With greater public awareness about cosmetic dental reconstructions, the dentist is often challenged with greater demands from the patient. This increased demand for aesthetic restorative treatment challenges the dentist, laboratory technician and dental manufacturers to develop techniques and materials to satisfy the discerning patient. Utilising digital planning, modern materials and effective techniques, the restorative team can succeed in restoring a smile to proper form, function and health. The case presented in this article demonstrates the significance of a systematic approach to planning, preparation and material selection in full-mouth reconstruction of a patient’s dentition.

Now more than ever, it behoves dentists and laboratories to work together as part of an interdisciplinary and collaborative team to coordinate treatment, select ideal restorative material(s), and plan cases, particularly those involving full-mouth reconstructions. Fortunately, a number of digitally based technologies can be incorporated into the treatment thorough diagnostic and treatment planning processes, as well as used for fabricating various components of treatments. When used in combination with a systematic and collaborative plan for preparing and executing treatment, these tools can enable the team to achieve success when restoring a patient’s smile to proper form, function, and health.
