Single Visit Fabrication of a Porcelain Laminate | New York, NY

Everyone wants a great smile. With daily dental hygiene and regular dental visits, you will generally have a good chance of maintaining a bright healthy smile. But what happens when life happens, and it affects your smile? For most of us, it can be a big deal. You may have a tooth or teeth damaged, or even worse knocked completely out. Now it’s time to make a dental appointment to have a look and to make sure no further damage is happening in your mouth. Depending on your case, everything can be rectified within a few procedures. Luckily when a tooth is lost, there are a few options available in order to repair the damage. Your dental professional will come up with a dental plan that will be sure to renew your smile.

Porcelain laminate veneers can be fabricated using different techniques. All require an impression of the prepared tooth & the opposing arch, preparation of casts, and lengthy laboratory time. However, due to technological advances in dentistry, a dental restoration can be placed in just one single visit. The purpose of CAD/CAM technology is to design restorations within the dental office in a timely, more predictable manner. Not only are the results more predictable, the fatigue resistance and tensile strength of CAD/CAM materials have been shown to be quite excellent.

Computer-assisted design and computer-assisted milling (CAD/CAM) technology has been shown to be a sufficient dental treatment in patients’ cases. Click here to read the full article “Single Visit Fabrication of a Porcelain Laminate Veneer with CAD/CAM Technology: a Clinical Report”.

This is targeted toward a more individual learning experience in a much smaller setting at a more advanced pace. You will prep and cement an advanced case in clinic alongside an instructor. Participate in our marketing panel discussion and bring your practice questions in front of our group of talented dental professionals for resolution.

The prerequisites are very simple. Once you’ve completed programs I & II, you have qualified to enroll in the Masters Group. Only limited to five doctors a session, you will be assigned an instructor trained by Dr. Rosenthal to help you alongside your procedures. Feel free to ask about any questions you may have in order to be able to provide your patient with the most painless, beautifully aesthetic result.

The Rehabilitation of a Smile

A 52-year-old male with a laundry list of dental issues visited one of our senior clinicians here at Aesthetic Advantage, Dr. Larry Rosenthal, in hopes of restoring his smile and bite. After a series of tests, ranging from full-mouth visible x-rays to aesthetic/functional wax-up, it was found that he had the following issues:

  • Severe tooth wear
  • Loss of vertical dimension
  • Lack of incisal guidance
  • Premature contacts in lateral excursion
  • UR bridge with pontic
  • Discrepancy in gingival heights
  • Canines in lateral position congenitally missing laterals

Follow Dr. Rosenthal as he transforms his patient’s smile from ceramic crown fabrication to post-op cementation visit. With “a new lease on life”, the patient feels “20 years younger and just loves his smile”. And what is known as The Simple Makeover all happened in less than two weeks.

Steps in Creating a Beautiful Smile | Aesthetic Advantage

close up smile red lipstickCreating beautiful smiles that complements each individual patient’s facial features is no easy task, but by utilizing a technique that uses facial landmarks to dictate where each tooth should be positioned it can be done. Not only can this technique enhance an individual’s features, it can also allow for a more conservative reconstruction.

By following simple principles concerning the special arrangement of the patients face, clinicians can provide a more natural smile. Some patient’s may be resistant to the technique till it’s explained to them fully. When this technique is done properly it provides natural results that creates a smile that looks like the one the patient was born with.
