Summary:

In attempting to provide a restorative solution for cases that have been compromised by spatial considerations, clinicians have traditionally opted for an orthodontic approach that did not provide optimal aesthetics due to changes in tooth morphology, specifically tooth size and shape as a result of dental deterioration. With the advent of contemporary aesthetic materials and preparation techniques, clinicians and technicians are now empowered to deliver a penultimate result with minimal compromise to the surrounding dentition. This article presents the clinical and laboratory considerations that must be addressed when providing a prosthetic restoration for crowded teeth.

Learning Objectives:

This article discusses an option outside of orthodontics in the restoration of cases that are compromised by spatial considerations. Upon reading this article, the reader should:

  • Be able to address the clinical factors needed with spatially compromised cases.
  • Understand laboratory considerations in the restoration of such cases.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Tissue Management for Aesthitc Success with Posterior Restorations
Due in part to the positive tissue response to metal-ceramic crowns fabricated with Captek™ substructures, clinicians can now provide an aesthetic restoration with healthy supporting periodontium for their patients. All indirect restorations, however, depend on an accurate impression of the preparation and proper tissue management throughout provisionalization. Even after careful tooth preparation, the restorative site often fills with blood, intracrevicular and intraoral fluids, and the delicate…

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.

Merging Orthodontics & Esthetic Dentistry for the Anterior Zone. A Complete Clinical & Laboratory Perspective - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Merging Orthodontics & Esthetic Dentistry for the Anterior Zone. A Complete Clinical & Laboratory Perspective - Part 2 of 2
Anterior zone represents a clinical challenge in dentofacial esthetics. This presentation is unique since we will illustrate multidisciplinary treatment for the anterior zone from A to Z. Through the perspective of a Master Dental Ceramist & Restorative Dentist combined with the input of the Orthodontist we will illustrate with clinical cases the management of anterior esthetic challenges. Skeletal & dental problems are treated through orthodontics & orthognatic surgery prior to periodontal plastic surgery & finally high quality restorative dentistry gives the final touch to our cases. Extensive details of the ceramic laboratory work will be explained & illustrated for preserving as much as possible tooth structure. The complete management of anterior veneers & metal free crowns will be explained in detail. Color & shapes are an integral part of this webinar.
