Enhancing Esthetics & Durability: Multi-Layered Zirconia Facial Cut-Back Designs
This article examines the use of minimal facial cut-back design techniques to achieve optimal esthetic results in anterior zirconia cases. Despite advances in digital dental technology and the development of multi-layered zirconia, layering techniques remain necessary to efficiently match the appearance of natural anterior teeth. The implementation of two different facial cut-back designs, the use of a digital shade-matching system, and the importance of luster in achieving optimal anterior cases are discussed. Also addressed is the significance of proper tissue management, which may involve surgical procedures such as bone scalloping, coronally advancing the flap, connective tissue grafting, and bone grafting.
