Simultaneous replacement of maxillary central incisors with Cerec biogeneric reference technique: A case report


Akgungor, Gokhan; Sen, Deniz; Bal, Eray; Özcan, Mutlu (2013). Simultaneous replacement of maxillary central incisors with Cerec biogeneric reference technique: A case report. Journal of Dental Research, Dental Clinics, Dental Prospects, 7(2):112-118.

Abstract

Biogeneric Reference Technique (BRT) of the CEREC 3D v.3.8 software is an effective technique for single anterior ceramic crowns because it provides computer-controlled match of the tooth form to the contralateral tooth. BRT also enables the fabrication of two or more anterior all-ceramic crowns simultaneously. This clinical report demonstrates the clinical application of BRT for designing and milling two central incisors in one appointment using a single optical impression. After completing the virtual design of the first central incisor, it was copied and a mirror image was created. The second central incisor was designed using this replicated image and therefore a computer-controlled symmetry was obtained. The crowns were milled from monolithic feldspathic ceramic blocks and adhesively luted with dual-cured resin cement following dentin conditioning. At the two-year follow-up appointment, the restorations were intact, no adverse effects were noted, and the resultant appearance was highly satisfactory for the patient. A step-by-step protocol is described from design to cementation of these restorations.
