This article discusses failures that could occur if meticulous attention is not given to details such as planning the case, conservative (enamel saving) preparation of teeth, proper selection of ceramics to use, proper selection of the materials and methods of cementation of these restorations, proper finishing and polishing of the restorations, and proper(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that there is a reduction in bond strength when a microtensile load is applied to adhesive junctions prepared at 10, 20 and 30 degrees to the usual perpendicular interface. To evaluate the effect of bond angle and adhesive layer thickness on stress levels within the adhesive joint utilizing FEA. METHODS Twenty-four(More)
INTRODUCTION Disinfection of dentin surfaces is desirable so long as it does not interfere with subsequent bonding of adhesive resins. OBJECTIVE To test the null hypothesis that bond strengths to dentin are not affected by previous application of an iodine disinfecting solution. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four extracted non-carious molars were(More)
This article describes a multidisciplinary approach to a functional and aesthetic rehabilitation. In this case study, we successfully corrected an anterior open bite and an exaggerated curve of Spee using restorative modalities while still maintaining a highly aesthetic outcome. The maxillary anterior teeth no longer appear to have a disproportional(More)
