Summary:

Longevity and optimal aesthetics are critical aspects to consider when planning for direct composite resin restorations. While strength, wear resistance, and superior micromechanical retention are typically associated with functional durability, during the planning stage clinicians must equally consider aesthetic longevity, which includes retension of the original morphology, color stability, stain resistance, and marginal adaptation. To ensure optimum results for direct composite resin restorations, this article outlines the importance of effective techniques for proper planning for stain prevention and outlines the clinical considerations when refinishing is required.

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.

Total Esthetic Reconstruction; A Phased Step by Step Approach Premium Member Content

Total Esthetic Reconstruction; A Phased Step by Step Approach
Most studies report a wait of between six weeks and three months before taking the impression and placement of any type of restoration. But if we manage adequate surgical protocol and include certain processes (subject of the study), we can have more predictable results in relation to the marginal stability in the medium and long term. We are showing Claudia's case she is 20 years old with a clear gummy smile and small teeth in proportion to her face to whom we practice periodontal plastic surgery on ten of her upper pieces from premolar to premolar and cemented her veneers three weeks after the surgical procedure. We also present part of the elaboration process of the indirect resin veneers by our laboratory.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment Premium Member Content

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.
