Modern ceramics and advanced adhesive techniques allow us to restore teeth similar to their natural biomechanical function. Unfortunately, the fundamentals of ceramics and bonding are still not widely understood. The leading cause of failure for posterior ceramics is fracture. While most doctors understand that fractures are the result of poor preparation design, few understand that poor bonding can reduce the fracture resistance of a ceramic restoration. In this CE webinar we will review preparation fundamentals and designs that maximize ceramic fracture resistance. Additionally, adhesive techniques such as IDS & Resin Coating can increase bond strengths up to 400% and lead to long term retention of minimally invasive, ceramic restorations. These techniques will also minimize post-operative sensitivity and root canals. Clinical cases will be re-viewed to illustrate these preparation & restorative techniques.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the participant will
• Learn the leading cause of ceramic failures and how to prevent them
• Learn preparation designs to minimize stress on ceramic and maximize bond strengths
• Learn fundamentals and advantages of IDS with Resin Coating to maximize ceramic longevity   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
