Course description

Restorative Update: Materials and Clinical Techniques for Indirect Restorations

Saturday, Nov. 9, 2024
Presented by Richard G. Stevenson III, DDS, FAGD, FACD, ABOD

We have several different indirect material options to restore teeth today; however, there exists a tremendous lack of consistency in the fundamentals of preparation design, nomenclature, rotary instrumentation, and delivery techniques, including occlusal adjustment to encourage restoration longevity. Textbooks and much of the literature have not been able to keep up with the current materials and the subsequent preparation alterations required. It is certainly time for our profession to embrace the proper terminology, burs, features and dimensions indicated to create preparations that will support the long-term survival of our restorations. This course will attempt to clarify what we know, what we think we know, and what we need to know—about materials and preparation designs in the current era, and how to deliver indirect restorations which have the best chance of survival.

Learning objectives

  • Identify what finish line is created by each bur design when preparing indirect restorations
  • Compare the differences in preparation deigns for the currently available indirect materials
  • Differentiate the indications for various indirect ceramic preparation designs based on the structural elements of the remaining tooth and the esthetic demands of the case
  • Implement the optimal sequence of steps required to deliver long lasting, indirect bonded ceramics
