Optimizing Aesthetic Outcomes with Smart Restorative Solutions
Direct esthetic restorative treatment has become one of the most widely used treatment modalities in clincial practice today often challenging the clinicans to meet the needs of their patients. However, smiles can be transformed in a more conservative manner, while achieving the desired esthetics and function. MiCD is “a holistic approach that integrates minimally invasive treatment techniques with esthetic dentistry to enhance the smile while taking into consideration the psychology, health, function, and esthetics of the patient”.
The MiCD philosophy and treatment protocols are aimed at providing a systematic approach to fulfilling the patient’s esthetic demands with minimal loss of tooth structure to help drive efficiency and predictability in daily clinical practice.
This presentation will focus on the application of MiCD concept with comprehensive case analysis, treatment planning and material selection to enable the clinician to provide durable, life-like restorations that meet the patient’s expectation with better long term prognosis.
