Restoration of the worn and broken down dentition can be a complex problem that historically was treated with full mouth rehabilitation with full coverage crowns, The development of modern dental materials has led to novel injectable resin techniques that allow aesthetic and functional rehabilitation of tooth wear. These techniques can be also adopted to treat cosmetic problems in an efficient and conservative manner. Historically the use of reductive and often invasive techniques with the use of full crown restorations led to unnecessary destruction of tooth structure leading to a heavy biological cost with pupal and periodontics sequalae, as well as the financial costs of extensive treatment. There may be the need for long term full crown restoration however often patients may be unable to afford the financial outlay with indirect procedures and the use of transitional restorations with composite resin can often also be used to spread out treatment costs and still offer comprehensive treatment outcomes.
Modern techniques focus on the use of adhesive materials allowing rehabilitation often in an additive technique utilising all existing tooth structures. This protocol requires an understanding of how to deal with the aetiology of tooth wear, the functional and occlusion requirements of increasing the vertical dimension and the correct application of adhesive protocols and resin addition to provide long term successful rehabilitations.
This lecture and hands on workshop will outline the steps involved in treatment of advanced cases of tooth wear and aesthetic rehabilitations
• Dahl effect and use in tooth wear
• Aesthetic treatments such as veneers and diastema closure
• Increasing vertical dimension of occlusion
• Facially generated treatment planning and smile design
• Understanding adhesion and the limits of bonding in functional rehabilitations
Demonstration and participant hands on simulation exercise with the alternate tooth techniques and construction of clear silicone templates for injectable resin technique
