A Predictable Way for Function and Aesthetic Direct Restoration in Anterior Teeth-A Case Report
Gusiyska A  | Venkov A.
Abstract: Currently, one of the choices of treatment are the direct adhesive restorationswith light curing composites. By improving the performance and the probability of survival of direct adhesive restorations, numerous studies have been performed in dental scientific literature. Today's direct adhesive restorations allow replacing moderate loss of tooth structure. This has resulted in considerable improvements in medico-biological and socio-economical aspect, as these newer adhesive materials are more conservative and give a perfect esthetic result. Both the enamel and dentin have intrinsic physical and optical properties. Dentin is approximately 20% more opaque than enamel, providing most of the tooth's true color. Enamel acts like a fiber optic layer that adjusts the perception of the underlying dentin color. The qualities of contemporary adhesive light curing materials provide an opportunity for a good biomimetic restoration even at high aesthetic requirements in the front area. Aesthetic results and the average longevity of restorations in anterior teeth are in high correlation with the quality of marginal adaptation. The aim of this case report is to describe step by step the clinical protocol of the restoration process in anterior teeth. Also to discuss the importance of a predictable and reproducible way for functional and aesthetic outcome and last but not least ? to show the management and importance of marginal adaptation.
