Direct and Indirect dentistry both require the use of burs to accomplish the restorative end result. Decay removal, tooth reduction, contouring, finishing and polishing all use different burs and can balloon a practice’s inventory if not properly managed. Additionally, utilizing bur that are past their prime can reduce productivity and cause damaging stress to dental turbines, leading to expensive handpiece repair. This CE webinar will review the most common direct and indirect clinical procedures and the burs that are optimum for each procedure. Strategies for inventory control and reduction will be discussed.

In this webinar we will share the unique advantages that pressable ceramics offer both the laboratory and surgery. The latest generation of ceramics offer a time and cost effective route to producing natural, life like restorations due to their unique workability, and followability which allows us to press much thinner structures and get more units per press while maintaining high strength structures with superior light transmission properties. This allows us to create a colour stable pressed structures which in many cases require minimal ceramic layering in turn allowing the technicians and surgeons to focus on the ever increasing patient demands for strong and stable restorations that look like their natural teeth.
