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.

DAY 1:

Course Objectives
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.

Topics to 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:

A. Discuss clinical considerations of zirconia and IPS e.max lithium disilicate restorations
B. Discuss clinical indications for various type of ceramic restorations
C. Present steps in bonding zirconia restorations in light of current scientific information
D. Discuss minimal invasive procedures with CAD/CAM zirconia restorations
E. Discuss achieving ideal esthetic outcome with monolithic zirconia restorations


Course Objectives

This live demonstration course is designed to provide participants with practical and clinical information on tooth preparation, provisionalization, internal shade modification and bonding ceramic veneers.
