Detailed Course Description for Gingiva Colored Ceramics in Esthetic Dentistry:
1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit)
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
a) Recognize the importance of proper gingival architecture for esthetics
b) Present esthetic solutions to patients with tissue deficiency
c) Design prostheses with gingiva col
Healthy appearance of the supporting tissue and its architecture are key components for achieving an esthetic dental restoration. It is therefore essential that the gingival tissue surrounding a restoration would be similar to that of the healthy adjacent teeth to create the illusion of natural dentition.
Since the majority of patients tend to display a portion of their gingivae in a normal smile, lack of adequate gingival architecture and proper edentulous ridge contour in the horizontal and vertical dimensions may result in compromised esthetics and will, therefore, require further intervention.
The use of gingiva-colored ceramics has been suggested to address the esthetic needs in such patients. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the importance of proper gingival architecture and demonstrate the use of gingiva-colored ceramics in esthetic implant dentistry.
