The high prevalence of tooth-related diseases, a growing geriatric population and a rapidly growing awareness to replace lost teeth by dental implants force dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons to cope with promises made by implant manufacturers such as “new teeth in one hour”. While implant manufacturers try to maximise their sales numbers by such marketing strategies, it will always be the practitioner’s full responsibility to treat patients with strictly evidence-based treatment protocols, especially when it comes to the immediate functional loading of dental implants.

Bioactive direct composite resin materials like the next generation high strength injectables and low shrinkage packable composites, when used with advanced matrix systems, provide clinicians with an opportunity to adopt a minimally invasive patient-centric treatment approach while preserving sound tooth structure. Material selection is an important step in treatment planning for posterior restorations. The use of bioactive composites under strict isolation with rubber dam helps to achieve aesthetics and function with long-term clinical success while minimising the risk of secondary caries.

Dental technicians routinely produce monolithic crowns and partially veneered mandibular posterior bridges. As a result, they get very excited when something different and highly challenging comes along, such as the individual incisor described in this article. In these situations, efficiency and profitability become secondary. The dental technician just has to take one quick look at the natural adjacent teeth to get the creative juices flowing. As the colour, anatomy and individual details of the teeth are registered, possible outcomes are immediately visualized. The following account is a case in point.

Nature has always captivated us with its beauty. Whether it is a landscape, a sunset or the intricate details of a leaf, one marvels at natural aesthetics. The goal of an artist is to copy nature in every medium: painting, sculpture, music, photography. It is easy to see parallels in dentistry. The teeth and soft tissue display details on the macroscopic and microscopic scale that make up all their beauty. Even the smile has characteristics that define what is beautiful and what is not. Like an artist, the dentist and the dental technician use all their combined talents to create lifelike restorations. The secret to imitating nature is in the details of daily practice and hard work.
