DIGITAL AESTHETIC REHABILITATION OF MISSING TEETH ON ANTERIOR REGION: CASE REPORT

Purpose: All ceramic implant-supported crowns are common treatment options to mimic the translucent properties of natural teeth for the rehabilitation of missing teeth. Advances in computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), made it possible to extend the application of all-ceramic materials. In this case, rehabilitation of missing maxillary central and lateral teeth with implant-supported all ceramic crown restorations fabricated by CAD/CAM system is reported. Case-report: A 19-year-old male patient referred to Marmara University, Faculty of Dentistry, Department of Prosthodontics with a complaint of non-aesthetic appearance in the anterior region. In intra oral and radiographic examination, loss of maxillary central and lateral teeth were observed. Treatment alternatives were explained to the patient. After orthodontic treatment were completed, two implants (AnyOne, MegaGen Implant, South Korea) were applied to the anterior maxilla. After osseointegration, the scan-bodies were placed on Ti-bases (ZrGEN (C-type) MegaGen, South Korea) and digital impression were made. Implant-supported hybrid abutment with lithium disilicate glass ceramic (IPS e-max, Ivoclar Vivadent, Liechtenstein) were fabricated by CAD/CAM system and then cemented on Ti-bases permanently. Afterwards all ceramic crowns were fabricated by CAD/CAM system and delivered to the patient in the same appointment. Results: The patient had no complaints about aesthetic, function and phonation after prosthetic rehabilitation after 6-months follow up period. Conclusion: Fabrication of all ceramic implant-supported restorations by digital technology is more comfortable and predictable option compared the conventional methods.
