Bio-Emulation: biomimetically emulating nature utilizing a histoanatomic approach; visual synthesis
Bazos, Panaghiotis / Magne, Pascal
A thorough understanding of the spatial distribution pertaining to the histo-anatomic coronal structures and dynamic light interaction of the natural dentition provides the dental team with the ultimate strategic advantage with regards to optical integration of the final restoration. The second part of this two-part article will attempt to provide insight on the illumination interactivity and the spatial arrangement of the coronal elements of natural teeth through the utilization of this knowledge in the clinical and technical restorative approach. The main goals for this article are to cognize histo-anatomic visualization by introducing: (1) Dynamic light interaction, (2) the 9 elements of visual synthesis, (3) dynamic infinite optical thickness, and (4) amplified visual perception effect of the hard dental tissues. Furthermore, a diversification of photographic illumination techniques will be illustrated in order to juxtapose optical associations between the enamel/dentinoenamel complex/dentin nexus.
