Esthetic Full Mouth Rehabilitation: 40-years’ experience and perspective

This presentation will outline the simultaneous management of the most relevant esthetic and risk factors in a step-by-step method to maximize success of ceramic materials in esthetic rehabilitation. A long‐term perspective on interdisciplinary esthetic plnning and its impact on gingival management, the most decisive criteria for VDO decision and the sequencing of full rehabilitations will be discussed. Final materials decision will be analyzed on the basis of esthetics rendition and strength properties according to the state of attrition, the severity of the malocclusion and the cause of tooth wear.

The ‘New Normal’ in Digital Dentistry: Intra-Oral Scanner (IOS), Chair Side Systems, Materials, and Bonding

The recent evolution in CAD/CAM and ceramic technologies offers a whole new range of esthetic, less invasive, and long-lasting treatment options. However, many questions persist: What is “the digital workflow” and how to get started with intraoral scanning and other tools? How to select the best materials considering the large variety of ceramics available today? What cements or bonding protocols should I use for the different ceramics to avoid failures? Is all zirconia the same? Can I bond to zirconia and make resin-bonded bridges? And where is the scientific evidence on all these topics?

This presentation will answer such questions and provide an update on esthetic treatment options with CAD/CAM ceramics.

Learning objectives

  • Differentiate modern ceramic materials and their indications
  • Learn about CAD/CAM technologies, digital workflows, and intraoral scanning
  • Understand strategies for success with ceramic restorations based on their specific properties
  • Comprehend clinical guidelines for long-lasting esthetic CAD/CAM restorations
