This Lecture and hands-on course will teach participants the laboratory and clinical steps for implementing BFEP’s (bonded functional esthetic prototypes) using a special light cured structural flowable (that can actually be used for semi-permanent restorations) prior to ECR (veneer) preparation to “trial” the smile for increased predictability of case acceptance. The step-by-step process of 2 different types of ECR preparations based on the esthetically driven desired outcome will be demonstrated and completed by the participants.

Innovations in digital dentistry and high-strength all-ceramic systems in conjunction with advanced CAD/CAM technology provide us with more opportunity to offer esthetic and function not only in the esthetic zone, but also in high stress posterior occlusion. Each system requires specific tooth preparation, laboratory communication, surface conditioning for luting. Current ceramic primers and luting cements have made these a reality.
All-Ceramic Restorations in 2020 is an in-depth look at concepts, procedures and products to enhance the durability of these restorations.

This course is designed to provide participants with practical information on indications, selection, tooth preparation, laboratory communication and bonding of current types of all ceramic restorations in light of current scientific and clinical information. Failures of esthetic restorations and steps for intra-oral repairs will be discussed.

  • All ceramic restorations in 2020
  • Clinical considerations of zirconia and IPS e.max lithium disilicate restorations
  • Minimal invasive procedures with CAD/CAM zirconia restorations
  • Bonding and cementing zirconia restorations in light of current scientific information
  • Failures of bonded ceramic veneers: Untold stories
  • Intra-oral repair of aesthetic restorations
  • Discuss clinical considerations of zirconia and IPS e.max lithium disilicate restorations
  • Discuss clinical indications for various type of ceramic restorations
  • Present steps in bonding zirconia restorations in light of current scientific information
  • Discuss minimal invasive procedures with CAD/CAM zirconia restorations
  • Discuss achieving ideal esthetic outcome with monolithic zirconia restorations.
