Cementation of Ceramic Restorations

Description:
Dr. Mitch Conditt outlines a detailed approach to cementation of ceramic restorations. The step-by-step instruction includes proper preparation of the enamel and dentinal surfaces for optimum bonding. In addition, he discusses details of film thickness and application of the adhesive bonding agents and the actual cementation of multiple units.

what type of cement do you use .did you conditioned the ceramic before placing.

Beautiful clinical procedures...but I understand your concerns and it should be noted that there are a number of ways that laminates can be seated but you are correct in that it becomes difficult to make certain no movement has taken place...that is why we normally seat in pairs and then trim and refit the adjacent laminates so as not to have any possible movement. One would think a perfect seating should take place but all too often some slight undetected movement can really ruin all the hard work and time that goes into perfecting the smile.

Good clinical presentation. But...
If you are (or any one is)so POSSITIVE that ALL(at once) of these restorations are going to "STAY IN PLACE" like it is presented, it is "CLINICALLY UN-REALISTIC". Pushing the restoration in to place with finger over the "proximate teeth": no "magic master skills" may prevent the "un-noticeable displacement" of an already seated neighbor! A "rigid seating (index)matrix" allowing to final positioning all at once, or processing alternate teeth at a time may(will)"ENSURES" proper, desired "bond" without voids(in the bond). This is because, once the film thickness is established by final positioning of the restoration...disturbing it(the film) over will have to depend upon "capillary principle" to prevent voids, specially at the margins in particular.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

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

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
This video addresses how to reestablish or maintain papilla height and the facial gingival tissue between a single or multiple missing teeth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant by using an innovative pontic design termed the E-pontic. The anatomical shape of the E-pontic will predictably support and maintain the facial gingival margin and interdental papillae over an acceptable alveolar ridge. The E-pontic design fulfills the prerequisites for maintaining a healthy periodontium and its ability to achieve a predictable long-term esthetic and functional result. The emergence profile of this pontic design that is similar to that of a natural tooth ensures that no palatal gap forms which could potentially cause phonetic problems. Trapping of food particles does not occur because of its unique adaptive design to the pontic recipient site.

Microscopic Dentistry; Practical Use in Restorative Dentistry Today Premium Member Content

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.

The Trial Smile Experience
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

Reconstruction of Tooth Form in Various Anatomical Tooth Combinations
The present article describes the variations in form of anterior teeth, which are important in achieving an aesthetic result. Each tooth is shaped according to the task it must perform and that will enable it to blend harmoniously into the oral cavity. The shape of the anterior teeth are very important from the aesthetic point of view, is dealt with from the standpoint of the dental technician. The numerous possibilities for anatomical tooth reproduction, in order to achieve the most suitable form for each particular case, are highlighted.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).

Restoration and Retention of Maxillary Anteriors with Severe Root Resorption

Restoration and Retention of Maxillary Anteriors with Severe Root Resorption
Background: The authors describe the treatment of three patients who had severe apical root resorption of maxillary lateral incisors caused hy ectopically erupting canines. Ectopically erupting canines derive from a normal path of eruption and may cause resorption of the adjacent teeth.
