Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin - Part 3 of 4

Description:
For the past 50 years dentists have been making instant esthetic transformations using direct composite resin. That technology has been enhanced by the latest nano composite materials. Although the past decade has seen greater use of ceramic materials in esthetic dentistry, direct bonding with these new composites is still a highly valuable procedure. This video will deal with correction of severe tooth discoloration using nano composites. Immediate composite resin bonding can act as either the ideal correction or as an extended trial smile so patients can live with their new smile as long as necessary.

I fully agree with you Dr Tran, and much of the problem is the media's computer enhancing of celebrity photos to make the teeth whiter. So patients have a false idea of what even light natural tooth shades are. Nevertheless, we are in a profession that seeks to make our patients happy and if they want extremely white teeth then we have the option to either comply with their wishes or refer them elsewhere.

Thank you Dr. Goldstein for a great presentation. I had patients who requested Cosmedent SB1 shade for 10 direct veneers! and of course they refer their friend who also wants SB1 shade. I dried my mouth trying to convince them to take SB3 but failed! What has the media done to teeth color? The beauty is you did not just change the smile, you've changed a personality! Thanks, Dr. Binh Tran

You are correct...the lighter shade makes the teeth seem like they are more prominent but in this case the shade is, as my good friend of blessed memory used to say, "a patient generated shade" meaning the young lady had been so embarrased with her darkly stained teeth that all she wanted was a smile as white and bright as I could make it. Fortunately, I toned it down from the lightest bleaching shade possible and she was still very pleased as you could hear her comments. I might add, that potential beauty contestants almost always want the very brightest bleaching shades possible because they look good under the bright lights of the stage. I was taught that by one of my celebrity patients and when I doubted the concept, she make me attend her concert and I saw first hand what she meant. This also has led me years ago to adopt trial smiles for almost every patient who wants a smile makeover. Even though we may do esthetic imaging, the 3D trial smile helps the patient see exactly what the final will look like in most cases.

Very good result, considering the original circumstances. However, I believe the shade is far too bride and that makes the teeth to “come forward” and dominate the whole face image.

Smile Transformations Through Composite Restorations
In today’s esthetic conscious society, to obtain ideal results, the dentist must have a thorough understanding of the patient’s desires, economic concerns, and esthetic expectations. The objective of this course is to help the practitioner successfully select and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results without committing the patient to the high biologic and financial cost of indirect porcelain restorations. Multiple clinical cases will be used to demonstrate the versatility of today’s composite materials and their advantages over porcelain restorations in both anterior and posterior situations.

Adhesive Dentistry: From Direct to Indirect Restorations
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration. It is very important to have a synergy between the clinician, the dental technician and the patient and to make the right use of the protocols and a flow chart to address all patient needs. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.
