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....

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.

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, softwares and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.

“Finally” - Predictable Indirect Conservative Posterior Restorations
Nowadays the maintenance of “a nice smile” represents the main desire of our patients and the request for tooth colored restorations is very high. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines for obtaining predictable indirect posterior restorations through the evaluation of a correct biomechanical approach rather than giving just a “trendy” adhesive approach.

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.
