A Biomimetic, Minimally-Invasive Approach to Single Central Incisor Class IV Restorations.

presented by:
DR joan gubau mach

The single central class IV restoration is undoubtedly one of the most challenging situations that we can face in Dentistry. Dr Joan Gubau Mach discusses his protocols for planning and executing such cases in a predictable manner. He details the importance of a biomimetic, minimally-invasive approach and gives an invaluable insight into his layering techniques which help him to achieve the incredible, natural results for which he is world-renowned.

Please note that this lecture was recorded in December 2022 as part of the Anterior Composite Resin Masterclass. Dr Joan Gubau Mach has kindly allowed Annual All-Access Members of The Hybrid Layer to view this content.

Aims & Objectives:

1)  Identify which cases are suitable for a non-preparation approach, and when to use a rounded bevel.
2) Understand Biomimetics in order to emulate both the optical and mechanical properties of the natural tooth.
3) The importance of photography and the manipulation of photographs to allow detailed planning of cases; structural mapping; and techniques to minimise the chance of failure during shade selection.
4) Understand opacity and translucency in relation to material selection, and a walkthrough of the layering techniques which Dr Joan Gubau Mach uses to mimic nature.

Lecture Duration: 45 minutes.
Language: English.
