The keys to success in contemporary aesthetic oral rehabilitation

While adhesive technologies are moving towards simplification, their indications have been significantly broadened.

Sometimes we have some doubts about the ideal treatment for a particular case: should we opt for a direct or indirect rehabilitation? This decision is multifactorial, as is the choice of material to be used in rehabilitation.

In indirect rehabilitation, we can use different materials, depending on the case selection, patient, function and aesthetic requirements. In this field the CAD / CAM technology and materials available for adhesive rehabilitation was developed in the last years. Used and treated properly they allow us to conserve much of the remaining dental tissue, avoiding more destructive procedures for dental structure.

On the other hand, in an indirect rehabilitation, the communication between the clinician, the patient and the ceramist is fundamental, in order to optimize the expectations and the final result. For this it is fundamental to follow a work protocol that goes through different stages, such as: planning, wax-up, mock-up, guided dental preparation, communication with the laboratory, impressions, temporary restorations, adhesion of restorations and maintenance of restorations.

In this two speakers side conference we intend to show and discuss the necessary clinical and laboratory workflow, being the key to success in contemporary oral adhesive rehabilitation.
