Optical integration is a crucial part of restoration work. This case study shows how this can be achieved in the successful replacement of a restoration on a patient’s upper right central incisor.
Dr Grégory Camaleonte, France.
When replacing a dental restoration, it is important to achieve good optical integration so the patient is satisfied with the result.
In detailed steps, this case study shows the successful replacement of a restoration on the upper right central incisor of a young female patient. A variety of techniques are demonstrated: precisely matching the colour and natural translucency in the incisal aspect of the adjacent tooth; simplifying the build-up of the palatal and proximal wall; reproducing a natural shape and texture in the final stages of the replacement procedure. Good optical integration is ultimately achieved, resulting in a happy patient.
