impression on the tooth preparation with 3M Impregum Super Quick Light Body

Easy, quick and detailed impression. The key for a natural fit

In the indirect restorations workflow one of the most important steps is to get an easy, detailed and stable impression. In this way the dental technician can build up a natural and fitted restoration that emulate the aesthetic natural dental tissues and preserve the biology.

For a few preparation units number a faster impression material can be easy and better to use. The impression material we used in this case Impregum Super Quick Polyether is a superfast polyethe with 45 seconds working time and quick 2-minute setting high flow behaviour and high level of accuracy and detail reproduction.

Through the precise final ceramic restorations adaptation we can evaluate the high precision impression detail of the Impregum Super Quick Polyether.

Shade selection with the teeth hydrated. The Vita 3M Master shade tabs was used to make the shade selection. Due to the high value of the anterior teeth and also to match the patient expectations the Shade 0M3 was selected and the photos was send to the dental lab for shade communication.

In the wax-up the volume, inter-dental spaces and tooth proportions was corrected. Was planned make tree glass ceramic veneers on the teeth 12, 11 and 21.

This allow the dentist to be more predictable on the space need for the restorative material and at same time keeps more tooth structure.

Conclusions

The goal of anterior indirect restorations is to replace in a natural outcome the dental tissues. This means put together natural aesthetic, function, precise fit with a healthy biologic integration.

At same time in the dental office a precise impression in a quick time procedure can helps in the daily clinical workflow for some cases when just a few tooth units are prepared.

In a easy and quick way the Impregum Super Quick Polyether gave us in this case a high level of accuracy and detail reproduction that we can see in the ceramic perfect fit and adaptation.
