Maximizing Anterior Esthetics Virtual Workshop
Participants will create esthetic restorations with an examination of color theory and its practical application in shading and characterization of IPS e.max® CAD restorations produced in a Chairside CAD/CAM System. Finishing techniques in the “blue state” will be covered as well as proper burs and tools to achieve natural looking restorations. Demonstration of efficient techniques for anterior restorations will allow the dentist and staff to fully utilize the potential of IPS e.max® CAD in creating maximum esthetics for a variety of clinical situations.
