Beautiful Crown Preps & Impressions Made Easy

April 25, 2019
1:00 pm โ€“ 4:00 pm
  • Michael C. DiTolla, D.D.S., FAGD

Tooth preparation with adequate reduction in the proper areas has more to do with producing esthetic anterior restorations than selecting the correct shade. Techniques will be presented to ensure that dentists give their laboratory technicians the best chance to fabricate a beautiful restoration.

Learning Objectives:
1) Learn to select specific burs based on the chosen restorative material to ensure adequate reduction where needed.
2) Understand how under-reduction of tooth preparations leads to anterior restorations that are clearly fake.
3) Learn to use a logical, scientific shade guide to help ensure highly acceptable esthetic results.

Course Number: T1907

Recommended for

  • Dental Assistants
