Esthetic Crown Lengthening

Description:
Dr. Lee Silverstein discusses in great detail how to prepare, plan and implement esthetic crown lengthening in preparation for restorative dentistry. With the restorative end result always in mind, Dr. Silverstein also reviews the components of smile design that must be considered and adhered to by the surgeon in order to be successful in designing the crown lengthening surgical intervention.

Excellent presentation

It is an interesting topic to clear our concept and the surgery of doing crown lengthening. However, how to the treat the root exposure after crown lengthening.

Many thanks. Great video.

Growth Factors; The Next Step in Achieving Ideal Regeneration
The aim of dentistry is to provide esthetics and function for our patients. Using hard and soft tissue regeneration techniques we have the ability to rebuild what has been lost to disease or trauma. Whether we are regenerating lost tissue around teeth or developing an ideal implant site, growth factors are a powerful asset that help make regenerative procedures more predictable while reducing patient morbidity. This webinar review regeneration techniques and will discuss the popular growth factors available today and demonstrate their clinical use.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology Premium Member Content

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

The "Modified Tunnel" Technique and the development of the Lateral Tunnel Approach Premium Member Content

The "Modified Tunnel" Technique and the development of the Lateral Tunnel Approach
The "Modified Tunnel" technique is a method of esthetic connective tissue grafting that protects the interdental papillae. First published in 1999, this lateral tunnel approach uses vertical incisions on both sides of the treatment area. These vertical incisions facilitate placement and positioning of the graft over the root surfaces without the need to disturb the interdental papillae. This technique is very useful in esthetic areas and those that involve several teeth. An acellular dermal connective tissue allograft is an excellent choice of graft material to use with this technique.

The Basics of Root Coverage Surgery with Acellular Dermal Grafts: A STEP-BY-STEP Live Patient Demonstration
Soft tissue grafting is rapidly playing a larger role in restorative, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry. While conventional grafting techniques have several limitations, newer grafting materials and techniques make it easier for patients to say "yes" to the treatment they truly need and desire. In this webinar, Dr. Wong will perform a step-by-step demonstration using Perioderm to correct multiple gingival recession defects. Soft tissue allografts are quickly becoming a "game changer" in dentistry, making optimum dentistry more than an ideal... it's a reality.

Soft Tissue Waxup and Mock-Up as Key Factors in a Treatment Plan: Case Presentation
Rehabilitation of edentulous spaces in esthetic areas is a challenge to the clinician due to the loss of soft tissues. In these clinical situations, it would be desirable to evaluate and predict the gingival architecture to recover in the oral rehabilitation. To fulfill this need, the diagnostic was should anticipate the final rehabilitation with the integration of hard and soft tissue.

Laser Assisted Crown Lengthening

Laser Assisted Crown Lengthening
Clinical scenarios where crown lengthening procedures are indicated within the esthetic zone require special consideration to achieve predictable restorative results. Whether they are performed for the purposes of exposing sound tooth structure, or to enhance the appearance of the definitive restorations, these procedures must be planned to satisfy biologic requirements, while simultaneously avoiding deleterious esthetic effects. The implementation of diagnostic criteria, along with evidence-based…
