anaxDENT Double Header: Acrylic Diagnostic Temporary Restorations and The Pink Hybrid Restoration
Note: This clinic is from a past LAB DAY show
Acrylic Diagnostic Temporary Restorations: An easily adjustable, acrylic temporary restoration can be a priceless communication tool. Michel Magne, BS, MDT, focuses on an efficient, economical way to fabricate highly esthetic diagnostic temporaries using New Outline temporary acrylic; reviews the strategy for provisional fabrication in detail; and covers the advantages and disadvantages of the envelope technique. The Pink Hybrid Restoration: Christian Coachman, DDS, CDT, outlines an alternative to existing surgical and orthodontic options to esthetically enhance the deficient anterior ridge. Emphasis is on the analysis, design, benefits and manufacturing of the three-dimensional prosthetic reconstruction of deficient ridges and the restoration's ability to enhance the esthetics of the final tooth form (White Esthetics) and gingival design (Pink Esthetics) as well as lip support. He details a decision-making protocol to help create the most successful esthetic and functional outcome.
