Quest for the All Ceramic Restoration
The all-ceramic, full-coverage restoration has long been the center of the profession's ardent quest for the consummate esthetic restoration. Over the years, we have come to acknowledge the optimal esthetics of the all-porcelain crown, but its tendency to fracture over time rendered it an "alternative" restoration for specifically selected cases when compared to the "workhorse" of porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations. The initial dental feldspathic porcelains exhibited low shear strength with a…
Long-Term Outcome of Cemented Versus Screw-Retained Implant-Supported Partial Restorations
The present study was designed to compare the long-term outcome and complications of cemented versus screw-retained implant restorations in partially edentulous patients. The long-term outcome of cemented implant-supported restorations was superior to that of screw-retained restorations, both clinically and biologically.
CAD/CAM Anterior and Posterior Implant Restorations - Ceramics, Abutments and Design
The use of in-office CAD/CAM techniques will be highlighted to fabricate implant posterior and anterior implant crowns.
The Art of Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Dentistry
We will discuss the use of a diagnostic mock up that will convey the final tooth position and serve as a preparation guide. We will discuss color and temporization techniques and cementation techniques along with recommended products for different types of cases.
Dental Implant Overdenture Clinical Techniques and Tooth Selection - Part 3 of 3
Dr. Aldo Leopardi’s objective for this presentation is to focus on clinical techniques to achieve desired treatment outcomes for stress-broken overdenture designs. A discussion of appropriate tooth/mould selection for function and aesthetics will also be addressed.
Occlusion Simplified - Clinical Techniques for Restoring Anterior Guidance and Opening Vertical Dimension - Part 2 of 3
In this video, learn a practical system for restoring worn teeth, rebuilding anterior guidance, and increasing vertical dimension.
Provisionals - Anterior, Posterior, Single and Multiple Unit
Provisional restorations have become a vital diagnostic and assessment tool to evaluate function color, shape, contour, occlusion, periodontal response, implant healing, and overall esthetics.
Esthetic Case Design and Minimally Invasive Tooth Preparation: The Role of Magnification
In this webinar, esthetic case planning and a new complete protocol of tooth preparation for full crowns will be highlighted utilizing modified enamel chisels and the dental microscope. Multimedia will be utilized for optimal visual learning using magnification photography and videos to focus on specific details required to improve your dental skills. The important role of magnification in dentistry will be further discussed.
Excellence in Cosmetic Dentistry: Replicating Nature, When Nature Has Been Compromised
Drs. Cherilyn Sheets and Jacinthe Paquett discuss the understanding of the art and science of dentistry to create restorations that duplicate nature.
