 Are you placing the most acceptable crowns?  The crown revolution of the past decade is stabilizing! PFM and cast gold alloy are nearly dead- unfortunately. Should you still be using them? We have in-vivo clinical research on crowns: 22 years on zirconia-based and 11 years on full-zirconia and lithium disilicate. Which are best? Are the new “esthetic zirconias” as acceptable as the former full-strength ones? Are digital scanners mandatory and better than elastomers? Techniques, materials, devices, and technologies related to crowns will be shown and discussed.

Learning Objectives:

1.      List and compare direct crown restorations now available.

2.      Discuss current crown techniques, and necessary materials. 

3.      Decide if you need to change the crown types you are using.

4.      Implement the respective changes into your practice.

You watched many virtual programs during the COVID-19 challenge, but most dentists report they could not match the adequacy of live seminars or hands-on courses. Why, because you had NO interaction with your peers and were inundated with commercial ads, each claiming to have the best product of its class available. Interaction with peers provides a multitude of clinical tips considered to be highly valuable. YOU missed those tips during the pandemic. The 50+ tips in this annually renewed and recurring course will update you with many new concepts from your peers.

 

Learning objectives:

1.      List 10 of the 50 tips you intend to investigate.

2.      Discuss how the 10 tips will potentially help your patients.

3.      Discuss the 10 tips with your staff in meeting for their opinions.
