Dr. Mauro Fradeani


Designing anterior restorations with optimum esthetics requires correct treatment planning, evaluation of a suitable ceramic material, and skillfull application and techniques.
PFMs still remain one of dentistry's primary restorations of choice because of their strength and reliability, however, the use of metal-free ceramic materials allows to achieve excellent esthetic results for veneers, crowns and bridges fabrication reducing the tooth structure removal. Material selection with dental ceramist is fundamental in management of complex rehabilitation cases. Several clinical follow-up of glass ceramic and alumina and zirconia systems indicate the adequacy of these materials for anterior and posterior restorations.
Nowadays an innovative operative protocol allows to face highly compromised clinical situations, even in cases, of full-mouth rehabilitations, with a minimally invasive prosthetic procedure (MIPP) that guarantees an excellent, long lasting esthetic result. Clinical and technical suggestions will be supplied using both pressed and CAD-CAM techniques.
