I like the case,,, like the crown lengthening and the prep,,, but i didn't like the shade of veneers and opacity,,,, they are so bleach, so opaque....

Dear Dr.Salama Thank you for your comment,I agree one hundred present with your second treatment suggestion,however I did not see any improvement in the amount of over-eruption and pt still show 8-9 mm at rest ,orthodontic treatment would have helped to intrude anterior teeth,and expand upper arch ,even if there is no over jet I still believe it would serve her better without cutting her teeth.I would like to hear from you if intrusion and upper maxillary expansion and correction of the central line would be the wrong treatment. Dr.A.Awadalla

Ashraf;
Unsure about your suggestion. It appears that she displayed minimal overbite on her pre-op images and that the incisal edge positions were in harmony with her lower lip. As an orthodontist and periodontist, I often try to treat these cases with conservative treatment like ortho intrusion of the Maxillary incisors followed by some minor GV but I don't think that this case would have been best treated in that manner due to the above.
But, I love the discussion and appreciate the post.
Dr. Salama

Ashraf Awadalla - (11/21/2010 7:01 PM)

This is the wrong treatment for that case,you are aware that the problem is dento alveolar over growth,should have been treated conservatively with orthodontic treatment,rather the very aggressive crown lengthening followed by more destruction placing veneers on a beautiful dentition.

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.

The "Hybrid Abutment": A New Design for Implant Cemented Restorations in the Esthetic Zones

The "Hybrid Abutment": A New Design for Implant Cemented Restorations in the Esthetic Zones
Cemented implant restorations are widely used by many dentists. The traditional abutment design resembles a natural tooth prepared for a crown with a similar taper and a chamfer finish line. A frequent complication associated with implant restorations in the esthetic zones is the recession of buccal gingiva over time. Abutment morphology, among several other prosthetic factors, may play an important role in the stability of gingival margin in esthetically sensitive areas, but this has never been thoroughly analyzed. With many considerations in mind and recent techniques released, this article proposes the "hybrid abutment: design (HAD), a new design that includes a combination of the two types of features - a feather edge on the buccal side, and a chamfer finish line on the lingual side. This article also presents a rationale for the use of different abutment designs for different situations.

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.
