Day 1 -This full-day session will focus on the treatment planning, laboratory communication, material selection, fabrication, and delivery of indirect fixed prosthetics –including porcelain laminate veneers, full-coverage crowns, bridges, and full-arch implant restorations for the edentulous patient. Steps will include diagnostic casts/intraoral scans, communication between the technician/specialists, shade taking, wax-ups, provisional, impression techniques, final delivery, and the importance of photographic case documentation.
Day 2 -This full-day session will focus specifically on the treatment of difficult cases in the anterior aesthetic zone. Pre-treatment tooth bleaching protocols, tips and tricks for shade matching using a tooth shade colorimeter, crossed-polarized light photography, staining + glazing custom shade tabs, and effective ways of communicating with the ceramist will be covered. Additional time will be dedicated to outlining the equipment and techniques used by
the clinician and technician for digital dental photography and collaboration. The hands-on portion will involve the fabrication of a single central provisional crown and the subsequent trimming, contouring, staining, and glazing of the provisional restoration for use as a fully-customized shade tab for the ceramist.
Following this presentation, dentists will:
1. Review various treatment planning principles found in the field of contemporary fixed prosthetics for both traditional indirect restorations and implant prosthetics
2. Analyze many of the current materials available to the clinician and dental technician that can be utilized in the restoration of implants, and fixed crown and bridge treatments.
3. Determine the chairside/benchtop protocols that will ensure the highest level of quality and efficacy that will augment successful patient outcomes in the final product at delivery.
4. Apply new concepts and techniques within the dental clinic and dental laboratory.
