Non-prep restoration of an ankylosed incisor: A case report
Piwowarczyk, Andree / Blum, Jasmin / Abendroth, Holger
Dental restorations without tooth preparation are among today's more advanced treatment options. This article presents the case of a young man who was treated with a non-prep laminate veneer that provided 3.5 mm of incisal elongation. A Photoshop assessment and functional evaluation, as well as a wax-up and mock-up, were used during pre-prosthetic planning. A combination of pressable and feldspathic ceramics was used as a restorative material, which was applied to the tooth surface without any preparation of dental hard tissue. An ideal functional and esthetic restoration was achieved thanks to close collaboration between the patient, the dentist, and the technician.
