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.

Dr Amato, thank you for you question. The idea is to have a customized shade guide replicating the three dimensional structure of the tooth to be restored. And then instruments to be able to measure and control the material thickness, when layering. It is not so time consuming when used to apply the technique. But for sure is predictable. With the kindest regards, Yiannis Brokos.

Excellent,how long does it take you to plan and do the restoration? Thank you

YIANNIS BROKOS - (12/7/2017 4:55 AM)

Thank you very much dr. Vergoullis!

One of the most thorough and in depth presentations on composite layering and esthetics you will ever witness. I had to watch it 2X and still marveled and the depth of information. Thanks for sharing Dr. Salama

Modern Occlusal Concepts in Esthetic & Implant Dentistry
Occlusion is probably not one of the most popular topics in dental meetings and conferences nowadays especially if compared to implants and esthetics. Indeed it was considered in dentistry much more important just a few years ago than it is now. There is growing distance between the evolution of scientific research in the field, including available recent literature and several popular clinical approaches. It seems even difficult to have universal definitions related to this topic: the term “occlusion” itself is often associated with different adjectives to define it and many other terms are used with quite often differences in meaning, each of us gives a different meaning to the same terms, according to differences in treatment philosophies or in different specialties.

The Proof is in the Laboratory; A Maxillary Full Arch Implant Supported Zirconia Prettau Comparison
The FP-3 “Implant Supported Hybrid" has proven to be an exceptional and highly specialized treatment option for patients with non restorable teeth or existing edentulism. The use of zirconia provides the ultimate outcome bringing with it a new standard of esthetics, function and, when done well, a long lasting prosthesis. This presentation will stress the importance of treatment planning, CAD CAM technology, and the all important need for the laboratory technician’s human touch. Surgical aspects, provisonalization during healing, and management of soft tissue are important components. The protocol for final fabrication of the FP-3 all zirconia prosthesis is detailed along with a description of this exciting new technology.

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions Premium Member Content

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions
This course will describe a new reality in the creation of CAD –CAM generated restorations. Carestream dental has created a system which allows the user to generate ceramic restorations in office or through an internet portal to a dental laboratory. The system will allow dentist to create single unit ceramic restoration, implant abutments, printed models for orthodontics, and in the future precision implant surgical guides. The course will cover the CS3500 camera acquisition unit, its use, and export of images to the Restore software for restoration design to be milled in office, or export the image file to a desired dental milling laboratory. The design phase using the Restore software and the CS 3000 milling unit will be covered in depth so the viewer will be familiar with the CS system so they will be able to fabricate a milled ceramic restoration in either an open format, milling laboratory or a closed format in their office.

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.

The Harmony of Pink and White

The Harmony of Pink and White
Advances in technology have created many options in dental therapy. Implant therapy is becoming widely used to improve patients' oral function and make them satisfied. Clinicians are discovering the anatomical relationship of implant and soft tissue with the limitations of implant therapy. On the other hand, patients are demanding more beautiful smiles. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the harmony of pink and white in esthetic and functional restorative therapy.
