All ceramic aesthetic restorations
Today’s aesthetic dentistry invests in a broad range of knowledge coming from many sciences and arts.
The need for optimum results in the areas of aesthetics, function and biocompatibility, necessitates more and more the use of all-ceramic restorations, implants, and their combination.
However knowledge, talent, technique, artistic ability and perception of the dental technician remain the biggest and perhaps the most important factor to create impeccable work. The dental technician must have the ability to assess every single time all the factors, in order to select a suitable patient therapy, and also to modify his technique wherever it is necessary for the design and execution, so that the best result can be obtained.
In this presentation will be described step by step the daily laboratory process, and the way that art and technology in combination with artistic ability, manage to fulfill with great success excellent accuracy for the requirements of each individual case. Methods and handling for analysis and design will be described in order to understand and be able to select the proper solution for the optimal result.
