Join Dr. Hornbrook as he discusses the new ceramic systems available and why the elimination of metal in our practices is a more viable option than ever before—and one that should be adamantly pursued by every practicing clinician. The most expensive thing you provide from your lab for your patients is a metal base restoration. The new metal-free systems are more durable, more aesthetic, more bondable, more conservative and have better wear compatibility than metal restorations. Dentistry has always been in search of a replacement for metal-supported dentistry, and the time is now to start exploring the options. This presentation will cover what’s available, when to use what, how to optimize predictability, effective lab communication, reducing remakes, and a thorough understanding of the cementation systems that will optimize results.
