Aesthetics and Ceramics: Current considerations for sustainable state-of-the-art results - non-invasive techniques versus traditional approaches
For long PFM crowns have been the state of art restorations with regard to the best compromise between longevity and aesthetics. However this classical concept has been challenged first by less up to non-invasive treatment modalities, and second by technically simpler and less expensive all-ceramic crowns , mainly monolithic high strength materials. In addition, CAD/CAM technologies have directed the focus on polymer-materials and high-strength composites.
This presentations will focus on 2 aspects: the optimal restoration of compromised teeth, and the restoration of implants.
The selection process and the potential of different types of restorations including specific advantages in regard to the potential for reintervention are discussed by means of clinical cases and studies under the keyword: exploring and understanding the drawbacks of the present materials, and overcoming current preconceptions by using smart approaches driven by an all-encompassing treatment concept.
