The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome.

At-Home Bleaching: A 25-Year Retrospective Premium Member Content

At-Home Bleaching: A 25-Year Retrospective
The concept of at-home bleaching self-administered by the patient and supervised by the dentist became widely known in the profession about 25 years. At the time, little was known about bleaching except that application of a peroxide-based gel to the teeth could substantially lighten them in 4-6 weeks. Since then, a large volume of laboratory and clinical research have greatly expanded and enhanced our understanding of the process. This presentation provides a brief summary of what we have learned over the last 25 years, including how bleaching works and how long it lasts, safety issues, side effects such as tooth sensitivity, effects on teeth and materials, extended uses for bleaching, and over-the-counter options.

Big Picture Planning: A Comprehensive Surgical and Prosthetic Workflow Premium Member Content

Big Picture Planning: A Comprehensive Surgical and Prosthetic Workflow
This seminar will highlight interdisciplinary aspects of treatment to achieve optimum outcomes in challenging cases. The cases presented range from single tooth replacement in the esthetic zone to full-arch rehabilitation and reconstruction of composite defects with restorative and surgical modalities. Emphasis will be placed on meeting and exceeding patient needs and working as a team in an everyday private practice setting. Surgical modalities presented will include creation of optimum hard and soft tissue architecture as well as peri-implant tissue modification procedures prior, during and after implantation. Diagnostic considerations for prosthetic rehabilitation of failing dentition and composite defects will also be discussed through case presentations.

Mastering Anterior Composites: 3D Layering Technique Premium Member Content

Mastering Anterior Composites: 3D Layering Technique
The aim of this presentation is to present an individual three-dimensional layering technique with contemporary composites. This novel procedure is indicated in moderate to extensive crown fractures and is considered predictable after eliminating the parameter of thickness while layering restorative materials.

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions
Dental erosion is a global health problem that can lead to significant functional and esthetic impairments of the affected patients. Treatment of sever cases with augmented loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) represents a challenge for both the dental team and the patient. CAD/CAM technology was used in the presented case to analyze the inter-occlusal space. The case report documents a practical, digital approach and discusses the advantages related to treatment time, ease of treatment, and predictability.

Updating Classifications of Ceramic Dental Materials

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.

Retrospective Analysis of 26 Complete-Arch Implant-Supported Monolithic Zirconia Prostheses with Feldspathic Porcelain Veneering Limited to the Facial Surface

Retrospective Analysis of 26 Complete-Arch Implant-Supported Monolithic Zirconia Prostheses with Feldspathic Porcelain Veneering Limited to the Facial Surface
The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical performances of 26 implant-supported, complete-arch, monolithic zirconia restorations with facial feldspathic porcelain veneers for the rehabilitation of completely edentulous patients. Eighteen patients were treated with a total of 26 complete-arch fixed prostheses. The mean follow-up time was 20.9 months. In total, 154 implants were placed supporting 309 retainers and pontics. The results of this retrospective evaluation showed that monolithic zirconia restorations with facial porcelain veneer provided satisfactory clinical performance and suggest that these rehabilitations are a viable treatment option for completely edentulous patients.

Bonding and Cementing Zirconia Restorations: Current Clinical and Scientific Information
Zirconia continues to play a significant role in modern restorative dentistry. From Implants to abutments all the way to frameworks and monolithic crowns. How we manage the process of bonding and cementing these restorations is extremely important to their long term retention and success. This presentation highlights the different approaches available today and specifically defines protocols with clinically relevant research.
