Direct composite restorations in maxillary central incisors with unequal mesio-distal width.
December 15, 2017
All aspects of the esthetics can be more critically evaluated (e.g. color, shape, size, width, intensity of color, value, translucency, form, surface texture, surface luster etc.) between central incisors because of their proximity to each other. In contrast, when observing a lateral or a cuspid, the human eyes cannot see the contralateral tooth at the same time. When matching a lateral or cuspid next to another tooth, the esthetic aspects being compared are different. Thus restoring a single incisor is probably among the most difficult aesthetic challenges for any dentist.
