Questions & Comments

I like the case,,, like the crown lengthening and the prep,,, but i didn't like the shade of veneers and opacity,,,, they are so bleach, so opaque....

Ashraf Awadalla - (11/21/2010 7:58 PM)

Dear Dr.Salama Thank you for your comment,I agree one hundred present with your second treatment suggestion,however I did not see any improvement in the amount of over-eruption and pt still show 8-9 mm at rest ,orthodontic treatment would have helped to intrude anterior teeth,and expand upper arch ,even if there is no over jet I still believe it would serve her better without cutting her teeth.I would like to hear from you if intrusion and upper maxillary expansion and correction of the central line would be the wrong treatment. Dr.A.Awadalla

Ashraf;
Unsure about your suggestion. It appears that she displayed minimal overbite on her pre-op images and that the incisal edge positions were in harmony with her lower lip. As an orthodontist and periodontist, I often try to treat these cases with conservative treatment like ortho intrusion of the Maxillary incisors followed by some minor GV but I don't think that this case would have been best treated in that manner due to the above.
But, I love the discussion and appreciate the post.
Dr. Salama

Ashraf Awadalla - (11/21/2010 7:01 PM)

This is the wrong treatment for that case,you are aware that the problem is dento alveolar over growth,should have been treated conservatively with orthodontic treatment,rather the very aggressive crown lengthening followed by more destruction placing veneers on a beautiful dentition.

"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines Premium Member Content

"The Rise of the Machines" Creating the Digital Dental Team: Man, Materials, and Machines
The new millennium has brought many advances in dental ceramics. None more important than processing techniques using Cad-Cam technology. These technologies have allowed the use of high strength glass ceramics and solid sintered Zirconia based ceramics that could not be used with conventional techniques. Thus, today it is possible to generate any type of indirect dental restoration with a Cad-Cam device. To date, no system has the ability to layer machined substrates to maximize anterior esthetics, which provides an excellent opportunity to use or combine the best of the human world with the best of the machine world to develop world-class anterior esthetics. This presentation will cover, “THE CURRENT POSSIBILITES FOR THE BOUTIQUE DIGITAL DENTAL LAB and IN-OFFICE DIGITAL DENTAL TEAM”, and the clinical and laboratory steps in the process for different types of restorations, along with esthetic enhancements for the use of these ceramics.

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.

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.

An Esthetic Alternative in Full-Coverage Restorations

An Esthetic Alternative in Full-Coverage Restorations
All too often, restorative dentists are faced with the dilemma of not being able to provide the ceramist the optimal space for maximum esthetics. The reasons are numerous, yet the problem still remains. The dental industry, along with the dental laboratory industry, has developed numerous full-coverage restorative options to obtain maximum esthetics. These include, but are not limited to, feldsphatic porcelain crowns or porcelain jacket crowns, In-Ceram (Vita Zahnfabrik; Distributor, Vident) and…

Diagnostic Waxing Transfer From Diagnostic Casts to Soft Tissue Definitive Casts

Diagnostic Waxing Transfer From Diagnostic Casts to Soft Tissue Definitive Casts
Fabricating quality anterior esthetic restorations, such as porcelain veneers and crowns, requires the fabrication of a soft tissue definitive cast with removable dies and a hard stone gingiva. This cast is essential to the integration of the definitive restoration with the architecture of the gingiva.
