Mastering Anterior Layering of Lithium Disilicate Crowns  6.5 CPD

Join Olivier Tric for a work shop and experience his philosophy, methodology and passion, and master his techniques. He believes using lithium disilicate (LiSi Initial) to fabricate crowns is an excellent restorative solution for approaching the beauty of nature. Thus he will be describing in detail framework design to ensure high strength and longevity of the crowns and will demonstrate different layering techniques for different teeth and ages of patients. He will also be sharing his practical photography knowledge for excellent and accurate shade taking and communication.

This will be an intensive day, covering all the key steps in the fabrication process while also encouraging the attendees to ask questions throughout the day to facilitate discussion and exchange. Everyone will have a chance to provide insight and their own experiences, and Olivier will be providing tips and tricks to achieve the quintessence of the optical properties of this innovative and modern material and to solve any situation you may encounter in your own laboratory.

The following steps will be covered in depth:

  • Tips to select the appropriate ingots to enhance aesthetic while maximizing strength
  • Shade taking techniques and intra-oral photography basics
  • Layering techniques to control your color and mimic the subtleties of nature
  • Creating internal effects to create depth and enhance the dynamic of the porcelain
  • Contouring and texturing to match natural dentition, and to create illusion of different shapes and sizes of teeth to add harmony to the smile
  • Glazing and mechanical polishing to achieve perfect luster
  • Etching techniques to encourage a stronger bond and clinical longevity
  • And much more!

Dr Frank Zimmerling

This workshop is in two parts and is aimed at clinicians and technicians who are wanting to know more about how to achieve suction with a mandibular denture using Dr. Abe’s techniques (SEMCD) and a step by step guide on how to change from our analogue world to the digital world.

The first part is demonstrating the clinical steps on a patient incorporating how to achieve suction using Dr. Abe’s “Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Denture”.  You will be able to practice these principles and techniques in your daily practice. You will also gain an understanding from a clinical perspective what can be done digitally, what needs to be done analogue and the shape of things to come.

The second part is demonstrating the technical steps and how we can change from the analogue world to the digital world. You will be guided through the step by step process. You will be able to see and use this digital equipment.

By the end of the day you will have seen and experienced how to achieve suction on a lower denture. Have an understanding of the how the digital world is evolving and what is needed if and when you decided the time is right to integrate digital into your practice. The day will end with an hour to meet the students at the Piano with an optional dinner at Bamboozle
