Porcelain Veneer Preparations - To Prep or Not to Prep Porcelain Veneer Preparations - To Prep or Not to Prep

Summary:

In recent years, bonded porcelain restorations have geometrically expanded in their clinical use. Increased patient demands for esthetics coupled with the desire by the profession for conservative treatments have fueled this expansion. Early concerns about the fragile nature of the thin shells of ceramic have been allayed as multiple clinical reports have documented good to excellent clinical success. Because of this documented success, porcelain veneers have been used for more restorative situations and not for just esthetic enhancement. One exhaustive study that followed veneers for up to 15 years reported total failures of only 7%, equaling approximately a 1% chance of failure per year. Of the reported failures, more than half were fractures. Several other reports documenting the success or failure of porcelain veneers cite margin placement and whether or not the margins were placed in enamel as the primary causes of failure.

Short Tooth Syndrome: Diagnosis, Etiology, and Treatment Management
The periodontal-restorative team is uniquely positioned to provide the esthetic procedures thet today' s sophisticated patient population has come to expect. Not only is health and function of great desire but also esthetics is in demand. Armed with periodontal-plastic procedures and technically advanced restarative materials, the periodontal-restorative team can provide these patient needs. The challenge becomes making the correct diagnosis and selecting the appropriate treatment regimen.

Retrospective Analysis of 26 Complete-Arch Implant-Supported Monolithic Zirconia Prostheses with Feldspathic Porcelain Veneering Limited to the Facial Surface

Retrospective Analysis of 26 Complete-Arch Implant-Supported Monolithic Zirconia Prostheses with Feldspathic Porcelain Veneering Limited to the Facial Surface
The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical performances of 26 implant-supported, complete-arch, monolithic zirconia restorations with facial feldspathic porcelain veneers for the rehabilitation of completely edentulous patients. Eighteen patients were treated with a total of 26 complete-arch fixed prostheses. The mean follow-up time was 20.9 months. In total, 154 implants were placed supporting 309 retainers and pontics. The results of this retrospective evaluation showed that monolithic zirconia restorations with facial porcelain veneer provided satisfactory clinical performance and suggest that these rehabilitations are a viable treatment option for completely edentulous patients.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.
