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.
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.
