This case-based exercise was created for use in a preclinical operative dentistry course. It is intended for second-year dental students. This case can be used to establish a realistic esthetic clinical situation that may present itself to a dental practitioner. In addition to showing student how the patient presents, this case covers the basics of information gathering for treatment planning purposes, treatment plan presentation, and how to perform the subsequent treatment. This work is effective because it allows the dental student to relate to a clinical situation, determine appropriate restorative treatment options, and implement the proposed treatment.
- Gather the information needed to assess the given clinical esthetic situation and develop an appropriate treatment plan for the patient.
- Determine esthetic treatment options to present to the patient.
