2. Title Gap Management in the anterior zone: direct bonding or ceramics, full- or partial reconstructions Some clinical considerations
3. Summary An unfavorable relationship between the form and dimension of the dental arch and the number, dimension and shape of the existing teeth can pose several aesthetic, biologic and functional problems. In this presentation the various restorative options are discussed based on clinical and scientific evidence:
Gap closure and substitution of missing teeth: restorative transformation of substituted teeth into homologous teeth with odontoplasty, direct composite, etched pieces, porcelain veneers or full crowns.
Gap opening and tooth replacement with all-ceramic adhesive or full crown bridges, or implants.
Gap distribution and restorative compensation with direct composite restorations, etched pieces or porcelain veneers.
Gap shifting and restorative compensation with all-ceramic adhesive or full crown bridges, implants, composite, etched pieces or veneers.
Gap compensation by reconstructive compensation without orthodontics.
The reconstructive tools with special emphasis on the materials and their inherent aesthetics and sustainability are discussed, and numerous cases are presented to illustrate the different concepts.
A workshop is included: treatment planning of cases within this topic, provided by the participants and the author.
