The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx

Description:
Thru the direct Aesthetic Provisional Application technique, the provisional will serve as a preparation guide, aesthetic guide to both patient and lab as well as an occlusal guide. This gives the practitioner total control over the case, gives the patient a true visualization of what the permanent teeth will look like and gives the laboratory an accurate tooth position to be copied into final form. The d-APA is done with flowable compostite in the patient’s mouth thru a series of additions and reductions to the teeth to gain final position. Although challenging, the technique becomes very rewarding by placing artistry and control into the hands of the dentist.

Very good presentation, Michael and the format is the new standard of esthetic dentistry today.

Interesting case. However, I would have corrected this pt's mal-alignment prior to placing veneers.

Yu Cheng Chu - (12/26/2014 7:24 PM)

Dr. Apa, do you have a course for this technique? Thanks!

Great Technique. I have been doing this for a while and it truly is a motivating moment. When recreating a smile design, I struggle with the tooth form decision and seem to end up with the same design almost every time. When "simply" enhancing the smile, I tend to copy the original tooth form unless there are strong patient preferences. I wonder if you have away to predict proper tooth form without a lot or trial and error. I have been guilty of designing square teeth for men and rounded teeth for women.

RUBBERDAMology: Tips and Tricks With Isolation
It is well known that all dental work must be under full control by operator. We always try to do our best during root canal treatment, or placing composite restorations, or luting bonded ceramic constructions. We pay a lot of attention to details and procedures, learn all new aspects of operative dentistry, follow all steps and protocols but… some time do waist our invaluable time due to challenging with moisture – saliva, bleeding, tongue, chicks, lips that are often on our way to reach the goal. And this competition is always more stressful then other most important components. Fortunately we have got great assistant for this “dirty” job that gives us stress-free conditions of working, saves our time and health and gives best ergonomics. It is rubberdam. During our lecture we will open all secrets how to use this most helpful system in operative dentistry controlling our main task – treatment.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia Premium Member Content

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

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.

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.
