Impress with Success! Press, Impress and Cement Using Evidence Based Techniques for Ceramics

Lecture | 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. | One and a Half (1.5) CE Hours   | Category B


Course Description

The rapid rise of digital technologies and ability to fabricate computer-aided design and computer-aided manufactured (CAD-CAM) crowns is transforming the dental profession dramatically.  However, it is clear from the scientific evidence, the ability to deliver a long-term successful restoration is dependent upon many factors not experienced with the traditional fabrication methods.

This course will demonstrate concise step-by-step treatment planning guidelines that fulfill esthetic demands and integrates current adhesive restorative materials with digital technology as well as conventional clinical protocols. Procedures and techniques for esthetic and functional success with high strength ceramics and CAD/CAM technology will be reviewed and demonstrated with the Dental Microscope HD Video, based on the most current scientific evidence, to assess what factors most influence clinical outcomes for ceramic crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays and veneers. 

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate clinical protocols for anterior and posterior ceramic based restorations from preparation to cementation.
  • Demonstrate step by step preparation techniques with the Dental Microscope HD video using specific diamonds for perfect finish lines for all ceramic crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays.
  • Describe scientific and clinical differences between intra-oral scanning versus conventional impressions and when best to use each.
  • Utilize simple and predictable smile design methods for proper treatment planning of esthetic anterior restorations including veneers and full mouth reconstruction.
