SUMMARY This case report illustrates a minimally invasive segmental rehabilitation of localized anterior tooth wear using a modification of the sandwich technique, a combination of indirect palatal composite veneers and direct labial composite restorations, at an increased occlusal vertical dimension (the Dahl concept).

This report describes the restoration of an anterior fractured tooth with a fiberglass CAD-CAM post-and-core followed by rapid orthodontic extrusion. The post space was prepared, the post-and-core was luted and a interim crown was luted to allow the tooth extrusion through the use of orthodontic buttons and elastic rubber bands. A lithium disilicate glass-ceramic crown was luted and the case was followed up after 6 and 12 months.

Missing anterior teeth is of great concern during a patient's lifetime in many communities. A variety of treatment options, from implants to traditional bridges are often used in order to replace missing anterior tooth. However, it is often accompanied by variety of barriers such as an increased number of chairside visits and better costs. Fibre-reinforced composites (FRCs) have gained increasing and great acceptance in mainstream prosthodontics as viable alternatives to alloy-based restorations recently. In compaison to other restorative systems this is often a conservative approach that carries a minimum risk of pulp exposure or sensitivity and periodontal inflammation, which maintains the health of supporting tissues. Therefore the aim of this case report was to present a clinical case of a congenitally missing mandibular central incisors bilaterally which were replaced by means of a FRC bridge wherein, we employed a semi-direct (direct and indirect) technique. This technique provides a conservative, esthetic, and noninvasive treatment, economically more acceptable, nonirritating, and noniatrogenic. FRC bridges can therefore be considered as a permanent treatment modality.

The problems of anterior teeth include dental plaque, dental caries, and fracture, which are usually treated with common composite resin clinically. Although good repair effect can be achieved, patients are prone to anterior tooth sensitivity after surgery. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to analyze the cosmetic effect of nanocomposite resin on anterior teeth. Up to 176 patients (176 teeth) undergoing anterior dental cosmetic restoration in our hospital were selected and assigned to the LR group ( n = 88 ) and the NR group ( n = 88 ) according to patients’ voluntary choice of prosthetic materials. The LR group was cured with light-cured composite resin, while the NR group was cured with nanocomposite resin. By comparing the related indexes of patients in the two groups, it was discovered that in the NR group, the excellent and good rate and patients’ evaluation of the repair effect were higher, while the periodontal attachment, gingival index, dental plaque index, VAS score, and the incidence of tooth sensitivity were lower, all P < 0.05 . The results indicated that the nanocomposite resin had significant cosmetic effect on anterior teeth and had application value.
