Composites in the 3D World - Ease, Strength and Beauty - Part 2 of 3

Description:
Composite is the most versatile cosmetic restorative material we have in a comprehensive, esthetic minimally invasive dental practice. It is easily sculptable to gain the proper contour, has great strength were clinically indicated and can attain the appropriate color, luster and polish for a beautifully seamless restoration. Revisit skills in direct composite restorations such as layering with the aid of a matrix, which allows for a more ideal 3D undetectable restoration. Custom characterization and finishing and polishing will also be included. Cerec and its advanced technology has opened a whole new window to explore in the 3D world. A new completely innovative concept of 3D indirect composite restorations will be shared. Using Cerec technology to scan, design and mill a core is the starting point. Then using many of the composite skill of the direct world and one is able to attain the 3 C's of composite-- ideal color, contour and creativity. Join me as I explore the 3D world of composites.

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping Premium Member Content

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Reconstruccion Protesica Gingival
La apariencia saludable del tejido circundante y su arquitectura son componentes esenciales para lograr la estética dental. Para crear el efecto de DENTICION NATURAL, es indispensable que el tejido gingival, se vea similar al de los de los dientes circundantes. La cirugía periodontal, siempre y cuando sea predecible es y ha sido un tratamiento de elección, previo a la colocación de la prótesis definitiva. Pero en algunos casos la cirugía es imposible o indeseable. La utilización de la CERAMICA ROSADA, es una solución para defectos gingivales, no solo donde la cirugía gingival no es posible, sino como un tratamiento opcional no quirúrgico o como primera opción.

Clinical Performance of Porcelain Laminate Veneers: Outcomes of the Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary (APT) Technique

Clinical Performance of Porcelain Laminate Veneers: Outcomes of the Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary (APT) Technique
The article evaluates the long-term clinical performance of porcelain laminate veneers bonded to teeth prepared with the use of an additive mock-up and aesthetic pre-evaluative temporary (APT) technique over a 12-year period. Sixty-six patients were restored with 580 porcelain lamintate veneers. Over 12 years, 42 laminate veneers failed, but when the preparations were limited to the enamel, the failure rate resulting from debonding and microleakage decreased to 0%. Porcelain laminate veneers presented a successful clinical performance in terms of marginal adaptation, discoloration, gingival recession, secondary caries, postoperative sensitivity, and satisfaction with restoration shade at the end of 12 years. The APT technique facilitated diagnosis, communication and preparation providing predictability for the restorative treatment. Limiting the preparation depth to the enamel surface significantly increases the performance of porcelain laminate veneers.
