Abstract

The course will start with a lecture that will cover the biological background necessary to make appropriate tooth preparations for all-ceramic restorations. The classic indications are going to be shown in contrast with new indications like non-retentive Onlays, occlusal veneers for the worn dentition and endocrowns. The new philosophy, defect oriented and not material-oriented will prove to be more conservative and more reliable in the long term. Different ceramics will be classified, in order to assess the properties of different materials. Advantages and disadvantages will be discussed. Afterwards, several clinical cases fully documented in high resolution will be presented showing a wide array of preparation techniques and cementation materials and protocols. A comparison between the needs for CAD-CAM and non-CAD-CAM restorations will be given.

The hands-on section will start in the afternoon of the first session. First, preparation guides will be made and several tips for the orientation during preparation will be given.

The biological preparation for inlays and Onlays with and without cuspal coverage is going to be shown. 

On the second day, the focus will be on the severely worn dentition, where the need for crowns is going to be discussed. New indications like tabletops and endocrowns are going to be presented. At the end of the session, an all/ceramic restoration will be cemented as a demonstration. Different cementation materials and techniques will be introduced.

Important note
The course is designed and planned for CAD-CAM users as well as non-CAD-CAM users.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the biological principles of tooth preparations
  • Indicate the right type of preparation depending on the patient needs
  • Understand the advantages of certain materials for each indication
  • Prepare for inlays, Onlays, crowns and occlusal veneers, based on the limitations and advantages of CAD-CAM  and non-CAD-CAM technology.
  • Understand the geometry necessary for improvements of fit and duration of all-ceramic  CAD-CAM and non-CAD-CAM restorations.
  • Know-how and when cusps need to be covered
  • Indicate new restorations like tabletops and endocrowns for the benefit of their patients
