Long term Mock-Up: a New Option
Every day patients ask for esthetic treatment and more and more often they want to improve their esthetic in a short time. But there are situations in which it’s impossible to restore function and esthetics without going through an orthodontic treatment, in order to give the prosthodontic or restorative clinicians the best way obtain the best results. However, at the end of the orthodontic treatment, the prosthetic finalization must be delayed for 6-12 months, waiting for the occlusion adjustment and recovery. During this time, it’s mandatory to stabilize the results providing provisional restorations. In this fields, EGR (Esthetic Guided Restorations) can be widely and conveniently employed. They allow to maintain stable occlusion combined with good esthetic in front teeth. The shell of EGR are completely pre-polymerized with an high conversion degree. This mean more stability during time in abrasion, color, mechanical properties etc.
At this time, as the occlusion is stable, the patient may begin the prosthetic treatment with porcelain veneers.
