Mastering Anterior Composites: 3D Layering Technique

Description:
Traumatic dental injury especially in childhood is a common problem. It occurs usually around 8-12 years old, in a male to female ratio of 2:1 / 3: 1 and affects 70% maxillary central incisors. Coronal fracture of enamel and dentin without pulp involvement is the frequent situation a restorative dentist has to manage, utilizing direct adhesive procedures. Successful shade matching in composite restorations is considered as one of the most difficult task to accomplish. It is based on a subjective comparison between a shade tab and the natural tooth and as direct composite restorations are realized within one single appointment, no "try-in" is possible. Therefore the search for a reliable shade matching procedure coupled with a predictable layering technique is still going on. The aim of this presentation is to present an individual three-dimensional layering technique with contemporary composites. This novel procedure is indicated in moderate to extensive crown fractures and is considered predictable after eliminating the parameter of thickness while layering restorative materials.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
This video addresses how to reestablish or maintain papilla height and the facial gingival tissue between a single or multiple missing teeth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant by using an innovative pontic design termed the E-pontic. The anatomical shape of the E-pontic will predictably support and maintain the facial gingival margin and interdental papillae over an acceptable alveolar ridge. The E-pontic design fulfills the prerequisites for maintaining a healthy periodontium and its ability to achieve a predictable long-term esthetic and functional result. The emergence profile of this pontic design that is similar to that of a natural tooth ensures that no palatal gap forms which could potentially cause phonetic problems. Trapping of food particles does not occur because of its unique adaptive design to the pontic recipient site.

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.
