Synopsis:


With the myriad of options available to the clinician, the selection of a “ceramic” material for a restoration can be a daunting task. This presentation seeks to simplify the selection protocol by classifying the materials into either a “glass” ceramic or an “oxide” ceramic. The physical and optical properties of these materials will also be discussed.

The dental laboratory is an essential partner in creating ceramic restorations. As such, providing the necessary information and communication with the laboratory is the key to successful outcomes. Protocols to accomplish this will be presented.

Additionally, when using certain materials, there are several variables that will effect the final shade of the restoration. These factors are discussed and clinical examples are illustrated to best optimize prosthetic results.

Dr Volker is clearly establishing himself as a top educator in our field. He was able to distill the most important interactions and information we must be aware of to maximize our esthetic results with indirect ACC restorations. This lecture provides key information where my shade selection lecture leaves off.
