Summary:

Statement of problem: Clinical reports of feldspathic porcelain veneered-zirconia crowns placed on teeth with knifeedge marginal finish lines have recently been presented but with data available for only a limited number of crowns in the anterior maxilla. Purpose: This retrospective study evaluated the clinical success and survival of feldspathic porcelain veneered-zirconia crowns fabricated with knife-edge margins in a private practice. Material and methods: One hundred and two teeth (51 anterior, 51 posterior) were prepared with knife-edge margins and restored with feldspathic porcelain veneered-zirconia crowns. The modified California Dental Association (CDA) criteria were used to clinically evaluate subjects recalled between May and December 2010. Data were analyzed with descriptive statistics. Results: The mean follow-up time was 20.9 months (SD, 13.6; range, 10-72). One tooth had to be extracted because of an endodontic problem not related with the restoration, 2 crowns had minor chipping of the veneering porcelain, while no crowns exhibited fracture of the zirconia core. Conclusions: In this retrospective evaluation, feldspathic porcelain veneered-zirconia crowns with knife-edge margins provided clinical performance similar to that reported with other margin designs.

Over the last several decades, dentistry has focused on more conservative treatment modalities and preventive techniques. This has been possible not only because of improved techniques and materials, but also because of the understanding that tooth preparation, regardless of how conservative it may be, is an irreversible procedure

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.

3-D Smile Designing with a Functional Touch: The Dental GPS Way
In this esthetic driven era, the responsibility of delivering something that is functionally and esthetically acceptable is of utmost importance. Today , we have something called Dental GPS which is a software that is available both in a clinician version and lab version. It is not only able to help us with the simulation of the proposed results in less than 5 minutes but also able to help us print the diagnostic M lines to help us mount the casts (using a digital facebow) for 2D wax ups and / or 3D virtual wax ups for 3D printed models. This presentation will highlight the usage, simplicity and precision of planning and execution using the 3D smile design software.

Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion
Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion is a comprehensive approach between occlusion, posture, and function. Overall, this lecture will create an understanding and relationship between the cervical spine and mandibular movements and the trilogy between Joints, Muscles and Occlusion. Most of the patients that we treat for dysfunction, were compromised during the early stages of growth and development. Overtime these created accommodations and compensations in the system induced by the physiology of the airway.

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends Premium Member Content

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends
Nowadays the maintenance of “a nice smiling” represents the main desire of our patients and the request for tooth colored restorations is very high. Predictable and repeatable results can be achieved through materials and clinical practices that, on one hand, preserve the original structure of the compromised tooth and, on the other hand, involve a very low biologic price. New technologies for the enamel-dentinal adhesion and the continuous evolution of more sophisticated esthetic materials as composite and porcelains allow the effective reaching of verifiable and predictable results. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines in both direct and indirect techniques for esthetic restorations through the evaluation of techniques and materials in order to reach correct, standardized and long lasting evidence based clinical results.
