Restorative Material Selection in Modern Prosthetics

Description:
The scope of restorative dentistry is changing at a rapid pace. Technological evolutions in optical scanning, 3D printing, milling and new age materials is in a revolution versus old world concepts. What to choose, why and then when makes the dental team and lab a critical part of the material selection team. What materials are the strongest, most durable and esthetic are key elements in this new world. This presentation will provide you an up to date review of the current materials available and the scientific literature to support specific guidelines as to the selection process. Zirconium, Lithium Disilicates, alumina etc. will be discussed as well as the correct cementation materials with these new products.

Choosing Anterior Ceramics – The Concept of Restorative Volume - Part 1 of 2
In this lecture the author presents reviews significant literature and integrates it with clinical experience to select relevant factors that could provide a logical and practical guideline for restorative decisions in anterior teeth.The presented Concept of Restorative Volume is based on structural, optical, and periodontal factors. Each of these factors will influence the short and long-term behavior of restorations in terms of esthetics, biology, and function.

Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin Premium Member Content

Correction of Tooth Defects and Discolored Teeth Using Direct Composite Resin
For over 50 years dentists have been making instant esthetic transformations using direct composite resin. That technology has been enhanced by the latest nano composite materials. Although the past decade has seen greater use of ceramic materials in esthetic dentistry, direct bonding with these new composites is still a highly valuable procedure. This video will deal with correction of severe tooth discoloration using nano composites. Immediate composite resin bonding can act as either the ideal correction or as an extended trial smile so patients can live with their new smile as long as necessary.

Preventing Subgingival Margins by Implementing Supra-gingival Dentistry Protocol
Restorative margins ending subgingival are considered “normal” and out of the control of the restorative dentist, but in reality subgingival margins are mostly avoidable and preventable! We have the technique and materials to be able to consider all of the above part of the history of dentistry.

Selecting the Right Composite for the Anterior Segment
In this presentation, Dr. Fahl will introduce the necessary concepts for the general practitioner to implement direct composite restorations in the anterior segment. A systematic approach for solving day-to-day challenges will be introduced based on the physical and color properties of current restorative systems. The selection of appropriate materials for distinct areas of the anterior dentition will be discussed and presented within the realm of its clinical significance. Dr. Fahl will include tips and tricks for achieving seamless, long-lasting artistic composite restorations.

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP) Premium Member Content

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP)
The lecture will cover some simple Photoshop techniques to enhance a smile digitally to present to the patient and motivate them to accept treatment. This lecture will mainly focus on the the step-by-step process of how to turn the 2-dimensional Photoshop smile design into a 3D Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes (BFEP’s) the patient wears to verify esthetic and functional acceptance. A very efficient technique using a new highly flowable but highly filled micro-hybrid that uses an injection molding tray technique will be demonstrated. A full arch composite bonding can be done in one hour with this technique. This BFEP technique can be used for “trial smiles” for pre-treatment esthetic and functional evaluation by the patient and the treatment team. It can also be used for long-term functional temporization for years if necessary. The BFEP will then be used as the final guide for preparations for Anterior Etched Ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers and glass ceramics.

The Centripetal Build-Up for Composite Resin Posterior Restorations
This paper introduces a new technique for creating Class II posterior composite restorations - the centripetal build-up. This technique replaces the lost tooth structure from the periphery towards the center of the cavity, thereby achieving better marginal adaptation to the gingival floor. Since overfilling is rare, rotary finishing is minimized. This method allows the creation of long-term aesthetic posterior composite restorations, while utilizing conventional auxiliary (ie, metal matrix bands…
