RESTORATIVE CHALLENGE: A 28-year-old female patient presented with large diastemas on her anterior maxillary teeth. She disliked her overall tooth display and "gummy" smile, and the disharmony between her left and right buccal corridors (see Figure 1). Following a complete diagnostic examination, it was apparent that the patient exhibited premature wear and slight—although uniform—discoloration of her maxillary dentition. The patient had no pre-existing restorations.

The Zenostar zirconia restorations were milled using the Zenotec mini from Ivoclar...See more Vivadent, while the IPS e.max restorations were milled in Zenotec Wax for the pressing technique. An appropriate pre-colored disc of the Zenostar material was selected for milling, after which additional color gradients and incisal effects were created using a water color staining technique on the milled zirconia prior to sintering. The post-sintering result was a nice color gradient and incisal effect directly in the zirconia.

The corresponding implant types in the software library were used to plan the bar construction that would be directly screw retained on the implants (right photo). The software stores all files as open .stl files, which can be easily exported.
The bar and connectors were then milled in titanium using the M5, a 5+1-axis simultaneous milling unit, and the bar was polished. Before designing the mandibular bridge, the fit of the milled titanium bar was examined on the master cast.
A digital waxup of the maxillary bridge was created using the Zirkonzahn.

The customized titanium bases were modified on screen to optimize the orientation of the screw-access channels. The software then analyzed the digital waxup situation and adapted it to the gingival and implant geometries.
