Treatment of Excessive Gingival Display and Anterior Overeruption: Rehabilitation and Restoration
In order to develop a normal physiologic relationship
between the osseous crest and correct the incisal positioning of the gingival margin as related to the CEJ,
surgical correction of the patient’s excessive gingival display was required.
A Biometric Approach to Predictable Treatment of Clinical Crown Discrepancies
Dental professionals have long been guided by mathematical principles when interpreting aesthetic and tooth proportions for their patients. While many acknowledge that such principles are merely launch points for a smile design or reconstructive procedure, their existence appears to indicate practitioners’ desire for predictable, objective, and reproducible means of achieving success in aesthetic dentistry. This article introduces innovative aesthetic measurement gauges as a means of objectively quantifying tooth size discrepancies and enabling the clinician to perform aesthetic restorative dentistry with success and predictability.
Diagnostic Waxing Transfer From Diagnostic Casts to Soft Tissue Definitive Casts
Fabricating quality anterior esthetic restorations, such as porcelain veneers and crowns, requires the fabrication of a soft tissue definitive cast with removable dies and a hard stone gingiva. This cast is essential to the integration of the definitive restoration with the architecture of the gingiva.
Managing Esthetics in a Challenging Economic Environment
Learn how to maximize the use of current communication tools with your laboratory for minimal communication breakdowns, allowing you to meet patient expectations the first time.
Final Seating and Cementation of a Central Incisor Crown
Dr. Ronald Goldstein shares his approach to the often complex and challenging effort required to deliver a single incisor crown.
Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, software's and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.
Minimizing Adhesive Failures: The Science of Dentin Adhesives
This webinar will look at the science behind bonding to dentin and review the risks and benefits of different clinical techniques.
Interdisciplinary Team Dentistry for Total Dentofacial Esthetics
Orthodontics sets up the foundation for future prosthetics in cases with periodontal, surgical and restorative dentistry requirements. Adult orthodontics simplifies complex clinical situations. Making it easier for restorative dentist to achieve better esthetic & functional results. Orthognatic surgery combined with orthodontics corrects skeletal discrepancies in order to have the patient ready for prosthodontic replacement of multiple missing teeth. Cases combined with implants to restore form & function will further illustrate the importance of multidisciplinary dentistry. Today´s practice requires a team approach that will be presented. In order to meet the patient´s demands for better esthetics and to obtain long term occlusal stability of our results.
