and white in esthetic and functional restorative therapy.

Dental Ceramics: Material Properties and Clinical Applications Part 3 of 3
This presentation will give viewers a background of the physical and mechanical properties of current dental ceramics. The material properties of the ceramics will be used to explain clinical recommendations for selecting a restorative material and designing the prosthesis. Additionally, laboratory research data will be presented to help the clinician determine the best method to cement or bond an all-ceramic restoration. Finally, an overview of laboratory fabrication of all-ceramic restorations will be presented in order to show clinicians their options when sending out a laboratory prescription.

Esthetic Rehabilitation for Severe Worn Dentition - Part 2 of 2
This presentation covers the importance of a differential diagnosis for the worn dentition. The speakers highlight in a step-by-step approach how to diagnose, treatment plan and sequence esthetic rehabilitation of patients with severe worn dentition. Including smile design, shell technique for fabrication of full arch provisional, all ceramic system selection based on functional needs, adhesive system selection, and bonding sequence, with a focus on occlusal management in order to minimize porcelain fractures and complications.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Achieving Esthetic Results Through Restorative Solutions in Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Achieving Esthetic Results Through Restorative Solutions in Implant Dentistry
In the anterior maxilla, the rehabilitation of patients with implant supported restorations is often challenging for clinicians due to the high esthetic demand expressed by patients and anatomic limitations. This lecture will concentrate on restorative treatment guidelines to achieve esthetic results in implant dentistry. It will provide solutions to improve esthetic outcome, as well as guidelines to achieve a more predictable result. In addition, evidence-based outcomes reported in literature evaluating “Pink” implants and abutments will be discussed. This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the surgeon and restorative doctor for all restorative options in tooth replacement therapy.
