Aesthetic Realization. Connection between Dentists and Technicians
Virtual Classroom
22 Nov 2020, 14:00 - 18:00 Online Event Area of interest: Dental Lab, Cosmetic Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Restorative Dentistry

ARE YOU P.O.P (Personal Oral Protocol)?
The operating mode from A to Z live for the development of an aesthetic project.
The daily use of digital tools forces us to find a method to simplify our actions.
To optimize our working time by increasing the quality of our prosthetic achievements, we need to ask ourselves the right questions:

  • What information is necessary for the creation of an aesthetic prosthesis (photo, spectrophotometric study, digital impression, mandibular dynamic information)
  • How to simplify these steps to make them accessible on a daily basis (integration of the Raypliquer spectrophotometer)

To answer this, we will discuss several areas during the master class.

First part: the P.O.P “Personal Oral Protocol” protocol.
Second part: how to use the Rayplicker spectrophotometer. Shade taking and photo-transfer into the study software what information the software gives and how to use it.
Third part: The choice of materials according to the color:

  • For a realization in the office (chair-side technic)
  • For a realization in the laboratory

The different techniques:

  • When to use makeup
  • When to use the cut-back
  • When to use layering

Fourth part: The milling as well as the work of the surface condition, makeup, glazing, mechanical polishing will constitute the last part.
