A special feature of this course is that reference images will be used to create imitations of the natural dentition. During the entire course, continuous reference will be made to metal-ceramic restorations to understand the difference in the processing technique and become aware of the advantages of IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max Ceram.
IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max Ceram are contrasted with metal-ceramics. You will learn to perfectly understand and implement the advantages and related processing procedures and to differentiate between the different techniques. You will most certainly benefit from the tips and tricks provided by an outstanding dental professional.
Using reference images and a special layering technique to create perfect imitations
Achieving outstanding esthetics by verifying the basic shade, degree of saturation and brightness value
Learning an efficient method for studying tooth shapes, presented in a didactically effective manner
Dental technicians experienced in ceramics
Gérald Ubassy says:
"One characteristic of the dental technology profession is that considerable skill and the right tips and tricks are required to achieve successful results. I personally find it very difficult to describe artistry. As it is my desire to communicate and share the knowledge that I have acquired, I would like to demonstrate how I rationalize working steps and implement them in daily practice. Applied logic helps us to select the right shape and shade and adjust the all-ceramic objects we fabricate accordingly. In this way, the best possible integration of the restoration into the natural oral environment of our patients is obtained."
