The "Secret" of Esthetics, from lab to operatory

In this chapter we will deal with the treatment of patients who have high expectations as far as the dental restoration is concerned. The different steps in aesthetic analysis will be shown as well as the technical execution to achieve a natural looking restoration. Devotion to aesthetics combined with technical skills will lead to aesthetical predictable justified restorations. Aesthetics means more then just a beautiful restoration. To take aesthetics in consideration -the theory of beauty- the restoration has to be in harmony with the soft tissue.
In implant prosthodontics, the age-old practice has been to correct vertical defects by using extra-long teeth. The new gold standard is to reconstruct artificial gingiva to look deceivingly lifelike.
