Abstract (Croatian)
Cilj: Nezadovoljstvo izgledom prednjih zuba jedan je od čestih razloga posjeta pacijenata ordinaciji dentalne medicine. Izradom ljuski od litijeve disilikatne staklokeramike omogućava se zbrinjavanje prednjeg segmenta koje uz maksimalno očuvanje zubnog tkiva osigurava visokoestetske zahtjeve. Prikaz slučaja: 28-godišnji pacijent došao je u specijalističku ordinaciju stomatološke protetike nezadovoljan izgledom gornjih prednjih zuba. Pacijentu su planirane i izrađene ljuske iz litijeve disilikatne IPS e.max press staklokeramike metodom tlačenja. Zaključak: Odabirom litijeve disilikatne IPS e.max press keramike omogućena je izrada izuzetno otpornih protetskih nadomjestaka minimalnih debljina te visoke estetike uz maksimalno očuvanje zubnog tkiva.
Abstract (English)
Aim: In many cases, patients visit dental offices unsatisfied with the aesthetic appearance of the upper anterior teeth. Lithium disilicate glass ceramic veneers used in the anterior region provide high aesthetics with maximum conservation of the tooth structure. Case report: A 28 years old patient was unhappy with his upper frontal teeth. The lithium disilicate IPS e.max Press ceramic veneers using a hot pressing technique was planned and fabricated for the patient. Conclusion: Lithium disilicate IPS e.max Press ceramics provide the production of extremely resistant and highly aesthetic prosthetic appliances allowing minimal thickness of the bonded porcelain restorations in the anterior dentition and maximum conservation of the tooth structure.
