This presentation is a follow up to the course Fundamentals of Fixed Prosthodontics. Our outcomes are the result of attention to detail and execution. Just as important as technical improvements are in restorative care, we must have an awareness of all the interactions of the choices we make. The ability to bond our restorations allow us to be more conservative in our preparations, but there are fundamental rules which must be adhered to insure long term success. And it is essential we are on the same page with our laboratory support. A simple error in the impression will compound on the laboratory side and result in an unacceptable restoration, wasting valuable chair time and inconvenience to our patients. The fundamental rules of bonding and impression taking are among the many areas covered in this course. This course is a must for all restorative dentists.
