Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin - Part 3 of 4

Description:
For the past 50 years dentists have been making instant esthetic transformations using direct composite resin. That technology has been enhanced by the latest nano composite materials. Although the past decade has seen greater use of ceramic materials in esthetic dentistry, direct bonding with these new composites is still a highly valuable procedure. This video will deal with correction of severe tooth discoloration using nano composites. Immediate composite resin bonding can act as either the ideal correction or as an extended trial smile so patients can live with their new smile as long as necessary.

I fully agree with you Dr Tran, and much of the problem is the media's computer enhancing of celebrity photos to make the teeth whiter. So patients have a false idea of what even light natural tooth shades are. Nevertheless, we are in a profession that seeks to make our patients happy and if they want extremely white teeth then we have the option to either comply with their wishes or refer them elsewhere.

Thank you Dr. Goldstein for a great presentation. I had patients who requested Cosmedent SB1 shade for 10 direct veneers! and of course they refer their friend who also wants SB1 shade. I dried my mouth trying to convince them to take SB3 but failed! What has the media done to teeth color? The beauty is you did not just change the smile, you've changed a personality! Thanks, Dr. Binh Tran

You are correct...the lighter shade makes the teeth seem like they are more prominent but in this case the shade is, as my good friend of blessed memory used to say, "a patient generated shade" meaning the young lady had been so embarrased with her darkly stained teeth that all she wanted was a smile as white and bright as I could make it. Fortunately, I toned it down from the lightest bleaching shade possible and she was still very pleased as you could hear her comments. I might add, that potential beauty contestants almost always want the very brightest bleaching shades possible because they look good under the bright lights of the stage. I was taught that by one of my celebrity patients and when I doubted the concept, she make me attend her concert and I saw first hand what she meant. This also has led me years ago to adopt trial smiles for almost every patient who wants a smile makeover. Even though we may do esthetic imaging, the 3D trial smile helps the patient see exactly what the final will look like in most cases.

Very good result, considering the original circumstances. However, I believe the shade is far too bride and that makes the teeth to “come forward” and dominate the whole face image.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment Premium Member Content

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.
