Conservative Treatment Planning for Minimal Esthetic Tooth Deformities

Description:
There is no single best treatment plan for patients who want a better looking smile. Even in a multidisciplinary and multiple restorative dental office there are multiple ways of accomplishing the goal. This presentation will cover some of the diagnostic and treatment parameters when patients present with not only fractured but other minimal deformities as well. The decision whether to bond, veneer, or crown for a young patient will be discussed.

Great Case Dr. Goldstein, What type of porcelain did you choose for the veneers in this case?

Ronald Goldstein - (8/31/2016 9:10 PM)

Lewis, the reason for the incisal wrap design on the central was because there was not much tooth structure left and I wanted to reinforce the incisal. I should have put in palatal photos which would have showed the lingual problems with the endo defect and microcracks. It would have also showed the central incisor was slightly in linguoversion so only a minimal reduction was necessary. Finally, in order to build out he central we needed to reduce the incisal edge and then the final veneer would appear normal.

Hi Dr. Goldstein, I am writing to ask you on your prep design. It appears from the pre-operative photo that incisal edge lengths of the right central and lateral incisors are at relatively esthetic positions. What was your rationale for the incisal wrap prep design and extension of your margins to the palatal surface? I can see why an incisal wrap design can be beneficial for #7 since you're lengthening it ever so slightly and accounting for protrusive excursion. How deep were your preparations? Would you have been able to get away with a window design on #8, pending patient's excursive pattern? - Lewis

Ankita, regarding microabrasion procedure I first need to make sure there is no possibility of just doing cosmetic contouring to eliminate a hypocalcified area. And if not then I choose to use the Ultradent technique which has virtually everything you need to complete the procedure. The kit contains a pumice with hydrochloric acid to help remove no more than 25 microns of the enamel surface. It is applied with rotary pressure using the polishing cups first with bristles and then without for finishing and polishing. Dr. Ted Croll normally does it in one appointment but I have found it takes more than one to completely remove the stain.

Very well explained case! Really appreciate your conservative approach & not opting to do all 4 incisors veneers. Sir could you explain the microabrasion technique a little in detail..also do you recommend to use Hydrofluoric Acid for microabrasion procedure. Thank You.

Very well explained Dr. Goldstein ! Great vision of what is needed.

Creating Tooth to Face Proportion in One Visit
This video illustrates a conservative technique for proportioning teeth to improve the smile and facial appearance as well. The goal in interpersonal contact is to be able to maintain eye to eye contact. However, when a tooth or teeth are out of proportion such as crowded, it becomes more difficult to maintain the eye to eye contact. The solution in this case is cosmetic contouring or reshaping the crowded teeth which provides an immediate esthetic result.

Can We Still SAVE Teeth? Modern Periodontal Surgical Concepts for the Natural Dentition
Biologic shaping is an adjunct to conventional crown lengthening. Conventional crown lengthening uses the existing margins of an old restoration or the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) of a non-restored tooth to determine the amount of bone removal necessary to establish adequate space for the biologic width. Creating proper space for the biologic width ensures that a new margin will not impinge upon the periodontal complex and reduces the likelihood of future inflammation.

Minimally Invasive Restorations through Maximum Visualization Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Restorations through Maximum Visualization
This presentation will highlight providing minimally invasive restorations for patients, aided through technology such as magnification, illumination, percussion diagnostics and current dental material choices. Of critical importance today is the realization that patients are living longer and want to retain their teeth for a lifetime. With these factors in mind, the preservations of tooth structure is even more critical today than in former generations. For restoration longevity of minimally invasive restorations there must be a commitment to precision aided by magnification, understanding the physical properties of materials, controlling and managing the occlusal forces, learning how to measure and monitor the mechanical stability of tooth and implant stability with new technology breakthroughs and preventive control instructions.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.
