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 Premium Member Content

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.

The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx Premium Member Content

The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx
Thru the direct Aesthetic Provisional Application technique, the provisional will serve as a preparation guide, aesthetic guide to both patient and lab as well as an occlusal guide. This gives the practitioner total control over the case, gives the patient a true visualization of what the permanent teeth will look like and gives the laboratory an accurate tooth position to be copied into final form. The d-APA is done with flowable compostite in the patient’s mouth thru a series of additions and reductions to the teeth to gain final position. Although challenging, the technique becomes very rewarding by placing artistry and control into the hands of the dentist.

Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion
Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion is a comprehensive approach between occlusion, posture, and function. Overall, this lecture will create an understanding and relationship between the cervical spine and mandibular movements and the trilogy between Joints, Muscles and Occlusion. Most of the patients that we treat for dysfunction, were compromised during the early stages of growth and development. Overtime these created accommodations and compensations in the system induced by the physiology of the airway.
