More than ever, dentists are looking for predictable and efficient methods to deliver exceptional restorations. Our restoration checklist includes: sealed margins, functional occlusion, accurate inter-proximal contacts, while offering beautiful esthetics. However, central to every restoration is the bur that is selected to perform a specific role during the procedure. Whether removing decay, finishing a composite, establishing a margin, or adjusting a pristine ceramic surface, dental burs answer to a broad scope of restorative procedures. This CE webinar will discuss proper bur selection from start to finish for everyday clinical dentistry.

Expiration Date: 1/31/27
CE Credits: 1 CEU (Self-Study)
View Full Description »
Advancements in technology and materials have shifted the field of dentistry. As a result, providers opt to rely more on chemical adhesion over mechanical retention with both their direct and indirect restorations. This paradigm shift of preparation design to a more conservative approach is dependent on an equal shift in our bonding protocols. The road to reliability in adhesive dentistry is paved through consistency and reliance on adhering to science. Developing systems and protocols and sticking to them ensures long term stability with cosmetic restorations. Which in turn results in happy patients with reliable outcomes. But how does one develop the proper systems and protocols? In this CE webinar, providers will learn how to simplify yet optimize their isolation techniques and bonding protocols to achieve more predictable long-term success with both their direct and indirect restorative outcomes.
