TESTIMONIALS:

"This course was simply outstanding and exceeded my expectations. The concept of conserving sound tooth structure and placing supragingival margins is undervalued in dentistry. This course emphasizes techniques to minimize unnecessary iatrogenic tooth trauma that often results with "traditional" prep designs." - Dr. Herb Edwards

"The course was up-to-tand and well organized." - Dr. Jagannathan Ramakrishnan

"The course was very informative, interactive and refreshing. The course director was thorough with the presentation. - Anonymous

SYNOPSIS:

Improved esthetic results achieved with non-metal veneers, onlays and full crowns have increased their use and enhanced patient acceptance and satisfaction. Nevertheless, clinicians often feel that these restorations are more difficult and less predictable than traditional ones. In this course, participants will learn how to properly perform non-metal restorations to make dentistry more predictable, trouble-free and healthier for the patient.

In this workshop, Dr. Ruiz will first demonstrate, on a live patient, an innovative paradigm for preparation and cementation. He will also show a simple and predictable system for performing comprehensive diagnosis, esthetic evaluation and occlusal diagnosis, which is indispensable for predictability, longevity and successful esthetic outcome. In addition, step-by-step techniques and principles for tooth preparation, temporization, and sensitive-free easily bonded cementation will be shown.

During the workshop, participants will perform, in very realistic simulators, tooth preparations specific to supra-gingival dentistry for porcelain veneers and non-metal onlays. Participants will also bond porcelain veneers and onlays using the techniques learned.

UPON COMPLETION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

  • Understand the benefits of supra-gingival dentistry by observing live preparation and cementation procedures for non-metal veneers
  • Know simple and predictable tooth preparation techniques specific to supra-gingival dentistry and perform multiple veneer, onlay and crown preparations in a simulator
  • Be able to use a predictable impression technique; never do a retake!
  • Know how to choose the correct type of restorative material and translucency
  • Understand which bonding systems and cements are most esthetically appropriate to achieve good margin blending
  • Be able know how to perform sensitive-free and easy cementation techniques to both anterior veneers and posterior onlay
