As clinicians we strive to meet the dental needs of our patients in regards to aesthetic restorations.

Do you find that at times you are held at the mercy, or unexpected surprise of what comes back from the lab?

When the patient is unsatisfied with the color, shape, “feel”, or worse the patient returns with a chipped or fractured restoration do you find yourself asking “what happened?”


This program is a continuation of Part 1 and will address how to create team work with your lab such that it becomes a “force multiplier” in practice building. This program will answer common questions such as: What porcelain materials should I use for this aesthetic case and why? What materials are available when dealing with restoring the posterior occlusion in smile rehabilitation patients?What aesthetic clinical techniques are best used for me to convey all the information to my lab? What cements are available and which ones are best for my case?... and much more!
