Evening Lecture Series- The CAD/CAM Ceramic Update in Esthetic Dentistry
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.

Learning objectives:
• 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.
