Course outline

The course will start with a lecture that will cover the biological backround 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, oclusal 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 on the long term. Different ceramics will be classified, in order to asses 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 are going to be shown.

The second day, the focus will be on the severe worn dentition, were the need of crowns is going to be discussed. New indications like table tops 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.

Objectives

At the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the biological principles of tooth preparations
  2. Indicate the right type of preparation depending from the patient needs
  3. Understand the advantages of certain materials for each indication
  4. Prepare for inlays, onlays, crowns and oclusal veneers, based on the limitations and advantages of CAD-CAM  and non CAD-CAM technology.
  5. Understand the geometry necessary for improvements of fit and duration of all-ceramic  CAD-CAM and non CAD-CAM restorations.
  6. Discuss how and when cusps need to be covered
  7. Indicate new restorations like table tops and endocrowns for the benefit of their patients

Important note

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