Luting adhesively indirect restorations: the no-finishing concept

Over the past 30 years, the development of adhesive techniques has thus reduced the biological cost of bonded indirect restorations (in/onlays and veneers). Regarding these restorations, protocols are well standardized, and the literature demonstrates similar or even better success rates than conventional cemented restorations over 20Y follow up.

However, the procedures for bonding to dental tissue are still more demanding than those for conventional cemented prostheses. One of the keys to the durability of indirect adhesive restorations is their ability to prevent bacterial plaque from adhering to their surface. This hands-on will thus describe a clinical protocol for obtaining the smoothest possible prosthetic margins, without resorting to conventional finishing and polishing techniques, which are tedious and time-consuming.

Emulation of nature with direct restorative materials

The Bio-Emulation approach as written in structural analysis and visual synthesis defined the new bases to consider for replication of natural tooth structures with composite resin. The penta_laminar concept represents the ultimate implementation of this philosophy: analysing different ageing stages to build a dynamic shade concept that adapts to nature. By analysing the key factors of natural structure’s ageing process and applying this knowledge to the material selection, it is possible to simplify techniques to make them approachable in all situations. From a bi-laminar technique to the penta_laminar technique we can learn to adapt our work in order to optimise the clinical outcome achieving cost-effective treatments to cover our patients needs and expectations.

Unicorn Crown™ – A short story about decisions

With his unique perspective on all essential facets of ceramic art and technology, Thomas will show how he approaches a highly aesthetic outcome on an anterior case, using Creation ́s Zi-CT ceramic system, creating his so called “Unicorn Crown™” including all possible natural effects.

The participants will learn how to achieve a correct shade selection, how to take pictures of the cases before and how to create highly aestheticemotional after pictures with minimal effort. Thomas will talk about things, dental technicians have to be aware of, things which are important and things that are worthless. His approach will be, to share his knowledge that worked out nicely and things that didn’t – in other words, real life! A short condensed hands on course by a dental technician for dental technicians.

Injectable Veneer with IVENEER Matrix System

This workshop is about the ‘Injectable Veneer Technique’ that enables the clinician to generate single-visit composite veneers in a very simple. The workshop consists of a lecture and an hands-on part which will cover the clinical opportunities and limitations of this novel technique. The composite material selection, Iveneer matrix selection, adaptation, injection, and emulation of natural dental morphology will be mentioned in details. Also, the possible reasons for failure will be discussed through several clinical cases. In the hands-on part, a monochromatic direct veneer restoration of a central insicor will be performed by using the Iveneer Matrix and Gaenial Universal Injectable composites.

Dental Photography: from the basics to artistry

In dentistry, photography has for long been considered as time-consuming, expensive and hard to implement in daily practices. On top of that, it’s common that fellow dentists complain about difficulties to get nice shots. In reality, using a camera to document cases is actually pretty simple and straightforward. It’s even possible to get to artistic pictures easily. But, the main advantage about documentation is treatment planning and communication with your patient, lab and team. It’s essential when we’re talking about comprehensive treatment and biomimetic dentistry.

Through this dedicated workshop, you’ll get to learn all the fundamentals about dental photography and understand how to properly use your equipment, as well as using standardized protocols for case documentation. Then, we’ll show you how to perform artistic shots. Get ready to level up your game!

Positional Veracity of the Maxillary Plane According to the BaseLine

The position of the occlusal plane in the patient and the articulator is an essential link for achieving the functional and aesthetic goals of the anticipated treatment plan. Patient specific anatomic cranio-facial landmarks within the frontal, transverse and sagittal planes will be thoroughly explored and analysed.

Participants will learn how to mitigate transfer errors and increase accuracy via specific BaseLine driven photographic protocols in addition to utilising the OneBite Evolution in an analogue or digital workflow, aiding both clinicians and technicians to systematically manage the proper spatial orientation of the maxillary cast.

Full Digital Patient Journey: Create, Emulate and Communicate using Smile Creator

The goal of this workshop is to guide dental professionals through the entire Smile Creator process. Participants will go in-depth on how to use this platform to change patient care from the first consultation to the end result.

An overview of the digital patient experience will be given at the start of the workshop with focus on how Smile Creator fits into each step of the planning and implementation of dental treatment. Participants will have the ability to produce intricate digital representations of dental patients’ anatomy, facilitating accurate planning and result simulation.

It includes simulating after the creation phase giving a perspective of post-treatment outcomes. These simulations are intended to improve communication between the patient and the clinician.

By the end of the workshop ends participants will have all the information to properly incorporate this technology into their practice and raise the bar for patient care via digital innovation.
