AUTHOR(S): Shilpi Sanghvi, Gaurang Mistry and Asha M Rathod
ABSTRACT:In daily clinical practice, aesthetics of anterior teeth is a common presenting complaint of patients. This case series discusses the management of diastema and proclination of anterior teeth, asymmetric smile associated with unsatisfactory porcelain fused to metal restorations, missing anterior teeth with an unfavourable ridge relation, and missing single maxillary incisor tooth. The case report describes a clinical protocol using a variety of materials, ranging from pressed ceramics, zirconia, and conventional porcelain fused to metal. The treatment planning in all the cases was based on a diagnostic wax-up and cosmetic mock-up. After clinical and patient approvals were obtained, the patients was subjected to restorative treatment. Good planning enables satisfactory aesthetic results, and predictable functional success of anterior restorations.
