Composite Veneers: The Direct-Indirect Technique

Newton Fahl, Jr, and André V. Ritter

The direct-indirect technique for composite resin veneer fabrication brings together many of the distinct advantages of the direct and indirect techniques. A direct-indirect restoration is one in which the composite resin is sculpted directly on the tooth structure without previous adhesive preparation, light activated, removed from the tooth, heat tempered, finished and polished extraorally, and finally adhered indirectly in the mouth in a single appointment. The resulting restoration exhibits improved mechanical properties, excellent esthetics, and unrivaled marginal adaptation and polishing. One of the most significant advantages of this technique is the possibility to modulate the final color of the restoration with luting agents, allowing for minor modifications in the restoration hue, chroma, and value. Furthermore, the direct-indirect technique has a wide range of applications, including prepless contact lenses and veneers, veneers with preparation (discolored teeth), fragments, diastema closure, and noncarious cervical lesions, among others. This book systematically covers these many applications and provides step-by-step protocols with specific layering strategies for each. Fifteen detailed case studies are included to showcase the technique in various clinical scenarios, highlighting the materials used and the type of composite veneer selected in each situation. Written by world-renowned masters in their field, this book will surely help to elevate your esthetic outcomes.

Tooth-Preserving Surgery

Andreas Filippi, Sebastian Kühl (editors)

Despite all of the advances that have been made in implantology, many patients still want or need to keep their natural teeth for as long as possible. Tooth-preserving surgery has been performed for hundreds of years, but the last 10 to 15 years have shown a resurgence and a great increase in knowledge regarding these techniques. The aim of this book is to present modern methods of tooth-preserving surgery so clinicians can expand the range of treatments offered in daily practice or to bring them up to date. This volume is not intended as a textbook, but rather as an illustrated atlas and reference work. Each surgical technique is systematically described with indications and contraindications, step-by-step surgical procedure featuring case examples, as well as prognosis and potential complications. Armed with knowledge of methods old and new, clinicians can evaluate whether their patients’ teeth—even potentially hopeless teeth—might still be preserved.

Dentofacial Esthetics: From Macro to Micro

David M. Sarver

Orthodontic treatment generally aims to improve the occlusion and smile esthetics of the patient. But the patient’s overall facial appearance determines how they look to others, not just their smile. This book dives deep into dentofacial esthetics and teaches you how to evaluate each patient who walks through your door from the macro to the micro, focusing first on the big picture and then working your way to the minute details in order to treatment plan for the best possible outcome. The author’s mantra is that “If you don’t see it, you won’t treat it,” so his goal is to educate dentists and orthodontists about what they should be seeing in order to yield maximally esthetic outcomes, taking into consideration concepts like esthetic balance and smile projection. This book will teach you to see the face and dentition in a different way, guiding you to understand what the problems are, how to think your way through them and put them in a perspective so that you and the patient can agree on the focus of treatment, and then how to choose the most appropriate and effective treatment methods. An invaluable resource for any orthodontist or esthetic dentist.

Tilted Implants: Implant-Prosthetic Rehabilitation of the Atrophic Patient

Enrico Agliardi, Davide Romeo

When presented with atrophic arches, clinicians often turn to invasive techniques such as bone grafting or maxillary sinus augmentation. However, using tilted implants instead can avoid these aggressive procedures, allowing the implant support to be moved posteriorly and for longer implants to be chosen. The implants can be loaded immediately to support a full-arch fixed prosthesis in multiple configurations, such as All-on-4, transsinus implants, zygomatic implants, or the authors’ signature V-II-V technique. This book first presents the science and clinical evidence behind the various protocols using tilted implants, then proceeds to discuss patient evaluation, diagnostics, and planning before diving into the methods themselves. Procedures are discussed separately for each arch, highlighted by dozens of clinical cases representing a diverse range of initial situations. In addition to the surgical protocols, methods for fabricating provisional and definitive prostheses are laid out with each step illustrated and explained. This comprehensive volume truly covers everything a clinician needs to know to use tilted implants with great success for their patients.

Simplified Regenerative Procedures for Intraosseous Defects

Leonardo Trombelli

Despite decades of well-established nonsurgical and surgical protocols and techniques, the treatment of deep intraosseous lesions still represents a challenge for clinicians. Therefore, the purpose of this textbook is to present simplified procedures that can be used to treat even the most difficult clinical scenarios. Both surgical and nonsurgical regenerative treatment options are presented and discussed in great detail, including types of instruments and regenerative materials to use, patient and defect evaluation, and step-by-stop protocols for various evidence-based procedures. Detailed clinical photographs and radiographs accompany each discussion to demonstrate the ideal initial situation for each method and the impressive results that can be achieved by following it. A significant portion of the book is devoted to the single-flap approach, a technique developed and refined by the authors over many years to simplify surgical treatment while providing the best results for the patient. Both students and experienced professionals will find this atlas a welcome reference when encountering periodontally involved teeth.
