Bandar, if there is an esthetic defect at the CEJ after crown lengthening then yes composite resin would be my prefered restoration. However, if the tooth color is satisfactory then why not wait until there is a problem and just desensitize the cervical area with any number of desensitization agents.

Creating Tooth to Face Proportion in One Visit Premium Member Content

Creating Tooth to Face Proportion in One Visit
This video illustrates a conservative technique for proportioning teeth to improve the smile and facial appearance as well. The goal in interpersonal contact is to be able to maintain eye to eye contact. However, when a tooth or teeth are out of proportion such as crowded, it becomes more difficult to maintain the eye to eye contact. The solution in this case is cosmetic contouring or reshaping the crowded teeth which provides an immediate esthetic result.

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants

A Technique for Making Impressions of Deeply Placed Implants
Precise fit between dental implants and the superstructure is important for the long term success of implants and implant-supported prostheses. One factor which may influence the accuracy of the definitive prosthesis is the stability of the impression coping in polymerized impression material. In some circumstances, an implant must be placed well below the gingival margin, meaning that most of the impression coping will also be situated subgingivally with no contact with the impression material. This can result in reduced stability of the impression coping, allowing it to rotate when fastening the implant analog. This article describes a simple technique that involves the use of a roll of composite resin, tray adhesive, and a small amount of occlusal registration material applied around a transfer coping in a direct implant impression.

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.

In Practice Maintenance of Esthetic Restorations

In Practice Maintenance of Esthetic Restorations
During my career in dentistry, I have seen patients successfully maintain their restorations for more than 40 years. Other patients have needed replacement or repair in less than 5 years. Why is there such a tremendous range? Obviously, the lifespan of a restoration has a strong correlation to its original fabrication quality. But professional dental oral maintenance plus home care by the patient can greatly influence the lifespan of restorations as well. This article addresses the basic elements…
