This class is designed for the serious CEREC™ user with the desire to take aesthetic dentistry to a new level. Obtaining results that will rival nature begins in the planning phase. Being well prepared for the aesthetic clinical objectives will simplify the chairside experience. The CEREC™ application to aesthetic dentistry should be seamless when operating in a systematic format.
Mastering anterior CEREC™ aesthetics is about understanding and implementing a systematic sequence that will be dependable with each aesthetic case. The fundamental aesthetic principles taught in this class are a reflection of Dr. Klim's 30 plus years of clinical experience and years of post-graduate teaching in aesthetic dentistry.
Dr. Klim's classes are not only unique because of his mastery of CAD/CAM aesthetic dentistry. They are customized to your learning style, and they target the primary understanding you need to raise your clinical aesthetic skills.
Class Learning Objectives for Primescan & Omnicam:
With the new layered blocks, we can customize incisal characteristics without full cutbacks. This will retain optimal strength and function for the incisal edge. Learn the two primary approaches Dr. Klim uses to customize the incisal edge.
Adhesive Process and Bonding Resin Effects
Proper techniques for humidity and soft tissue control will assure a successful adhesive process. Learn Dr. Klim's systematic final resin color effects and adhesive protocol.
Fundamental Principles of Anterior Aesthetic Dentistry
Understanding and sequencing your steps before the clinical experience will significantly simplify the CAD/CAM optical capture, virtual design, and finishing of the milled restoration(s).
Aesthetic CAD/CAM Preparation Architecture and Optical Impression
Desired clinical outcomes, pretreatment conditions, and CEREC optical scan conditions will impact the preparation architecture. You will learn the preparation principles and optical scan techniques that will yield excellent virtual models.
Simplify Virtual Design and Maximize Outcome
The secret to simplifying virtual design is the pretreatment plan and preparation design. Then the optical capture and design process will become second nature. With a systematic approach, learn how this part of the process should be the easiest part.
Aesthetic Ceramic Selection
My block selection is primarily determined by desired brilliance and transparency for the demands of the case. Learn the Klim "depth-layering-influence" system for ceramic selection.
Texturing, Glazing, and Superficial Gloss Finish ( "Fingerprinting" )
The artistic caveat to fooling the eye starts with a tooth profile. Also, customizing and texturing the reflective and deflective surfaces creates individuality and uniqueness for each case. Learn the systematic approach to "fingerprint" the case with confidence.
