Abstract:

Non-invasive and minimally-invasive restorations in vital teeth.
In case of severe dental erosion, the maxillary anterior and palatal aspect of the posterior teeth are often particularly affected.
Restoring such vital teeth in a conventional manner (i.e. crowns) would frequently implement elective root canal treatment and major additional loss of tooth structure. For those reasons we have developed in the department of fixed prosthodontics and bio materials a novel approach to restore those teeth in a minimal invasive way. Which is currently being evaluated by a randomized controlled clinical pilot study.
