Session

Dental Sciences

Description

Maxillary lateral incisor agenesis is the most common congenitally missing tooth condition in aesthetic zone. It represents approximately 20% of all dental anomalies. It affects dental aesthetics and function in young patients and represents serious challenge for the clinicians. There are several treatment options available. The aim of this study is prosthetic treatment of recontouring of existing canine into a lateral incisor with all-ceramic restorations. Case report: A 20 years old female patient was concerned about aesthetic of her smile. After the clinical and radiographic examination it was verified that the patient presented agenesis of 12 and 22. Treatment planning option proposed was recontouring 13 and 23 by means of preparation for two all-ceramic single crowns. After the preparation the impression was performed using addition silicone. When all the laboratory procedures for manufacturing of all-ceramic crowns were finished, the all-ceramic crowns were tested on the patient and after they were cemented with resin cement. Conclusion: Aesthetics has been increasingly required in today’s dentistry. Respecting the proper indications and therapy, principle of smile harmony, oral rehabilitation and patient’s wish, the solution with two all-ceramic restorations fulfilled aesthetic and functional demands and the patient and doctor expectations as well.
