Ceramic application in the anterior teeth using the micro-layering technique

Minimally invasive preparation techniques are becoming increasingly popular in dentistry, particularly when anterior teeth are concerned. As dental technicians, we are required to restore the natural dentition and achieve the expected esthetic result even if space is limited. The material should enable us to mimic nature in the cervical area, but at the same time provide the value and translucency required in the esthetic zone. Micro-layering is the most widely used technique for the fabrication of metal-free restorations. By applying minimal amounts of layering ceramic, excellent esthetic results can be achieved on lithium disilicate. In order to perform this procedure in an effective and efficient way, we need guidelines or rules that we can follow.

Course content:

  • Preparing the surface and shape of the chosen framework
  • Understanding transition lines
  • Understanding the translucency and value levels of the material used
  • Preparing ceramic mixtures with different degrees of shade and value to achieve  the expected esthetic result in the patient
  • The different transition levels in the incisal third
  • Characterizing layered surfaces with stains
  • Creating translucency when space is limited
  • Creating different surface textures and degrees of surface lustre based on the chosen morphology
  • Achieving high-gloss polishing results on layered and non-layered lithium disilicate surfaces
