Inaki Gamborena, Luc Rutten: Achieving a high end esthetic outcome with a team approach and digital communication
- Communication and collaboration between dental laboratory and practice for optimized aesthetic results
- Soft tissue management via provisional restorations
- Prosthetics in focus - for the entire dental team. General session.
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
This presentation will describe their experience in challenging cases as a team in a two-way communication. Clinicians and dental technicians have access to an astounding array of new technologies, tools and materials to design beautiful smiles.
This presentation puts an emphasis on a close co-operation between clinician and dental technician. In addition, a focus is placed on the importance of treatment planning, surgical implant techniques, provisionalizination during healing, soft tissue management and total laboratory restorative design. The ultimate outcome of using zirconium and its excellent long-term behaviour and extraordinary mechanical properties provides a new standard of predictable natural oral esthetics around implants. Laboratory procedures required to create natural gingival ceramic restorations will be explained.
