Choosing your preparation technique and restorative material wisely
For predictable long-term results in fixed prosthetics, every step should be performed meticulously. Tooth preparation plays one of the most important roles in the clinical workflow. Moreover, this step considerably depends on the restorative material selected. Stronger materials, for instance, require less invasive preparation. Consequently, we have to ask ourselves the following questions. What is the minimum thickness for a large variety of indirect materials? How does the translucency level of ceramics influence the preparation depth? What is the interplay between the preparation technique used and the material selected?
In this webinar, you will learn more about the following themes:
- Preparation techniques for indirect restorations
- Temporization problems and solutions
- Interplay of the preparation and the selected material
