Friday Courses
Fr247 - Contemporary Ceramics
Time: 9 AM - 4 PM
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes

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.

Saturday Courses
Sa158 - Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes (BFEPs) and Anterior and Posterior Etched Ceramic Restorations (ECRs)
Time: 12 - 4 PM
Type: Participation    Handouts: No

This hands-on course will teach participants the laboratory and clinical steps for implementing BFEP’s (bonded functional esthetic prototypes) using a special light cured structural flowable (that can actually be used for semi-permanent restorations) prior to ECR (veneer) preparation to “trial” the smile for increased predictability of case acceptance. The step-by-step process of two different types of ECR preparations based on the esthetically driven desired outcome will be demonstrated and completed by the participants.
