Dental Ceramics - Saturday 19 September 2015

Introduction

The one-day course (6 CPD) developed by Associate Professor Max Guazzato will enable participants to understand material choices, case selection and appropriate use of dental ceramics in clinical and laboratory settings which will lead to predictable longevity of the restoration and tooth. The course is designed for dentists and dental technicians.

Dental Ceramics are valued for their biocompatibility and ability to recreate truly aesthetically pleasing restorations. Today dental ceramics are one of the most commonly used and misused indirect materials to restore teeth and dental implants.

This one-day didactic course will take you in-depth into the structure of ceramics to understand how we should apply its use and why. Focus will be placed on how treatment planning, case selection and understanding of the fundamentals and microstructure of dental ceramics can influence your day-to-day practice.

Clinical case examples will be used to explain the influence of common chairside and laboratory adjustments such as grinding, sand blasting, polishing and furnace settings have on the final outcome.

Course topics
  • History of dental ceramics
  • Composition and microstructure of commonly used dental ceramics including Feldspathic porcelain, Leucite glass ceramics- IPS Empress, Lithium disilicates- e.max and Zirconia
  • In-surgery and In-laboratory surface treatment of dental ceramics
