Solving aesthetic issues in the anterior region with composite – Clinical Case

December 4, 2019

A 50-year-old male patient presented for professional tooth cleaning. He had deep erosive lesions affecting the vestibular aspects of his maxillary central incisors, which he did not consider an issue. Nevertheless, the team informed him about the options to improve the aesthetics and protect the remaining tooth structure.

Precisely controlling shade saturation with VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS

November 25, 2019

In the case of reconstructions that have an intermediate shade in whole or in part, near-natural reproduction of the tooth shade is typically demanding. The chroma of the restoration must be adjusted selectively or completely to consistently match the tooth shade. With the new VITA AKZENT Plus CHROMA STAINS (VITA Zahnfabrik, Bad Säckingen, Germany), the shade saturation of ceramic restorations can be controlled in a targeted manner. Dental Technician Renato Carretti (Zurich, Switzerland) uses an anterior crown to show how the shade effect can be systematically influenced with the new stains.

An intelligent treatment concept for the implant-supported individual tooth crown

November 17, 2019

For good healing success and predictable gingiva management during implantation, the soft tissue needs as much rest as possible. Gingiva formers, which also act as a scan body, provide the opportunity to perform a scan without disturbing the healing process.

Reliable planning for an optimal workflow

April 21, 2019

Part of creating an optimal workflow involves the ability to reliably plan for variables that differ with each patient. 3D imaging gives the clinician the ability to view anatomical structures not seen in two-dimensional images. The following case study involving a male patient in need of a restoration shows the advantages of utilising 3D imaging and an integrated digital workflow.

Substitution of two destructive caries with ceramic CAD/CAM crowns in one visit

August 10, 2018

Recently, several new ceramic materials were launched in the market due to the growing demand for safety and aesthetically pleasing prosthetic solutions. CAD/CAM chairside technology has been developed with the aim of manufacturing prosthetic structures with characteristics of constant quality. CAD/CAM technology not only offers the possibility of directly designing a restoration on a computer and automatically obtaining the final product, but also offers many advantages compared to the conventional techniques in terms of speed, precision and ease of use. The following case shows how MyCrown CAD/CAM chairside can change traditional dentistry by opening new ways of solving for both aesthetic and health issues.

When an idea turns into innovation

June 18, 2018

Although the headquarters of COLTENE are in Switzerland, its endodontics plant is in southern Germany. At the factory, located in Langenau, a town between Stuttgart and Munich, 155 employees produce treatment auxiliaries and endodontic equipment in a fully automated and camera- and laser-controlled process. The German location houses an impressive logistics department thanks to the office’s central location. Dental Tribune was invited to learn more about the company’s endodontic products.

Large MODL Class II restoration with ceram.x® SphereTEC one, Palodent® V3 and SDR® Plus

June 10, 2018

A 43 year old female came to my practice with a history of non-attendance. She was concerned about generalised sensitivity with her heavily-restored dentition, many teeth of which featured extensive composite restorations with recurrent caries detectable both clinically and radiographically. Certain teeth with extreme structural compromise were planned for bonded porcelain restorations, however, restorations like this large MOD were planned to be restored with direct composite due to financial constraints.
