Microinvasive Prosthodontics Using Ultrathin Ceramics Based on Active Color Physics

Roy Samuelsson, DDS/Mogens Gad, MDT/Jorgen Gad, CDT, MC

Pages: 44-54

In modern dentistry, patientsí requests for improved esthetics have become perhaps the most dominant reason for prosthodontic treatment. When subjecting teeth that are more or less sound to prosthodontic treatment, it is important that the technique used will not lead to the destruction of the involved teeth. This article aims to describe how new ceramic technology that uses light diffusion to create a color impression can mimic the natural tooth in a virtually noninvasive manner. It will be demonstrated that the need for space for these restorations is diminished compared to the space required by pigment-containing ceramics. The use of ultrathin restorations will, when properly executed, significantly reduce the risk of negatively affecting the prognosis for the treated teeth. (Am J Esthet Dent 2012;2:44-54.)
