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.

Demystify The Gingival Restorative Interface in Oral Rehabilitation Premium Member Content

Demystify The Gingival Restorative Interface in Oral Rehabilitation
Pink esthetic therapy often can encompass single and multiple tooth loss clinical scenarios. The decision-making process of when and how to use interdisciplinary therapy to address a failing single tooth as well as loss of attachment around teeth adjacent to the natural dentition, an implant, or an edentulous ridge can be daunting. A presentation of existing pink determinants that define esthetic outcomes will be outlined in addition to the use of single tooth implants, orthodontic extrusion, and pink ceramics in therapy.

Preventing Subgingival Margins by Implementing Supra-gingival Dentistry Protocol
Restorative margins ending subgingival are considered “normal” and out of the control of the restorative dentist, but in reality subgingival margins are mostly avoidable and preventable! We have the technique and materials to be able to consider all of the above part of the history of dentistry.

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. Achieving or maintaining optimal aesthetics requires detailed treatment planning and sequencing of therapy, and often requires a multidisciplinary approach. 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.

Vonlays: A Conservative Esthetic Alternative to Full-Coverage Crowns

Vonlays: A Conservative Esthetic Alternative to Full-Coverage Crowns
Porcelain veneers have long been a popular restorative option that have evolved into a well-accepted treatment that can be fabricated in various ways. Onlays are another common treatment modality used in contemporary dentistry to restore large areas of decay and to replace old restorations. With the availability of newer high-strength materials such as lithium disilicate and processing technologies like CAD/CAM and heat pressing, dental professionals are now able to produce highly esthetic, high-strength restorations that blend seamlessly with the natural dentition while also withstanding posterior occlusal forces. This has resulted in innovative methods of providing minimally invasive dentistry. One such approach is a combination restoration the authors call a “vonlay,” which, as demonstrated in this case report, can be used as an alternative to coverage crowns to restore damaged posterior teeth.
