Description

The challenge of keeping up with the rapidly evolving array of options in esthetic restorative dentistry can be daunting. It is critical that both the dentist and the dental laboratory technician maintain an understanding of the indications and limitations of the various systems. In this presentation, discussed are the indirect restorative materials available, and the strengths and weaknesses of each. Additionally, covered are critical communications that must take place between the dentist and ceramist, and how to determine what materials best satisfy different restorative situations. Subjects presented include, determining when the metal-ceramic restoration is still considered the restoration of choice, what situations are best satisfied by bonded porcelain restorations, which all-ceramic restorative systems can dependably mask discolorations and metallic build-ups, and how some systems match particular shade and translucency situations better than others.

Objectives

Objectives
1. Gain an understanding of the various all-ceramic systems, their relative strengths, methods of fabrication and how they should be bonded or cemented. 2. Learn to recognize which restorative systems might best satisfy a given set of esthetic and functional demands. 3. Learn the critical aspects of preparation design that are unique to all-ceramic, milled restorations and gain confidence in communicating these.
