Your Prep is Done: Now What?


With so much instruction dedicated to modern crown & bridge principals, the latest in ceramics, treatment planning and cementation vs. bonding, there are some critical components to this workflow that are often ignored in CE.

This CE webinar will do a deep dive into two very important clinical steps critical to successful crown & bridge delivery, impression making and provisionalization. Learn about the latest advances in PVS materials and how to develop a bulletproof protocol for predictable impression capture. The latest in provisional materials and delivery techniques will also be covered with many clinical pearls aimed to make daily practice more predictable and enjoyable.

Making a Great First Impression Every Single Time


When a clinician struggles with the laboratory or the fit of a final restoration, the answer can often be found at the prep appointment. The integrity of our final restoration is often related to the quality of the impression that we make at the preparation appointment.

This CE webinar will provide you with some clinical tips that will help you insure that you have quality that is consistent and predictable. Learning the value of properly designed preparations, retraction tech-niques that aid in predictable impression techniques and much more.
