The Trial Smile Experience

Description:
Have you ever thought that if your patients only knew how much a smile makeover could enhance their faces, they would be interested in cosmetic dentistry? The Trial Smile Experience is an interactive exercise that demonstrates the facial improvement that your patients can expect to achieve, while building trust and eliminating their fear of the unknown. In addition, the model of the trial smile allows the clinician to communicate the esthetically driven aspects of the treatment plan to their technician and specialists. This tool is sure to create more cosmetic dentistry in your practice, and you will learn: • When the Trial Smile Experience is most effective • How to use digital photography for co-discovery with your patients • Techniques for performing an effective clinical mock up (trial smile) • How to use the mounted trial smile model and digital images to communicate with your technician and specialists

Thank you for your questions. Susan is teaching at the Pankey Institute this week. She uses the trial smile for both composite and porcelain cases. The final restorations in this case including the canine were done in composite.

I really enjoyed your presentation, Dr. Hollar! When you reestablished the canine guidance on the female patient in this video did you do so with composite or a bonded porcelain restoration? Do you have more thoughts on the materials to use in this situation? Thank you!

Thank you, John!

Hi Ajay, when the diastema is large, more teeth should be restored in order to maintain a pleasing height to width ratio of the restored teeth. In other words, keep in mind that beautiful central are usually approximately 11 mm long and 8.5 mm wide, and try to stay in a comparable range. Also, laterals usually have about 1/3 less width that centrals. Proportions are important.

Thank you Jyothi!

Hi Ruchika, The steps between the trial smile and the final restorations could be several more webinars! I became better at creating trial smiles by using composite everyday in my prctice, for tempoaries, esthetic bonding, trial smiles, etc. I began to practice sculpting in my early years with wax while working on diagnostic waxups. Thanks for your interest!

Thank you Maurice, I have not used digital smile design. I prefer the direct method because I feel that the lip boundries vary when speaking and smiling, and can be so different from one patient to another. Thanks again for your interest! Susan

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels Premium Member Content

Indications of In-Office Treatments: Topical Fluoride, Varnish, Foam and Gels
A study conducted in the 1990s, demonstrated a steady rate of decline of instances of coronal caries through the 1980s. This decline was attributed to an increase in oral health education regarding diet, oral hygiene and an increased awareness about the benefits of applying fluoride-containing topical treatments such as dental sealants varnishes, foams, or gels to the teeth of individuals of all ages in moderate-to-high risk groups for caries. This presentation reviews the history, efficacy, and indications. You will learn the history of all varnishes, differences in fluoride foams and gels as well as which fluorides work best for different patients and practices.

A Simple Technique to Create an Interim Provisional Restoration
It is usually a challenge for a patient to feel immediately comfortable with his or her new smile. One of the best ways to gain patient acceptance of the new smile is to place provisional restorations that mimic the final ceramic restoration in both tooth form and color.

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.

Aesthetic Design Preservation in Multidisciplinary Therapy

Aesthetic Design Preservation in Multidisciplinary Therapy
Complex perio-prosthetic cases that require multidisciplinary therapy often result in compromised aesthetics. Traditional treatment planning philosophies, as well as existing interdisciplinary relational patterns, do not promote the achievement of predictable aesthetic results. Implementation of a restorative-driven approach requires the development of an aesthetic blueprint that will serve as a guide through treatment. This article illustrates the clinical techniques and sequence for an outcome-based protocol…
