A Refined Digital Workflow in Complete Esthetics

Description:
Whether it be analog or digital, the DESIGN of a new smile is the most CREATIVE and critical part of the whole workflow and it starts with a direct mock up or a wax up which will be test driven in the patients mouth. It is the first visual communication between the dentist and the patient, and if it is not executed properly, it may create a negative effect on the patient in terms of loss of confidence and case acceptance. Most of all the times smiles are being designed intuitively by the very experienced and talented dentists or the ceramists, limiting this unique part of the design in the hands of the very limited group of dentists. However with the combination of digital and analog tools, today every dentist at any skill level can achieve such amazing smile designs with a touch of a button, without the need of any computer skills. Hence receiving the most unique, personalized smile design, that will be driven by the facial perception and the personality of the patient in 3D, which can be immediately placed in the patients mouth.

Anterior Aesthetic Zone - 100% Digital
Over the past 5 years many digital technologies have merged to allow clinician the opportunity to restore anterior teeth with implants, crowns and veneers. Many of these techniques can now be performed in a 100% digital platform. Utilizing digital imaging, file merging and digital analysis any patient can now be treated with a digital treatment plan: From planning, scanning, designing and printing, the options are endless. Determining the correct and efficient digital path will be presented for these procedures. Ideal capture of information pre-surgically and pre- preparation will allow the clinician ideal control of the hard tissue, soft tissue, tooth structure and implant abutment design. It will be demonstrated how todays digital technologies are predictable, cost effective and easy to learn through our step by step approach

Turning Esthetic Failure into Esthetic Success
This presentation is about a patient who is unhappy with the esthetic result of her anterior restorations although functionally they are acceptable. Dr. Goldstein begins with the patient interview and proceeds to improve the patient's smile via step by step cosmetic re-contouring of the previous dentist's ceramic restorations.

Choosing Anterior Ceramics – The Concept of Restorative Volume - Part 1 of 2
In this lecture the author presents reviews significant literature and integrates it with clinical experience to select relevant factors that could provide a logical and practical guideline for restorative decisions in anterior teeth.The presented Concept of Restorative Volume is based on structural, optical, and periodontal factors. Each of these factors will influence the short and long-term behavior of restorations in terms of esthetics, biology, and function.

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP)
The lecture will cover some simple Photoshop techniques to enhance a smile digitally to present to the patient and motivate them to accept treatment. This lecture will mainly focus on the the step-by-step process of how to turn the 2-dimensional Photoshop smile design into a 3D Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes (BFEP’s) the patient wears to verify esthetic and functional acceptance. A very efficient technique using a new highly flowable but highly filled micro-hybrid that uses an injection molding tray technique will be demonstrated. A full arch composite bonding can be done in one hour with this technique. This BFEP technique can be used for “trial smiles” for pre-treatment esthetic and functional evaluation by the patient and the treatment team. It can also be used for long-term functional temporization for years if necessary. The BFEP will then be used as the final guide for preparations for Anterior Etched Ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers and glass ceramics.

Reconstruccion Protesica Gingival

Reconstruccion Protesica Gingival
La apariencia saludable del tejido circundante y su arquitectura son componentes esenciales para lograr la estética dental. Para crear el efecto de DENTICION NATURAL, es indispensable que el tejido gingival, se vea similar al de los de los dientes circundantes. La cirugía periodontal, siempre y cuando sea predecible es y ha sido un tratamiento de elección, previo a la colocación de la prótesis definitiva. Pero en algunos casos la cirugía es imposible o indeseable. La utilización de la CERAMICA ROSADA, es una solución para defectos gingivales, no solo donde la cirugía gingival no es posible, sino como un tratamiento opcional no quirúrgico o como primera opción.

Finding Z: A Mathematical Method For Predicting Tissue Position After Implant Abutment-Restoration Placement
A visible abutment-restorative interface is a problematic consequence, especially in the esthetic zone. This article presents formulas to predict the vertical tissue position around the abutment-restoration, which can be used both as a guide to the clinical situation and as an aid to computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing design.

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions

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.
