A Multi-faceted Treatment Approach for Anterior Reconstructions Using Current Ceramics, Implants, and Adhesive Systems
Hajtó, Jan / Gehringer, Uwe / Özcan, Mutlu
Of all developments in dental technology, fulfilling the esthetic and functional demands of the patient, especially regarding anterior reconstructions, is still a challenge for both dentists and dental technicians. This becomes more difficult for patients with a previous treatment history that is not ideal. This case presentation demonstrates reconstruction of an anterior zirconia resin-bonded fixed dental prosthesis (RBFDP) for the mandible with a combined treatment approach utilizing veneers for harmonized space distribution on the abutment teeth and an implant-supported zirconia fixed dental prosthesis in the anterior segment of the maxilla. Adhesive cementation of the restorations is also presented in a step-by-step approach based on the current state of the art.
