Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions

Description:
One of the biggest challenges that we dentists have are those cases that require a multidisciplinary approach which traditionally were managed using invasive and long term treatments. Nowadays, and depending on the case, the contemporary dentist can offer minimally invasive treatments which allow us to modify the shape of the hard and soft tissues. The combination of surgical lip repositioning with periodontal plastic surgery yields highly effective results in the treatment of gummy smiles. During patient examination it is important to establish the etiology responsible for the excessive gingival display. The combined technique can be considered as an alternative option to more invasive procedures. The prognosis is acceptable and the patient realizes that the esthetic problem has been minimized.

Choosing Anterior Ceramics – The Concept of Restorative Volume - Part 1 of 2
In this lecture the author presents reviews significant literature and integrates it with clinical experience to select relevant factors that could provide a logical and practical guideline for restorative decisions in anterior teeth.The presented Concept of Restorative Volume is based on structural, optical, and periodontal factors. Each of these factors will influence the short and long-term behavior of restorations in terms of esthetics, biology, and function.

Microscopic Dentistry; Practical Use in Restorative Dentistry Today
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. New materials and techniques allow the execution of partial restorations, direct and indirect, with metal-free techniques and started a true partnership between this discipline and prosthodontics. 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. The use of high magnification in the right steps can improve our clinical result and optimize the session with the patient. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.

Hot Topics in Adhesion and Etchable Dental Ceramics
Esthetics and minimally invasive therapy are among the driving forces behind many successful restorative practices. Key among the tools clinicians require to deliver on patient expectations are etchable ceramic restorations and our ability to achieve a durable and long lasting bond when placing them. The technologies utilized, both ceramic and adhesive are constantly being upgraded.

Color in Esthetics: The Science Behind Beauty
This presentation will be very different from programs in color matching, communication and reproduction of natural teeth that you may have attended in the past. The didactic part will emphasize the nature, principles and fundamentals of color, and tools that are essential to master a plan for successful color matching in both office and dental laboratory, together with step-by-step instructions. Examples and practical suggestions will be provided, including the latest changes recommended by the presenter. Dental Color Matcher, a color education and training program for esthetic dentistry authored by the presenter and used by dental professionals and students in 100+ countries, will be demonstrated.

Clinical Performance of Porcelain Laminate Veneers: Outcomes of the Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary (APT) Technique

Clinical Performance of Porcelain Laminate Veneers: Outcomes of the Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary (APT) Technique
The article evaluates the long-term clinical performance of porcelain laminate veneers bonded to teeth prepared with the use of an additive mock-up and aesthetic pre-evaluative temporary (APT) technique over a 12-year period. Sixty-six patients were restored with 580 porcelain lamintate veneers. Over 12 years, 42 laminate veneers failed, but when the preparations were limited to the enamel, the failure rate resulting from debonding and microleakage decreased to 0%. Porcelain laminate veneers presented a successful clinical performance in terms of marginal adaptation, discoloration, gingival recession, secondary caries, postoperative sensitivity, and satisfaction with restoration shade at the end of 12 years. The APT technique facilitated diagnosis, communication and preparation providing predictability for the restorative treatment. Limiting the preparation depth to the enamel surface significantly increases the performance of porcelain laminate veneers.
