Dentistry that is aesthetic to the patient is an important clinical objective. The knowledge within dental technology, dental science and dental practice has dramatically expanded leading to better quality; artistry and more standards based clinical applications. Ceramics are the most consistently predictable aesthetic dental material. Today dentists can offer more treatment options for patient’s complex problems.
Understanding methods to manage simple and complex restorative issues are critical to improving patient acceptance and even long term ceramic success. Methods to integrate the efforts of laboratory technologists and managing occlusion and patient’s desires can have a profound impact in the practice of dentistry.
