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

A Restorative Solution to Correcting a Geminated Central Incisor
A geminated tooth occurs when a single tooth bud tries to divide into two teeth, but the division is incomplete.  This results in a much larger tooth so when it occurs in a central incisor it can become a difficult esthetic problem. This program illustrates a restorative compromise solution to the problem.

Effective Restorative Dentistry Using CO2 Hard Tissue Laser Premium Member Content

Effective Restorative Dentistry Using CO2 Hard Tissue Laser
The CO2 9.3um hard tissue laser has made restorative dentistry more acceptable to patients mainly due to the lack of local anesthesia required for most all restorations. Procedures will be shown on both virgin teeth as well as replacement of previous restorations. What has been most impressive is how the cutting speed can be varied in both enamel and dentin. Also the efficiency as well as the simplicity of operation will be included. Finally, you will see patient responses after the procedures showing the effectiveness of the laser in anesthetizing the teeth being treated.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

Laser-Assisted Flapless Crown Lengthening: A Case Series
In medicine, and to a lesser extent in dentistry, evolving technologies have served to expand the indications for minimally invasive procedures. In dentistry, lasers, although currently less integral to advances in minimally invasive procedures, are nevertheless evolving as potentially effective adjunctive tools within the therapeutic arena.
