The presentation will discuss the fundamentals required to accomplish a pleasing, functional and long-lasting esthetic outcome: treatment plan, team collaboration, understanding of the patient’s needs and selection of restorative materials. A myriad of factors affects the esthetic and functional outcome of complex cases.
Properly addressing those factors will facilitate the achievement of a predictable and successful prosthetic rehabilitation. Among others, factors that will significantly improve the functional and esthetic outcome include proper preoperative esthetic and functional analysis, correct data transmission to the laboratory regarding the occlusal plane orientation and inclination, and definition of an appropriate incisal edge position. A close collaboration is also needed between the surgeon and the restorative dentist both for treating natural dentition or dental implants, especially in the anterior area in challenging clinical situations such as patients with a high smile line.
Material selection plays a fundamental role in the management of complex rehabilitation cases. This presentation will also illustrate how to select and optimize the use of metal-free ceramic materials even in full-mouth rehabilitation. Nowadays an innovative operative protocol allows facing highly compromised clinical situations, with a minimally invasive prosthetic procedure (MIPP) that guarantees an excellent, long-lasting esthetic result and a better acceptance of the treatment by the patient.
