Efficient Layering and Outstanding Aesthetics
The veneer for a zirconium oxide substructure can be fabricated today using the computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), press ceramic or manual layering technique. It is well worth making an informed choice with regard to these possibilities: both laboratory and patient will benefit from this. As shown in the following patient case, the author decided in favour of the layering technique. Aesthetic considerations were what finally tipped the scales in this direction: the goal is an anterior restoration with lifelike characteristics. Only with manual craftsmanship can the corresponding characteristics be incorporated accurately into specifically defined areas of the buildup. It was decided to use the fine-structure ceramic VITA VM9.
