Esthetic Restoration in the Maxillary Anterior Region
de Oliveira, Marlúcio
The attention of researchers subsequently turned to the development of gingivacoloured materials which can be modelled inside the oral cavity, provide for customised shade matching and permit adhesive attachment to the dental hard tissue. Today it is therefore possible to restore exposed dental necks with light-curing composites which can be individually matched to the colour and texture of the gum and thus help to lend well-balanced proportions to the teeth. The author shows how the highly aesthetic restorative material Amaris was used to treat the clinical case of a 15-year-old patient, who presented with an uncommon example of tooth fusion (synodontia) of the maxillary incisors 11 and 12 and, respectively, 21 and 22, including a diastema.
