Overview
Bioactive, Universal, Hybrid, Nano-technology, Bulk-fill and Monolithic are all terms being thrown out to describe the latest direct restorative materials. But what do they mean, do they really work and how do they simplify and improve treatment? Understand the scientific as well as clinical advances of these new materials beyond all the hype. With the dramatic shift away from metal supported to all-ceramic crown, confusion exists in selecting the ideal ceramic to use. Should you use monolithic and layered, pressable or milled, cementable or bonded? Man factors need to be considered including strength, translucency, esthetic expectations and ease of cementation. Patient communication is vital. Learn how to select the best crown for each individual situation and perform proper cementation/bonding protocols.



Learning Objectives
After completing this course, participants should understand:
  • Understand how to select and use the latest universal bonding agents, new generation nano-hybrid, spherical and bulk-filled composites and self-healing bioactive restorative materials
  • Be able to treat patients with minimally invasive, age-appropriate materials
  • Understand the different types of all-ceramic crowns
  • Learn how to select, prepare and cement/bond all-ceramic restorations
