How to Repair and Maintain Fixed Restorations

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

A missing aspect of most dental education experiences is what to do when a fixed restoration fails, but it appears that it can still serve if repaired adequately.  Gordon answers how and when you can salvage restorations to extend their service life.  This valuable DVD includes: salvaging a fixed prosthesis loose on one end, repairing a carious crown margin in an area of esthetic need, esthetically repairing an endodontic access hole in a tooth-colored crown, repairing a fractured ceramic crown or bridge without redoing it, and other repair techniques.  Patients really appreciate your suggestion and ability to salvage fixed restorations that appear to be salvageable. Such concern on your part is a genuine practice and trust builder.
