Course Outline

Morning Session

This course covers two topics in prosthodontic dentistry, porcelain veneers and digital dentistry. Porcelain veneers provide patients with immediate improvements to the colour, shape, and alignment of teeth. For best results, however, the clinician must select cases carefully and follow specific clinical protocols. This course covers comprehensive aesthetic analysis, treatment planning, and a step-by-step approach to tooth preparation, impression temporization, material selection, and cementation.

Digital technology is now offering dental professionals the possibility of following a completely digital workflow, from diagnostic treatment planning to prosthesis fabrication. This part of the course includes a practical overview of the digital technology used in diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical treatment planning, guided implant surgery, and prosthodontics .

Afternoon Session

The evolution of digital technology has had a dramatic impact on all disciplines of dentistry, particularly in the fields of prosthodontics and surgery, providing dental professionals with the possibility of following a completely digital workflow, from diagnostic treatment planning to prosthesis fabrication. Clinical data acquisition using intra-oral scanners has bridged the digital gap between the clinical practice and the dental laboratory. While these latest digital tools offer new and different workflows compared to conventional techniques, it is imperative that clinical efficiency and restoration accuracy not be compromised. A practical and pragmatic overview of the digital tools and technologies used in a modern prosthodontic practice will be provided, and a comprehensive overview of digital technology used in diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical treatment planning, guided implant surgery, and prosthodontics will be covered. The use of intra-oral scanners and the workflow required for simple reconstructions to comprehensive full-arch rehabilitations in both conventional and implant-based applications will be presented. Some of the challenges, limitations, and inefficiencies encountered utilizing new technologies will be described.

Course Objectives

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

  • Outline aesthetic analysis and case selection
  • Review appropriate treatment planning principles for porcelain veneers
  • Summarize indications and contraindications for porcelain veneers
  • Follow a comprehensive step-by-step clinical protocol for veneer fabrication, including tooth preparation, impression temporization, material selection, and cementation
  • Demonstrate the use of digital technology in implant surgery and prosthodontics
  • Demonstrate the use of intra-oral scanners in conventional crown, bridgework, and implant dentistry
  • Understand the accuracy, benefits, and limitations of intra-oral scanners
  • Follow the digital workflow required in comprehensive fixed reconstructions
Lunch will be provided.
