Rehabilitation in the aesthetic area with litium disilicate in a case of missing lateral incisor
Daniela, 26 years old, with congenitally missing maxillary lateral on the right and a conoid lateral incisor on the other side, among the proposed treatments, chose a only prosthodontic treatment with the aim to rehabilitate her hypodontia and to improve her smile.
After digital preview, diagnostic wax and mock up, it was decided to rehabilitate all the maxillary aesthetics area with litium disilicate stratified with ceramic: bridge from 1.3 to 1.1, classic preparation veneer for 2.1 and “no prep” veneers for 2.2 and 2.3. This choice allowed an important modification of the dental anatomy of 1.3, 1.1 and 2.1 (also with small reduction of overjet and overbite) and a not invasive aesthetic improvement of 2.2 and 2.3.
