Restoring broken down and excessively carious teeth can be quite a challenge to the restorative dentist. The decision to restore a tooth with partial crown vs. full coverage crown should be based on numerous factors. What is the amount of tooth structure left? Is the tooth is vital or endodontically treated? What is the tooth location in the dental arch? These are few factors among others that influence such a decision.
Through presentations and hands-on, this workshop will discuss in details all factors involved in case selection, preparation guidelines, imaging and impression techniques, as well as bonding protocol of Inlays, Onlays, and Partial Crowns.
After the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify the indications and requirement of Partial Coverage treatment modality.
- Review the guidelines for Preparation, Impression, and Temporization of Inlays, Onlays, and Partial Crowns.
- Evaluate the Clinical Bonding Protocol for Partial Coverage Restorations.
