DRILLING DOWN: BEST PRACTICES FOR MOVING FROM BASIC TO SUPERIOR COMPOSITES & CROWNS
Bioactive, Universal, Hybrid, Nano-technology, Bulk-fill and Monolithic are all terms being thrown out to describe the latest direct restorative materials. But what do they mean, do they really work and how do
they simplify and improve treatment? Understand the scientific as well as clinical advances of these new materials beyond all the hype.
With the dramatic shift away from metal supported to all-ceramic crowns, confusion exists in selecting the ideal ceramic to use. Should you use monolithic or layered, pressable or milled, cementable or
bonded? Many factors need to be considered including strength, translucency, esthetic expectations and ease of cementation. Patient communication is vital. Learn how to select the best crown for each
individual situation and perform proper cementation/bonding protocols.
