A Restorative Solution to Correcting a Geminated Central Incisor

Description:
A geminated tooth occurs when a single tooth bud tries to divide into two teeth, but the division is incomplete.  This results in a much larger tooth so when it occurs in a central incisor it can become a difficult esthetic problem. This program illustrates a restorative compromise solution to the problem.

Improving the Dentist/Technician Communication for optimum Smile Design and Ceramic Restorations
As modern dentists and dental technicians we need to keep abreast of the latest developments in dentistry and incorporate new techniques and materials into our armamentarium on an ongoing basis. Moreover, it is essential that all the team members participate proactively in the treatment planning process in order to ensure the best possible result for the benefit of the patient. Consequently, consistent interaction among the members of the dental team is required. Technicians should have a basic understanding of clinical procedures and the development of target-oriented communication protocols are essential prerequisites for a smooth workflow and the provision of high-quality service. Dentists should be aware that crucial treatment steps such as the diagnostic wax-up, the fabrication of the mock-up, shade selection, material selection, prep design, and the fabrication of temporary restorations, etc. can be greatly improved by taking into account the technician’s perspective.

Color in Esthetics: The Science Behind Beauty
This presentation will be very different from programs in color matching, communication and reproduction of natural teeth that you may have attended in the past. The didactic part will emphasize the nature, principles and fundamentals of color, and tools that are essential to master a plan for successful color matching in both office and dental laboratory, together with step-by-step instructions. Examples and practical suggestions will be provided, including the latest changes recommended by the presenter. Dental Color Matcher, a color education and training program for esthetic dentistry authored by the presenter and used by dental professionals and students in 100+ countries, will be demonstrated.

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.

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions Premium Member Content

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions
This course will describe a new reality in the creation of CAD –CAM generated restorations. Carestream dental has created a system which allows the user to generate ceramic restorations in office or through an internet portal to a dental laboratory. The system will allow dentist to create single unit ceramic restoration, implant abutments, printed models for orthodontics, and in the future precision implant surgical guides. The course will cover the CS3500 camera acquisition unit, its use, and export of images to the Restore software for restoration design to be milled in office, or export the image file to a desired dental milling laboratory. The design phase using the Restore software and the CS 3000 milling unit will be covered in depth so the viewer will be familiar with the CS system so they will be able to fabricate a milled ceramic restoration in either an open format, milling laboratory or a closed format in their office.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

Using Air-Abrasive Technology to Diagnose

Using Air-Abrasive Technology to Diagnose
National Institute of Dental Research surveys indicate that the Incidence of pit and fissure caries constitutes a higher proportion of the total caries incidence among U.S. teens and children than in the past. Airabrasive technology may provide a more conservative alternative in the diagnosis and treatment of pit and fissure caries than traditional techniques using handpieces. The authors review characteristics of pit and fissure lesions and discuss methods for diagnosing and treating these lesions…

Chu's Aesthetic Gauges: Proportion

Chu's Aesthetic Gauges: Proportion
The Proportion Gauge has the T-bar tip on one end and an In-line tip on the opposite end. The T-bar tip is used on teeth with normal alignment and the In-line tip is used for crooked or crowded teeth where the horizontal arm of the T-bar is obstructed by the rotated teeth. The instrument is used to measure the width and length of maxillary anterior teeth. The tip measurements have a predetermined ratio of about 78% (based on the study results on the average width, length ratio of the maxillary anterior…
