ADHESIVE ORAL REHABILITATION:
TRIGGER FACTORS TO ACHIEVE CLINICAL LONGEVITY
Laminate veneers, partial restorations and conservative crowns, named “full veneer”, made with ceramic, are predictable treatment options, and have been more and more utilized by clinicians as a predictable type of restorations for anterior and posterior dentition. When bonded to enamel this modality of treatment allows the clinician to obtain a long-term stable result. Utilizing current laboratory techniques, digital technology associate with a strict clinical bonding protocol followed by proper polishing and finishing procedures, is possible to deliver very thin restorations, with minimal loss of hard tissue. This presentation will show some important factors to achieve clinical longevity; in this manner change the way we plan, execute, deliver and control an Oral Rehabilitation made with current ceramic materials.
OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Understand how our knowledge about laminate veneers changed restorative dentistry
Analyze important factors that affect clinical longevity for ceramic restorations
Show the importance of how occlusion determine the selection of the material
