This live 90-minute lecture / hands-on program is designed to introduce simple and consistent techniques for the preparation of natural dentition when full coverage restorations are indicated.

Indications and contra-indications for esthetic indirect restorative materials will also be reviewed and proper clinical adjustment, polishing techniques, and armamentarium will also be discussed and performed by the participant.

Hands-On Learning Objectives:
  • Anatomically prepare teeth resulting in adequate space for proper thickness and contour of restorative materials
  • Recognize how interproximal taper, occlusal surface area, and axial wall length affect retention and resistance
  • Refine the marginal finish line to maximize the fit of the definitive restoration
  • Indicate and contraindicate for different materials, such as high strength ceramics and zirconia used in fabrication of aesthetically beautiful and functional dental restorations will be discussed
  • Express efficient, predictable adjustment and polishing techniques for successful delivery of ceramic restorations
