Summary:

Alternatives to restore defective and deficient edentulous spans should include prosthetic gingival restoration as an integral part of an overall esthetic reconstructive option in the decision-making process.To reestablish natural crown ratios and natural gingival profiles in complex cases, artificial gingiva restorations can reduce the necessity of technique-sensitive surgical procedures that depend on the individual pattern of biologic repair, thereby simplifying and reducing the time and cost of treatment.

An Esthetic Alternative in Full-Coverage Restorations
All too often, restorative dentists are faced with the dilemma of not being able to provide the ceramist the optimal space for maximum esthetics. The reasons are numerous, yet the problem still remains. The dental industry, along with the dental laboratory industry, has developed numerous full-coverage restorative options to obtain maximum esthetics.

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions
Dental erosion is a global health problem that can lead to significant functional and esthetic impairments of the affected patients. Treatment of sever cases with augmented loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) represents a challenge for both the dental team and the patient. CAD/CAM technology was used in the presented case to analyze the inter-occlusal space. The case report documents a practical, digital approach and discusses the advantages related to treatment time, ease of treatment, and predictability.

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome. This presentation will highlight a practice-based model centered on digitally enhanced treatment for efficient and predictable esthetic restorative outcomes.
