4:00pm Questions & Discussion
Annenberg Day Learning Objectives
- Understand the different ceramic materials for their respective esthetic properties
- Properly assess anterior esthetic factors
- Being informed of virtual esthetic design solutions
Morning – Implants
Treatment planning of implant cases requires proper diagnosis, based on conventional and or digital technologies, and full evaluation of hard and soft-tissue volume, quality and quantity.
Treatment objective is to be as minimally invasive as possible in order to reduce treatment sequences.
In case of anterior partial edentulism one ought to emphazise peri-implant soft tissue management, especially when biotype is not favorable in order to reach stable and durable esthetic and biological results.
Key to success is to clearly identify and control all anatomical, surgical, prosthetic and biological factors which impact the final clinical outcome.
These variables include grafting procedures, implant design, abutment type (shape, surface and decontamination), provisional restoration, definitive restoration contour, and the accurate execution of all treatment sequences.
Afternoon – Teeth
Creating anterior inconspicuous esthetic ceramic restorations is the greatest prosthetic challenge for clinicians, along with completing natural-looking and biologically-integrated implant ones.
It requires a good facially-integrated esthetic diagnosis, full understanding of the patient’s expectations and a perfect treatment plan with meticulous execution.
Presently what real benefit can one expect from virtual esthetic design for anterior restorations?
All ceramic materials differ in their respective mechanical and esthetic properties, therefore their proper choice in collaboration with the lab technician is key to the final outcome.
Yet all esthetic factors are critical, especially form, value, translucence or opacity, and fluorescence.
Ultimately one must favor minimally-invasive solutions, such as veneers, rather than full crown wherever possible.
