Multi layered 360 composite veneers | Functionality-based aesthetics



Multi layered 360 composite veneers   |   Functionality-based aesthetics

Young male adult 28, presented to our practice requesting aesthetic reconstruction of his teeth. Findings were compromised mastication and poor appearance due to multiple decaysabrasions , all resulting in unstable occlusion (could not chew properly) and bad aesthetics

Our primary assignment was to not drill healthy segments of teeth.

Treatment launched with Digital Smile Design and non-invasive try-in of the intended shape of restorations with a composite prototype – mock up

Physical visualization of the Cad/Cam design helped patient see and sense his new teeth without any drilling or adhesion being applied. Consent given to proceed with the treatment

Cleaning of decayed segments resulted in heavily incongruous appearance of upper teeth

Super-precise navigators fabricated to help copy the new design on teeth. 360 veneers were placed in layers to combine robustness and natural looks

State-of-the-art composite system was used – Asteria by Tokuyama Inc, Japan

As with any of our treatments, our main tasks being by default the following

  • Restore health – removal of decay debris
  • Support and improve function – chew & phonetics
  • Enhance Aesthetics

It is apparent that aesthetics are not our primary task rather than the last. As function defines aesthetics and vice versa, not two separate entities are to be considered. Health is the one and only task that always stands out
