Credit Details

Synopsis:
This course describes both the key factors in preparing teeth for all ceramic restorations; crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers. A vast array of different ceramic options, and preparation options are detailed. Main reasons for ceramic failures are also detailed, allowing the clinician to preplan restorations for success.

The concept of fabricating a "gameplan" to create quality preparations efficiently is also detailed. This allows the clinician to reduce patient chair time while increasing predictability of the final restoration. Case studies also serve as an aid to demonstrate several clinical difficulties and how to meet these challenges.
