The Evolution of CAD/CAM Technologies

Description:
The recent evolution in CAD/CAM technologies is breathtaking and enables clinicians and dental technicians to fabricate indirect restorations in the laboratory or chairside in the dental office from a variety of ceramic materials, from resin matrix ceramic materials to silica-based and high-strength ceramics such as lithium silicates and zirconia. It appears, however, that some of these materials lack long-term scientific support and are used profusely with only limited understanding of optical, physical, and biologic material properties. This does not only relate to material properties and fabrication parameters but even more so clinical applications such as cementation and resin bonding protocols, which are critical for the success and survival of ceramic restorations. This presentation will review some of the myths surrounding CAD/CAM ceramics and provide an update on the state of the science on functional, biologic, and esthetic properties of current ceramic restorations.

Dental Ceramics: Material Properties and Clinical Applications - Part 2 of 3
This presentation will give viewers a background of the physical and mechanical properties of current dental ceramics. The material properties of the ceramics will be used to explain clinical recommendations for selecting a restorative material and designing the prosthesis. Additionally, laboratory research data will be presented to help the clinician determine the best method to cement or bond an all-ceramic restoration. Finally, an overview of laboratory fabrication of all-ceramic restorations will be presented in order to show clinicians their options when sending out a laboratory prescription.

Can We Still SAVE Teeth? Modern Periodontal Surgical Concepts for the Natural Dentition Premium Member Content

Can We Still SAVE Teeth? Modern Periodontal Surgical Concepts for the Natural Dentition
Biologic shaping is an adjunct to conventional crown lengthening. Conventional crown lengthening uses the existing margins of an old restoration or the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) of a non-restored tooth to determine the amount of bone removal necessary to establish adequate space for the biologic width. Creating proper space for the biologic width ensures that a new margin will not impinge upon the periodontal complex and reduces the likelihood of future inflammation.

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions Premium Member Content

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions
This course will describe a new reality in the creation of CAD –CAM generated restorations. Carestream dental has created a system which allows the user to generate ceramic restorations in office or through an internet portal to a dental laboratory. The system will allow dentist to create single unit ceramic restoration, implant abutments, printed models for orthodontics, and in the future precision implant surgical guides. The course will cover the CS3500 camera acquisition unit, its use, and export of images to the Restore software for restoration design to be milled in office, or export the image file to a desired dental milling laboratory. The design phase using the Restore software and the CS 3000 milling unit will be covered in depth so the viewer will be familiar with the CS system so they will be able to fabricate a milled ceramic restoration in either an open format, milling laboratory or a closed format in their office.

Guided Preparations and the Future of Minimally Invasive Dentistry
An introduction to describe the use of digitally designed, 3D-printed guides to prepare teeth. This state of the arts technology allows dentists to efficiently prepare teeth and deliver the final restoration in one visit. The objective of this presentation is to provide the audience an introduction to with the advancement of 3D-printing in dentistry and it’s use as it pertains to restorative options. With computer aided procedures we can now digitally design and prepare 3D-printed guides to precisely prepare teeth and deliver the final restoration without the need for a temporary.

Color in Esthetics: The Science Behind Beauty Premium Member Content

Color in Esthetics: The Science Behind Beauty
This presentation will be very different from programs in color matching, communication and reproduction of natural teeth that you may have attended in the past. The didactic part will emphasize the nature, principles and fundamentals of color, and tools that are essential to master a plan for successful color matching in both office and dental laboratory, together with step-by-step instructions. Examples and practical suggestions will be provided, including the latest changes recommended by the presenter. Dental Color Matcher, a color education and training program for esthetic dentistry authored by the presenter and used by dental professionals and students in 100+ countries, will be demonstrated.

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques

Surface Roughness of Restroation Margin Preparations: A Comparative Analysis of Finishing Techniques
This study compared the margin profile and surface roughness created by the tips of four different finishing instruments: fine diamond, dura white stone, tungsten carbide, and ultrasonic diamond-coated tips (UDTs). The aim was to determine which of these instruments produced the smoothest finish and created the most evenly contoured margin characteristics. It was hypothesized that UDTs would produce a rougher dentin surface than a fine diamond bur, that a tungsten carbide bur would provide a smoother finish than a fine diamond, and that the dura white stone would produce an intermediate finish.

The Harmony of Pink and White

The Harmony of Pink and White
Advances in technology have created many options in dental therapy. Implant therapy is becoming widely used to improve patients' oral function and make them satisfied. Clinicians are discovering the anatomical relationship of implant and soft tissue with the limitations of implant therapy. On the other hand, patients are demanding more beautiful smiles. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the harmony of pink and white in esthetic and functional restorative therapy.

Chu's Aesthetic Gauges: Proportion

Chu's Aesthetic Gauges: Proportion
The Proportion Gauge has the T-bar tip on one end and an In-line tip on the opposite end. The T-bar tip is used on teeth with normal alignment and the In-line tip is used for crooked or crowded teeth where the horizontal arm of the T-bar is obstructed by the rotated teeth. The instrument is used to measure the width and length of maxillary anterior teeth. The tip measurements have a predetermined ratio of about 78% (based on the study results on the average width, length ratio of the maxillary anterior…
