Anticipated Release: June 2024
Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD & Valinda Johnston, BS, CDA
Does one type of tooth preparation fit every clinical situation? No! Different materials and other clinical issues such as bruxing, high caries activity, or difficult esthetic situations also affect your tooth preparation choices to ensure longevity and esthetic success. Gordon demonstrates, step-by-step, the necessary procedures for the various indirect restorations available today — from infrequently used gold alloy and PFM to the popular lithium disilicate and the various strengths of zirconia. See how to prep teeth with the least trauma, when to build up teeth, where to place margins, which are the best handpieces, and how to customize preps for each patient’s individual needs. Offer your patients the best techniques that will help ensure optimal longevity of their restorations and make your tooth preps simple and fast!
