Aesthetics means differ from cultures and times and also differ from each person`s own thinking. But as a restorative dentist who works for esthetic areas, we need to have certain principles and rationale. Some functions in CAD/CAM looks very useful to match harmonious shape to adjacent teeth and also very effective and efficient when compare to the traditional laboratory technics. Also we will discuss about link abutment (Titanium-Zirconia abutment) which we need for dental implant placed anterior area where the soft tissue is thin.

In general, to conduct aesthetic restorations, various analyses are carried out using a camera from the initial examination with the final prosthesis in consideration. With the reality that many dentists are using digital cameras, it can be considered that the time of digital impression has already started. Just as the recent general trend is that more and more internationally renowned photographers are switching their film cameras to digital counterparts, it is likely that CAD/CAM will show another direction in the area of the aesthetic dentistry that we may want to pursue. With the word `digital`, the convenience and economics often come to mind in the first place. However, from the dental clinical viewpoint, it is important to improve and develop the CAD/CAM system based on understanding its specialty and superiority while respecting the conventional analog techniques. However, a regretful aspect is that it is often difficult to catch up with the latest advancements for proper referencing and follow-up of digital technologies since the CAD/CAM device and material are developing very rapidly. Accordingly, although it is ideal to have hands-on experiences in various digital material and devices, and adapt to their fast changes, it must be stressed that the clinical application is to be implemented on the basis of the proven traditional way of dental clinics in order to obtain better outcomes. This presentation will explore types of approaches that can be made by combining the traditional techniques and the CAD/CAM from the aesthetic viewpoint. In addition, it is hoped and eagerly awaited that the CAD/CAM restoration may play a significant role in the field of the `digital art`.

Porcelain fused to metal crown has been used mostly over the last 50 years for restorations in dentistry. However, the patients` awareness of aesthetic aspect, biocompatibility and the problems such as an allergy to metals led to the growing interest in the `metal free restoration`. In particular, the price of the precious metals that have been mainly used to date has risen drastically, which made them impossible to play their role as oral restorative materials anymore, and in addition, the PFM restoration has intrinsic problems of chipping and fracture. Therefore, the CAD/CAM has been drawing more attention than ever due to the popular needs for the material that is more aesthetic and stronger for restoration of the molar implant. Considerations in carrying out the full zirconia restoration are as follows: 1) strength, 2) combination work, 3) light penetrability, 4) treatment of cracks, 5) the color reproducibility of the block, 6) the abrasivity of antagonistic tooth, 7) low temperature degradation. In this presentation, the color reproducibility of the block will be discussed. One of the biggest reasons for avoiding the full zirconia restoration is that it is difficult to reproduce the natural color compared to the conventional PFM restoration. Thus, many clinicians show reluctance due to the exposure of the ugly block when the coloring on the surface is removed after occlusal adjustment. From the experience of using blocks by Zirkonzahn for more than 4 years, it is considered that these problems can be addressed to some degrees. Accordingly, how to make restorations that are well in harmony with surrounding prosthesis or natural teeth will be discussed.
Novel Connective tissue graft technique for Ridge Augmentation in case of Conventional fixed partial denture : Case reports
Ahn, Myung-Hwan ;

There have been a great number of developments in clinical techniques and dental materials in dentistry to date. Looking at these developments, while it could be seen that functional elements such as mastication were prioritized rather than aesthetic aspect in the past, aesthetic needs of patients have steadily increased over time and accordingly the aesthetic has become considered a priority in the development of dentistry. Although the first to be considered in discussing the aesthetic in clinical dentistry will be the white aesthetic that is the tooth part of prosthesis, the pink aesthetic that refers to the harmony of such prosthesis with gingiva can be an important consideration not to be ignored aesthetically. However, the harmony with the gingiva often cannot be obtained only by the beautiful prosthesis, and in particular, the pontic and implant areas have poor conditions to achieve the gingival (pink) aesthetic due to the absorption of alveolar ridge compared to natural teeth. Among the most important elements of the gingival aesthetic are the gingival level and the interproximal papilla height. It is very difficult to make the gingival aesthetic in the case of insufficient alveolar ridge, and the recovery of ridge volume and contour is necessary in order to overcome this condition. To this end, the most widely used method is the "connective tissue graft". Many techniques of the connective tissue graft have already been introduced for the ridge augmentation, and each technique has different purposes, and advantages and disadvantages. Rather, due to the excessive amount of techniques, there is confusion about selecting the right technique at a certain time. However, the goal is clear. Ways to increase the success rates must be found, and at the same time, a more favorable way to the gingival aesthetic is to be chosen. Thus, in this study, considerations for the gingival aesthetic that makes harmony and the techniques to achieve it are discussed.
Finding a Balanced & Harmonious Esthetic Restorations Protocol

Nowadays, the various developments of the CAD/CAM have been coming to realization at an intimidating speed. However, in the field of the aesthetic dentistry, the extremely natural aesthetics must be realized eventually by human hands, and for this purpose, it is considered that the endless challenges and practitioners` own beliefs are necessary. While practitioners are normally exposed to surgical methods of aesthetic restorations via domestic and foreign books and lectures, it appears that there are not many of such necessary information that is summarized for easy understanding by dental technicians. Accordingly, as a result of pondering over this matter for years, the presenter has been devising the `Esthetic Check List` that is a guideline for the aesthetic restoration practice, and the balanced and harmonious prostheses have been produced based on this guideline. In this presentation, this protocol is introduced.

The word `aesthetic`, one of three functions of the teeth - mastication, pronunciation, and aesthetic - does not simply mean beauty. Aesthetic missing harmony cannot be called aesthetic. It is true aesthetic when the harmony with surrounding teeth and environment such as lips, midline, and facial form is achieved. In order to produce a harmonious prosthesis, sufficient information must be passed on to a technician, and also the technician should request necessary information to the dental office. Good food cannot be made without fresh ingredients. Although fresh ingredients are supplied, delicious food is also not possible without a chef`s cooking skills. The first-class dish is made only under the circumstances that a skilled chef can do his best with fresh ingredients. In this study, the teamwork to be shared between dental practitioners and technicians for harmonious aesthetic prosthesis is discussed.

In the modern society, the awareness of images is affecting the body-related consumer behavior through mass media such as TV and internet, and SNS that has grown explosively with the wide availability of smartphones. As a consequence, the demands for aesthetic treatments by patients who wish to improve their inferiority complex are increasing. Patients who want aesthetic treatments display more active inclinations than those receiving general treatments, and have the expectation for the improvement in images along with the anxiety over potential functional problems and satisfaction about the outcomes. In the consultation of the patient of aesthetic case, the basic starting point is that the surgeon and the patient recognize improvement points that the patient expects through the aesthetic treatment. The consultation starting from the viewpoint of the patient proceeds in a way that the consensus is reached through the medical approach, eventually finding the balance between ideals and naturalness. The consultation process from the initial meeting is established at each stage of treatment, at which the consultation is correctly recorded and shared by the surgeon and the care staff. In addition, the consistent policy is implemented from the initial consultation through to the maintenance care. Together, these will result in the consultation based on the true communications leading to the outcome that satisfies the patient, the surgeon and the care staff, rather than the one that gives the patient an unfounded hope and leads to the unsympathetic outcome. This article introduces the consultation strategy for patients of aesthetic case based on the sympathy with them through cases of aesthetic treatment by type.
