Increase Productivity and Esthetic Outcomes with Milled Restorations
Mark Kleive, DDS
We will review the latest product developments in the CAD/CAM ceramic and resin-ceramic categories and how they can impact productivity and esthetic outcomes in the general practice. Attendees will learn about the physical properties of new ceramic and nano-ceramic materials, cementation protocols, and the various indications for use with patients. Additionally, there will be a focus on chairside characterization to customize restorations directly in the mouth.

Learning Objectives:
• Discuss the different physical properties amongst ceramic and resin-ceramic blocks
• Review the intraoral indications for ceramic and nano-ceramic materials
• Review how to simply characterize CAD/CAM restorations
• Discuss the tips and tricks that create the most efficient workflow and optimal esthetic result

Injection Molding Technique Using Composite
Tal Wilkins IV, DDS
A smile makeover is a very complex and involved treatment which incorporates an in-depth knowledge of smile design, proper occlusion, and the ability to work with a team, including the dental laboratory technician. While porcelain crowns or veneers are the typical mainstay of this type of treatment, composite veneers offer a less costly option. Composite can also be used as an interim restorative material while phasing treatment and allowing the patient to proceed through treatment at their own pace. With the advent of new composite filler technology, it is now possible to utilize injectable composites, which have wear properties similar to traditional composites. These new injectable composites, combined with clear PVS matrices, can be used to quickly and accurately duplicate the wax up in the patient’s mouth. This new approach significantly lessens the learning curve for new practitioners performing full mouth rehabilitation or smile makeovers.

Learning Objectives:
• Determine the materials used in the injection molding technique
• Discuss a step-by-step method of injection molding
• Review uses for the injection molding technique

12:30 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. ET
