Recreating an aesthetic smile: multidisciplinary and metal-free approach using CAD/CAM technology

Giacomo Fabbri, Giorgio Ban, Roberto Mancini


The aesthetic rehabilitation of patients with functionally compromised dentition frequently involves a multidisciplinary approach. A correct aesthetic diagnosis, treatment plan, and careful material selection are critical factors in successful restoration. A team approach that includes the clinicians, the laboratory technician, and the patient is essential to achieve the desired result. The following case presentation demonstrates a successful multidisciplinary approach used to recreate an aesthetic smile in a young patient with functionally and aesthetically compromised anterior maxillary dentition..
