A Polychromatic Composite Layering Approach for Solving a Complex Class IV/Direct Veneer-Diastema Combination A Polychromatic Composite Layering Approach for Solving a Complex Class IV/Direct Veneer-Diastema Combination

Summary:

Direct resin bonding represents a conservative means of providing aesthetic restoration of the anterior dentition. Such techniques enable chairside control of colors, morphology, and ultimately, aesthetic results. For optimal integration, the clinician must thoroughly understand the capabilities of resin materials and their behavior when layered in direct resin buildups. This article demonstrates an advanced clinical technique for enhancing the appearance of the anterior dentition as achieved via tooth whitening and a combination of a Class IV restoration and a direct resin veneer.

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…

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.

3 C's of Composite: Contour, Color and Creativity
Mastering composite artistry is the most challenging tooth replacement procedure clinicians are asked to preform. It requires the clinician to understand the optical, physical, handling and mechanical properties of a resin filled with quartz, silica and glass. Combining these attributes to reproduce the natural dentition three dimensionally in contour and color is our goal. Adding a bit of imagination, the clinician can create restorations that are brilliant and ultimately seamless and undetectable.
