Biomimetic implant restoration made of human enamel and CAD/CAM block: a short report
Mandelli, Federico / Ghensi, Paolo / Traini, Tonino
This short report describes a clinical case in which an implant-supported crown was made using an extracted natural tooth as the outer shell. The same tooth had been previously relined for immediate loading without occlusal contacts. Using digital software, a composite resin mesostructure was fabricated in order to place the crown in the correct occlusal position, and the natural crown was ground using a computer-controlled milling machine to perfectly fit on the mesostructure.
