Synopsis

As dentists we must not rely only on the materials but on our own ability to treatment plan and diagnose based on a multi-factorial situation. We must be careful in our preparation, design, and be meticulous in our bonding techniques. Failures in dentistry are frequently blamed on materials. In reality: “user error” is often the culprit. In this program, Dr. Kugel will highlight the latest information and evidence on a variety of esthetic dentistry related topics including adhesive bonding, direct composites, bioactive materials, the latest in tooth whitening, digital dentistry and 3D printing. Have you considered printing your own PPE? This course will help you better understand the value of 3D printing in an everyday dental practice. This course will provide relevant clinical information to assist dentists in their everyday practice.

Objectives

  • Learn the limitations of materials and which are the best options for different clinical situations.
  • Understand the importance of understanding occlusion as it relates to their choice of materials.
  • Review the evidence as it related to new bonding systems and bioactive materials.
  • Understand 3D printing as it relates to dentistry, its advantages and limitations.
