Our concept for complex oral rehabilitations
Ionut Branzan & Cristian Petri

The new CAD / CAM technology that has recently emerged positively influences the entire scope
of dentistry and dental technology, providing many possibilities of performing dental prostheses, be
they fixed, removable or movable. There are prosthetic restorations which do not reflect just how
much work and effort lies behind them. Discreet, they are harmoniously integrated in the intraoral
environment. Especially for prosthetic restorations on implants, there is a need for an increased
dental and dental technical effort until the final restoration of a patient. This lecture aims to present
the way in which a discreet and harmonious total prosthetic restoration is achieved supported on
telescopes and implants. The concept of conical crowns made using the plating-ceramic technique
with complete ceramics matrix and pure gold matrix has many positive features that facilitate a
long-lasting restoration and high comfort for the patient even for the difficult cases.
