DVD Only - Zirconia & Lithium Disilicate Restorations – Clinical Comparison & Techniques
Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD
Are you confused about the array of all-ceramic crowns and how to use them? Zirconia and lithium-disilicate (IPS e.max) used in one technique or another now constitute a major portion of the crown market. However, the two restoration types are very different from one another and from the still viable porcelain-fused-to-metal category of crowns and fixed prostheses.
This DVD includes: selection of the appropriate clinical situations for various indirect restoration types and locations for each, use as single units or fixed prostheses, the very different tooth preparations, eliminating postoperative tooth sensitivity, the best cement for each crown type—bonding the restorations or using conventional cements, and adjusting occlusion and contour if necessary. Know how zirconia and IPS e.max clinically compare in order to optimize your all-ceramic restorations!
