Recreating an Aesthetic Smile

Multidisciplinary and Metal-free Approach Using CAD/CAM Technology

The aesthetic rehabilitation of patients with functionally compromised dentition frequently involves a multidisciplinary approach.  A correct aesthetic diagnosis, treatment plan, and careful material selection are critical factors in successful restoration. A team approach that includes the clinicians, the laboratory technician, and the patient is essential to achieve the desired result. The following video demonstrates a successful multidisciplinary approach used to recreate an aesthetic smile in a young patient with functionally and aesthetically compromised anterior maxillary dentition.

*Private practice, Cattolica, Italy 

 

Learning Objectives:

This video describes the multidisciplinary restoration of aesthetically compromised dentition in the anterior region. Upon watching this video, the viewer should:

  • Recognize the periodontal, implant, and prosthetic considerations involved in developing natural aesthetics.
  • Understand the role of treatment planning in restorative success.
