Overview / Abstract:

Improved esthetic results achieved with non-metal veneers, onlays and full crowns have increased their use and enhanced patient acceptance and satisfaction. Nevertheless, clinicians often feel that these restorations are more difficult and less predictable than traditional ones. In this course, participants will learn how to properly perform non-metal restorations to make dentistry more predictable, trouble-free and healthier for the patient.

In this workshop, Dr. Ruiz will first demonstrate, on a live patient, an innovative paradigm for preparation and cementation. He will also show a simple and predictable system for performing comprehensive diagnosis, esthetic evaluation and occlusal diagnosis, which is indispensable for predictability, longevity and successful esthetic outcome. In addition, step-by-step techniques and principles for tooth preparation, temporization, and sensitive-free easily bonded cementation will be shown.

During the workshop, participants will perform, in very realistic simulators, tooth preparations specific to supra-gingival dentistry for porcelain veneers and non-metal onlays. Participants will also bond porcelain veneers and onlays using the techniques learned.
