Aesthetic dental restoration using direct technique with silicone guides
clinical case report
Keywords:Dentistry, Dental Esthetic, Rehabilitation, Dental Materials
Aesthetic dental restoration has become a highly relevant procedure in dentistry routine, since non-conformities with the aesthetic appearance of the smile are more and more frequent. For such, several techniques and materials are available, including ceramic restorations such as contact lenses, veneers and crowns, in addition to composite resin restorations. Composite resins stand out for their minimally invasive approach, providing favorable optical and mechanical characteristics to the dental structure, which allow to reproduce the characteristics of natural dental tissues, such as translucency and opacity, in addition to ensuring longevity to restorations. Several techniques can be used to perform aesthetic dental restorations with composite resin, among which we can highlight the direct technique through use of silicone guides. Thus, this study presents a clinical case report carried out at the Dentistry Clinic of the Western Paraná State University, wherein vestibular and palatal silicone guides were used for the aesthetic restoration of the upper anterior teeth, to emphasize their laboratory manufacture and clinical application, as well as the advantages of its use.
