Cosmetic Dentistry- The Keys to Achieving Ideal Esthetics Using New Technologies

User Ratings -

Course Description

Dental materials, particularly all-ceramic restorations have improved significantly from both an esthetic and functional standpoint over the years. We are now able to offer our patients highly esthetic veneers, crowns, fixed bridges and implant supported restorations fabricated out of all-ceramic materials. Not only have the materials improved, but significant strides have also been made in the clinical means of achieving ideal outcomes. Using a variety of different digital technologies, we are able to offer our patients treatment in less invasive, patient friendly and time efficient means. The focus of this evening session is to provide the general practitioner with key insights in achieving ideal esthetics with new materials and utilizing new technologies. In the first part of the session, we will review a brief history of all ceramic materials, discuss the merits of certain materials over others ant the indications and contraindications of particular materials, such as lithium disilcates, aluminum oxides and zirconium-based materials. Clinical examples of all-ceramic restorations ranging from porcelain veneers, crowns, fixed bridges as well as single and multiple unit implant-based restorations will be presented. The second part of the evening will review modern day means of achieving ideal esthetics using “digital impressions” with several products that are available on the market, including the Itero scanner, E4D and Lava COS. We will also review the use of Encode abutments in clinical practice and a variety of CAD/CAM modalities in manufacturing single unit and multiple unit restorations as well as milled bars in the overdenture application. Objectives: 1. To review the different all-ceramic materials available in the marketplace. 2. To review their indications and contraindications and understand when to use one material over another. 3. To provide an overview of digital dentistry and how to incorporate digital dentistry into your practice without having to invest heavily in equipment.
