This is a comprehensive esthetic A to Z course covering everything about today’s bondable ceramic materials. The course will cover esthetic analysis, smile design, material selection, and all the clinical steps to complete simple and comprehensive esthetic cases. The format will be lectures, demonstrations, hands-on workshops and a live patient observation experience.
The course faculty will perform a live demonstration of a patient from smile design all the way through to final cementation. Participants will observe over the shoulder (or via live video feed) and interact during these sessions.
- Smile design concepts
- Indications and contra-indications for etched ceramic restorations
- Material selection (what to use, when and where)
- Shade analysis
- Shade communication photography
- BFEP’s (Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes) i.e. bonded mock-ups
- Step-by-step preparation techniques
- Techniques for prototypes (temporaries)
- Step-by-step adhesive cementation
- Occlusal considerations
Participants will compete all the steps demonstrated in the “over the shoulder” live patient demo and the techniques covered in the lectures using casts and a specially designed typodont. The course will guide participants through the specifics of smile design, to the placement of BFEP’s using composite, and all of the steps from preparation to final cementation. During the course, veneers will be fabricated by a UCLA Center for Esthetic Dentistry master ceramist and they will be bonded the last day of the course. Each lecture will be followed by an instructor demonstration and a hands-on exercise of each of the steps covered in the over the shoulder and lecture components.
The hands-on sessions will follow lectures and teach the participants the clinical steps for implementing BFEP’s (bonded functional esthetic prototypes) prior to ECR (veneer) preparation to “trial” the smile. Then the step-by-step process of different types of ECR preparations based on the esthetically driven desired outcome will be demonstrated and completed by the participants.
- BFEP’S (bonded diagnostic mock-up using composite)
- Preparations for ECR’s bonded porcelain with a specific emphasis on how to control tooth reduction
- Preparations to close diastema’s
- Preparations based on final shade determinates
- Final prototypes
- Adhesive cementation
