Esthetic Rehabilitation of the Anterior Mandible after Tooth Loss due to Periodontal Disease
Kloster, J. / Stork, M.
Tooth loss in the anterior mandibular region can be a challenging situation for dentists and dental technicians tasked to provide an esthetically pleasing prosthetic rehabilitation. For reasons of stability, a solid, torsion-resistant framework is a must in these cases. Metal frameworks have the drawback that thinner ceramic veneer layers may yield esthetically less satisfactory results. Monolithic zirconia frameworks usually do not meet the esthetic requirements of the dentist and patient in these situations. However, care must be taken to ensure sufficient strength even for delicate bridges to achieve satisfactory long-term results. The case described here was treated with the new Celtra Press pressable ceramic system (Dentsply Sirona Prosthetics, Hanau, Germany). This outstanding system combines high strength with brilliant esthetics and is ideally suited for demanding cases such as this one.
