Total Esthetic Reconstruction; A Phased Step by Step Approach Premium Member Content

Total Esthetic Reconstruction; A Phased Step by Step Approach
Most studies report a wait of between six weeks and three months before taking the impression and placement of any type of restoration. But if we manage adequate surgical protocol and include certain processes (subject of the study), we can have more predictable results in relation to the marginal stability in the medium and long term. We are showing Claudia's case she is 20 years old with a clear gummy smile and small teeth in proportion to her face to whom we practice periodontal plastic surgery on ten of her upper pieces from premolar to premolar and cemented her veneers three weeks after the surgical procedure. We also present part of the elaboration process of the indirect resin veneers by our laboratory.

The Biomimetic Approach to Saving Teeth: Minimally Invasive Restorations and Periodontal Surgery Premium Member Content

The Biomimetic Approach to Saving Teeth: Minimally Invasive Restorations and Periodontal Surgery
Stress reduced composite restorations now play a significant role in minimally invasive restorative dentistry. When combined with micro-periodontal surgical grafting techniques to alter gingival levels these procedures save teeth and warrant further consideration in our daily treatment. Our ability to minimize tooth reduction during tooth preparation and still maintain a strength of material and of bonding on previously exposed root surfaces as well as endodontically treated teeth is the future of a truly biomimetic approach. This presentation highlights this biomimetic approach to treatment and showcases the clinicians ability to provide long term management of both function and esthetics. It should open our eyes to the potential of maintaining the dentition of our patients rather than crown or implant replacement.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment Premium Member Content

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.

Selecting the Right Composite for the Anterior Segment Premium Member Content

Selecting the Right Composite for the Anterior Segment
In this presentation, Dr. Fahl will introduce the necessary concepts for the general practitioner to implement direct composite restorations in the anterior segment. A systematic approach for solving day-to-day challenges will be introduced based on the physical and color properties of current restorative systems. The selection of appropriate materials for distinct areas of the anterior dentition will be discussed and presented within the realm of its clinical significance. Dr. Fahl will include tips and tricks for achieving seamless, long-lasting artistic composite restorations.

Updating Classifications of Ceramic Dental Materials
The indications for and composition of today’s dental ceramic materials serve as the basis for determining the appropriate class of ceramics to use for a given case. By understanding the classifications, composition, and characteristics of the latest all-ceramic materials, which are presented in this article in order of most to least conservative, dentists and laboratory technicians can best determine the ideal material for a given treatment.

Planning & Finishing Techniques

Planning & Finishing Techniques
Longevity and optimal aesthetics are critical aspects to consider when planning for direct composite resin restorations. While strength, wear resistance, and superior micromechanical retention are typically associated with functional durability, during the planning stage clinicians must equally consider aesthetic longevity, which includes retension of the original morphology, color stability, stain resistance, and marginal adaptation. To ensure optimum results for direct composite resin restorations,…

The Centripetal Build-Up for Composite Resin Posterior Restorations

The Centripetal Build-Up for Composite Resin Posterior Restorations
This paper introduces a new technique for creating Class II posterior composite restorations - the centripetal build-up. This technique replaces the lost tooth structure from the periphery towards the center of the cavity, thereby achieving better marginal adaptation to the gingival floor. Since overfilling is rare, rotary finishing is minimized. This method allows the creation of long-term aesthetic posterior composite restorations, while utilizing conventional auxiliary (ie, metal matrix bands…
