Enhancing esthetic treatment outcomes and patient experiences
Esthetics in dentistry requires artistry and proficiency in restorative and technical procedures, however where surgery is required, the surgical team members must approach treatment planning and flawless execution with the same mindset for excellence. When successful, the white and pink balance and interplay are key to a pleasing esthetic outcome; poor soft tissue form cannot be compensated for with high-end ceramics and vice versa. This presentation will explore why today’s surgery should be based on a digital workflow, from planning through surgical and restorative performance. This philosophy differentiates practices with patient-centered focuses, improves their productivity while promoting a less stressful environment, and ensures optimal collaboration for the entire team which ultimately improves treatment outcomes.
- Extra/intraoral documentation in the digital workflow: the impact on planning, establishing appropriate decision guidelines and execution of predictable treatment protocols;
- Concepts and materials to maximize bone and soft tissue volume and contours in implant dentistry and natural teeth;
- Methods to influence marginal tissue color and form to complement ceramics.
