The All Ceramic Course: How To Choose The Best Ceramic Material And Prepare For The Different Type Of Crowns We Currently Have?
Hands-on / Online
02 Nov 2017, 09:00 - 17:30 Dubai, UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry

Course description

The participants will first prepare a traditional crown like we use to do for PFM. Then another preparation is going to be done, based on the new concept of full veneers done with glass ceramics. Monolithic structures are going to be simulated. Afterward, a dark stump is going to be used to compare the effect of an opaquer and the different type of ceramic materials. The relevance of cement, space, stump shade and ceramic materials is going to be highlighted. How to temporize those discolored teeth is going to be demonstrated. New cement is also going to be shown.

Course Objectives

  1. At the end of the program, the participants will be able to:
  2. Understand the importance of the choice of the ideal ceramic material for each case
  3. Understand the vast improvements in material science and the treatment possibilities with modern ceramics
  4. Understand the biomechanics involved when teeth are prepared and how to prepare for each ceramic type
  5. Decide when to indicate a hybrid ceramic, a glass ceramic, and an oxide ceramic
  6. Understand the importance of space and stump color
  7. Understand which type of cement is more suitable for each ceramic material
