VFr321 - Indirect Anterior Bonded Porcelain Restorations A to Z
Time: 8 - 9 AM
Room: ,
Type: Virtual    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00
AGD Code: 250

This one-hour presentation will feature the use of conservative techniques for anterior bonded porcelain restorations and the indications for less conservative techniques when Glass Ceramic veneers are indicated. Covered will be specific guidelines for minimal preparation veneers, normal preparation veneers, and more aggressive preparations and for when it is more appropriate to crown vs. when to veneer. Techniques will be touched on for smile design (analysis) using bonded mock-up techniques that motivates the patient to accept the proposed treatment and allows functional evaluation.  Preparation guidelines will be covered great detail for all clinical indications for veneers and specially how to control tooth reduction. Guidelines will be given on the amount of tooth structure to be removed (if any) based on specific clinical situation.  Current concepts in adhesive cementation and Dentin sealing will also be covered.

This presentation will cover many of the current “hot topics” in current dental
ceramics from minimally invasive veneer restorations, to full coverage monolithic
ceramic restorations. The lecture will discuss how to design and plan an esthetic
case. It will also clarify the most appropriate clinical situations and restorative
requirements of the various ceramic systems from conventional feldspathic
glass systems, glass ceramic systems, to solid sintered mono-phase Zirconia
based systems - both layered and newer higher translucent “monolithic” cubic
phase zirconia materials. Clinical and esthetic guidelines for using these ceramic
systems will be discussed. This presentation will focus on specific clinical
indications and contraindications for the use of the various ceramic systems,
specifically for no-prep, minimal prep, and normal prep veneers, inlay/onlay,
“vonlay (combination of veneer and onlay), and crown clinical indications.
