BACKGROUND: The presence of an interproximal gingival (central) papilla is of prime importance and an essential component of a harmonious and pleasing smile. The aim of this study was to determine the association between the presence of a central papilla and embrasure and crown morphology. METHODS: The study was conducted on 200 periodontally healthy patients. Parameters such a central papilla presence, gingival thickness, crown length, crown width, contact surface, radiographic assessment of bone crest to contact point (BC-CP), and interdental width (IDW) in maxillary central incisor embrasure morphology were recorded...

The present case report describes the application of the connective tissue graft wall (CTGW) technique for the treatment of deep lingual gingival recessions associated with probing pockets and bone loss. Two deep lingual gingival recessions affecting the mandibular central incisors associated with severe lingual attachment and bone loss were treated. The surgical technique comprised a connective tissue graft (CTG) placed below a trapezoidal-type coronally advanced flap (CAF) acting as a lingual soft tissue wall of the infrabony defect...

BACKGROUND: Microdontia of the maxillary anterior teeth occurs quite frequently but is poorly documented. The literature describes several treatment choices, which are often focused on an orthodontic approach rather than a restorative one. The latest trends in restorative dentistry and the new ceramic materials, such as lithium disilicate, allow clinicians to perform esthetic rehabilitations based on microinvasive approaches that are most appropriate for younger patients. SUMMARY: Four patients, all employed in the field of dentistry, presented at our dental practice complaining of diastemata between their maxillary anterior teeth...

BACKGROUND: In clinical practice it is common to observe adjacent multiple gingival recessions (MGRs) associated with noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs). The aim of this 2-year case report was to describe the full-mouth treatment of a patient affected by MGRs and NCCLs, with a combined restorative-surgical approach using a coronally advanced flap (CAF) and a xenogeneic collagen matrix (CM). METHOD: Before surgery, a composite restoration filled the deepest portion of the NCCL defects and was finished at the level of the maximum root coverage (MRC)...

The aim of this case report was to treat eight simultaneous recessions that caused an unesthetic smile in a 27-year-old orthodontically treated female patient and to restore the anterior maxillary teeth in the esthetic area. The treatment consisted of bilaminar mucogingival surgery with a palatine graft and a collagen matrix graft (Mucograft, Geistlich). At 24 months, complete root coverage was achieved in all treated sites, with an increase of keratinized tissue (KT), complete resolution of hypersensitivity, and a high level of esthetic satisfaction...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to measure the clinical crown, anatomical crown, and amount of gingiva covering the enamel of anterior maxillary teeth with soft tissue cone beam computed tomography (ST-CBCT) and thus propose a protocol for the application of this noninvasive method for the planning of esthetic crown lengthening procedures to prevent undesired root exposure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten young patients (mean age 22.8 years) requiring esthetic crown lengthening surgeries but not restorative procedures were included in this study...

Currently, no dental material can exactly match the unique properties of dentin and enamel. Recently, a revolutionary approach was introduced in which a real tooth was utilized in combination with computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to obtain a natural CAD/CAM restoration. After 4 years of clinical service, the case was reevaluated and revealed an optimal condition of the biomimetic restoration.

The esthetic treatment of anterior teeth has always presented a challenge in clinical practice. With the improvement of dental materials, many restorative options such as composite resins, all-ceramic crowns, and ceramic veneers have become available. The current challenge in reconstructive dentistry is to obtain excellent esthetic results while preserving the biological structures involved as much as possible. Thanks to the introduction of high-strength etchable dental ceramics, clinicians and technicians have materials and procedures at their disposal that allow them to restore esthetics and function through a minimally invasive approach...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the dental bleaching efficacy of 37.5% hydrogen peroxide (HP), with and without light activation, in HP-exposed and unexposed areas. METHOD: 28 bovine teeth were selected and divided into two groups (n = 14). Crowns were detached and stained with tea. The gingival half was covered with a gingival barrier. In the incisal half, 37.5% HP (Pola Office+, SDI) was applied three times, with a 1-week interval between applications...

Both hard and soft tissue undergo change after tooth extraction. In particular, the bone tissue surrounding teeth with fenestration or dehiscence defects undergoes dramatic change following tooth extraction, which can compromise further rehabilitation of the area. Adequate alveolar bone volume and keratinized mucosa are critical to the success of implant therapy. Therefore, the anatomic dimension of the alveolar ridge must be adequate to achieve an esthetically acceptable outcome of implant therapy. Previous studies have proposed many clinical techniques for preserving the extraction socket...

OBJECTIVE: The optical integration (OI) of monolithic CAD/CAM materials under 4 illuminations was evaluated using a standardized and clinically relevant method. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighteen inlays were manufactured and placed (glycerin gel). Standardized photos were taken under 4 illuminations (neutral white light direct and indirect illumination, cross-polarized light, fluorescent light). Six evaluators defined the optical integration score (OIS) as the "visibility" of the restoration (0 = worst OI, 4 = optimal OI)...

Although resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) were developed almost 40 years ago, their implementation in clinical practice did not achieve success due to biomechanical failures of the restorative materials. Nowadays, the evolution of ceramic materials and bonding procedures has allowed for the revival of the dental prosthesis. Zirconia is the dental ceramic with the highest flexural strength under compression. However, there are still some concerns regarding the bonding strength of zirconia to enamel that require further research...

A full-mouth rehabilitation should be correctly planned from the start by using a diagnostic wax-up to reduce the potential for remakes, increased chair time, and laboratory costs. However, determining the clinical validity of an extensive wax-up can be complicated for clinicians who lack the experience of full-mouth rehabilitations. The three-step technique is a simplified approach that has been developed to facilitate the clinician's task. By following this technique, the diagnostic wax-up is progressively developed to the final outcome through the interaction between patient, clinician, and laboratory technician...

Prior to initiating any treatment, it is necessary to visualize the desired outcomes. It then becomes possible to formulate the steps required to achieve this result. Digital Smile Design (DSD) utilizes patient input and information gathered through diagnostic procedures to create an esthetic treatment scheme. In the case presented here, the NYUCD Esthetic Evaluation Form, intraoral and extraoral photographs, mounted diagnostic casts, physical examination, and radiographs were the diagnostic modalities. The gathered information served as a starting point for a wax-up and intraoral mock-up...

Restorative procedures are accompanied by a reduction of tooth stability, a decrease of fracture resistance, and an increase in deflection of weakened cusps. The choice between a direct or an indirect restorative technique, mainly in posterior areas, is a challenge, and involves biomechanical, anatomical, functional, esthetic, and financial considerations. In this article, the pros and cons of direct restorations are examined, as well as an analysis of indirect restorations and an overview of dental ceramics...
