I agree. Great presentation on MINIMALLY INVASIVE TOOTH PREPARATION techniques utilizing Mock-ups. Today we may add DSD prior to Mock-up to idealize proportions with face and lips. Dr. Salama

Thank you .

Dr. Gurel: What's the advantage of doing the incisal modification at the time of preparation or in which cases do you do it?

Michael Kelly - (5/21/2010 12:59 PM)

On cases that are mostly additive, I often will use a siltek stent from the lab to place luxatemp on the teeth. Then prep through this material. This is a large time saver on these cases. On difficult cases, the direct composite mock-up is still the best way. Thank you for the presentation.

thank you for your quick response doctor .A Will follow tips

Galip Gurel - (4/13/2010 1:01 PM)

Dear Dr. Acharya,
It is great to know that this technique is helping you on your esthetic treatments. Here is some details to clear up your questions; First from the wax-up ( from the lab) you will prepare a template. You will fill the inside of this template with a provisional material ( Luxatemp from DMG) placed over the unprepared teeth polimerize it and make your APT. Then check the esthetic design, prep through APT and make your impression after that get back to the same template, fill it with tha same material but now use it as a provisional.
As you mentioned patients never live without any temps.
The tickness of the APT purely depends on your esthetic design and the position of the teeth. We just develop a new materail for the mock-up, you can check the web site of Anaxdent. If you really want to get into details please fill free to contact Ms. Karin regarding our 2 days Hands-on course programmes in Istanbul in that we cover every step A to Z both on live patients and models.

Thank you Dr.Galip I have been following your amazing instructions fora few years now,with great results .I have 3 questions to ask you 1.do you have another APT waiting at the prep visit since ae are going to cut thro one ?Our patients will not usually leave the office without a temp . 2.What is the brand ,material and thickness of your APT 3Where can I find info on Feldspathic technique for veneers ? Looking forward to valuable information from you

Galip......As always, it is a pleasure to listen to you lecture....Following your presentation in Palm Beach last year at the Aesthetic Advantage Symposium, I have made your technique standard protocol in our office. You have created a systematic approach to tooth preparation that prevents over-preparation and preservation of enamel which is the key to long term success. Your technique is organized , efficient and easy to learn. We are also utilizing it in our teachings at the Aesthetic Advantage Continuum...Congratulations for helping to revolutionize veneer preparation. You are well deserving of all the acclaim you are receiving internationally. All the best, Jay

David Garber - (4/9/2010 7:12 PM)

Galip - - watching this again today only emphasized what a significant step in veneer preparation this is . . - - really reversed the interim veneer protocols where we were arbitrarily preparing each and every tooth based on material ceramic needs . . thanks for developing and then sharing so effectively . . .

Ultimate Solution for Minimally Invasive Feldspathic Veneers Premium Member Content

Ultimate Solution for Minimally Invasive Feldspathic Veneers
Full monolithic zirconia with external stain technique is one of the popular preference techniques used today. There are many selections of multi-layered zirconia disks and blocks available in the market, which enable dental technicians to produce faster and more esthetic results. When it comes to anterior fabrication, however, full monolithic is not always the best option to process the case. There are many varieties; unique translucencies and characterization that can be seen naturally, making it nearly impossible to achieve with just an external stain technique. That is to say, in order to achieve a natural and lifelike fabrication, a layering technique must be done. This lecture will speak about all ceramic layering technique with current technology of digital tools and how these technologies may be able to assist us.
