Esthetic diagnosis using V.E.P. allows a precise wax-up building. The next step is a clinical try-in of the mock up using self-curing resin. Mock-up helps shape, esthetic integration and functionnal assessment. Patient and dentist can now discuss and assess any change without any dammage to hard tissues.
Once mock-up is endorsed, preparation can be done.
Calibrated drills helps us to drill neither too much nor to little enamel in the final volume of the restauration (given by the mock-up).
Grooves are highlighted using graphite and gathered with a fine-grained drill.
Adaptation check before and after bonding. Rubber dam is mandatory to me after all those efforts (digital analysis, wax-up, mock-up, conception, try-in …) not to compromise the entire treatment with a blood or saliva droplet at the bonding time.
