All-Ceramic Crowns and Veneers in the Aesthetic Practice

Event Details

In the modern age of patients demanding more aesthetic and natural looking restorations, this two day course covers the use of ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers, onlays and crowns) from treatment planning to preparation and cementation. A thorough clinical assessment with comprehensive planning of the patient will be emphasised with the use of diagnostic waxups in the workup of anterior restorations. Understanding the principles of smile design and communicating with patients will be emphasised and allow the practitioner the confidence to plan cases predictably.

The myriad of different ceramics available will be discussed with their indications and alternative approaches to their implementation. Preparation and provisionalistion techniques will be practiced within an intensive hands-on workshop and participants will be expected to complete multiple preparation of porcelain veneers, onlays and crowns.

With the evolution of different ceramics, it has made the area of cementation somewhat confusing with questions being asked… “do I need to cement this or should I bond this?” Different cementation techniques from conventional, self-adhesive to adhesive bonding will be explained and simplified with an outline when each technique is indicated. Participants will practice what is sometimes a stressful procedure, the adhesive cementation of veneers, with useful tips and hints that will make this less nerve wracking!
