Curriculum Vitae

Paul A. Fiechter

 At international congresses, Paul A. Fiechter is a welcome opinion leader in aesthetics of anterior and posterior teeth. Moreover, he studies intensively the natural chewing surface and its function principle.

 

Until now, Paul A. Fiechter is one of the few opinion leaders strongly engaged in aesthetics and who is able to give detailed statements about the function of the ceramic veneered occlusal surface. Since 1988 he is travelling all over Europe, Japan, South America and the United States giving lectures.

He also played a substantial role in the lab-technical development of the LFC full ceramic system and the Ducera light dynamic sets.

 

During the last years, Paul A. Fiechter studied more and more the light-optic phenomenon of teeth. He has been one of the first opinion leaders worldwide understanding and interpreting the correlation between fluorescence and opalescence in the ceramic layer technique. Shortly he developed in close cooperation with Heraeus Kulzer the Matrix ceramic sets. These ceramic masses interact with changing lighting conditions and produce a natural and lively play of colours.
