Excellence in Bonded Porcelain Restorations

November 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pm


Bonded porcelain restorations present the dentist with a broad spectrum of conservative treatment options in aesthetically demanding situations. They also present the dentist with a new set of restorative challenges, materials options, and techniques. Understanding the indications, limitations, and implementations of the various ceramic restorative materials and resin cements is imperative to assure success with these restorations. In this course all aspects of planning and delivering conservative, bonded indirect restorations will be covered. The presentations will include case selection, treatment planning, tooth preparation, provisional fabrication, restorative material options, luting resins, and bonding techniques. Participation exercises will consist of tooth preparations for anterior porcelain veneers and posterior-bonded onlay restorations.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify appropriate clinical situations for bonded porcelain restorations
  • Treatment plan and design the tooth preparation, and select the material most suitable for each clinical situation.
  • Design and fabricate provisional restorations for various bonded porcelain restoration preparations.
  • Recognize the unique materials, as well as the clinical advantages and disadvantages with CAD/CAM systems
  • Understand and implement proper techniques for surface preparation of both the prepared tooth and porcelain surfaces—and subsequently, predictably bond those restorations.
