Dr. Robert Lowe 3 CEUs/Clinical
Sponsored in part by Bisco, Doxa Dental, GC America, Kettenbach, and SS White
Treatment rational and indications for the placement of full coverage all ceramic restorations, aesthetic inlays, onlays, and porcelain laminate veneer restorations will be demonstrated and discussed. Step-by-step techniques are described in detail on tooth preparation, provisionalization, impression making, and delivery using total-etch/resin cement technology and conventional cementation. Minor crowding and tooth malpositioning can sometimes be functionally and aesthetically corrected without prior orthodontics. Case selection and tretment protocols will be discussed for these types of "advanced dental makeovers". Different types of all ceramic full coverage crowns, such as feldspathic, pressed ceramic, lithium disilicate (E.max), and zirconium types will be discussed and preparation protocols presented. Clinical indications for the various types of all ceramic restorations will be reviewed to help the clinician have a clear cut perspective of when to prescribe a specific type of all ceramic restoration for their patient.
