About the Case

30-year-old female patient presents for a long-term abscess in upper right central incisor. She also desires to improve the aesthetics of her old composite restoration in adjacent central incisor. Right central incisor is extracted, and Immediate loading implant is performed. After the healing time, left central incisor is prepared for a lithium disilicate veneer. A digital impression is taken to both implant and veneer.
Simplified cementation of both glass ceramic restorations is performed with 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive and 3M™ RelyX™ Universal Resin Cement. They both save steps of this clinical procedure and provide predictable and aesthetic long-term results.
