The recent evolution in CAD/CAM and ceramic technologies offers a whole new range of esthetic, less invasive, and long-lasting treatment options. However, there are still many questions: What are the best materials considering the large variety of ceramics available today? What ceramics can be used with chairside CAD/CAM systems? Do different ceramics require specific laboratory and clinical treatment? What cements or bonding protocols should I use for the different ceramics to avoid failures? Is all zirconia the same? Can I bond to zirconia and make resin-bonded bridges? What are the best materials on implants and why? And where is the scientific evidence on all these topics?
This presentation will answer such questions and provide an update on esthetic treatment options with ceramics from conservative partial-coverage laminate veneers and onlays to resin bonded bridges and implant-supported restorations.
• Differentiate modern ceramic materials and their indications
• Learn about CAD/CAM technology and its diverse applications in esthetic dentistry
• Understand strategies for success with ceramic restorations for teeth and implants based on the current scientific evidence
• Comprehend clinical guidelines for long-lasting esthetic restorations from laminate veneers and onlays to resin bonded bridges and implant-supported restorations.
Participants will earn 2 continuing education credits for attendance.
