About the Event

For the Dentist, Hygienist and any interested Auxiliary

Several new all-ceramic restorations have made serious in-roads into the number of PFM’s being done every year. CAD/CAM technology in the dental laboratory has helped to make these restorations more consistent in terms of fit, contact and occlusion. Full contour zirconia restorations have already made large inroads into the industry, and their use will be discussed, as well as the proper cementation/bonding protocol for these restorations.  Digital shade taking has improved to the point where in addition to dentists using it, many labs QC their restorations with it as well. A prep technique will also be demonstrated that ensures adequate reduction, nearly perfect margins with relatively little effort.

Course Objectives:

After completing this program, the dental professional should be able to:

· Be familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of monolithic and              bi-layered restorations, especially including indications, contraindications and prep design.

· Learn the different types of zirconia oxide restorations and their indications, and why polished zirconia is preferable to glazed zirconia.

· Understand the use of a prep technique that will impress your lab by improving the quality of your preps and impressions.

· Be familiar with full contour zirconia and the pros and cons of using this structural ceramic material as a crown and bridge material, and be familiar with the decontamination and cementation protocol.

· Be familiar with the new class of cementable all-ceramic restorations such as lithium disilicate, and understand how the CAD/CAM milling process can improve consistency and quality.

· Understand why the shade guides many dentists use today are inadequate, and what shade guide can cut your shade remakes in half.
