Maxillary and Mandibular Rehabilitation in the Esthetic Zone Using a Digital Impression Technique and CAD/CAM-fabricated Prostheses: A Multidisciplinary Clinical Report.

Abstract

Interdisciplinary treatment planning is necessary in certain clinical situations to optimize esthetic treatment outcomes. Patients presenting with severe wear of their anterior teeth from iatrogenic influences pose a particularly difficult problem in terms of esthetic treatment planning. Collaboration of practitioners from the disciplines of orthodontics, periodontics, and restorative dentistry is essential for the treatment of patients with complex esthetic dental needs. Careful assessment of clinical situations and corresponding specialty consultations are of utmost importance to achieve more predictable and esthetic treatment outcomes. The purpose of this clinical case is to report to the readership a novel digital fabrication of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing milled acrylic provisional restorations and final lithium disilicate definitive restorations after orthodontic and periodontal therapy with virtual master impressions, casts, and articulation.
