Provisionalization of Indirect Restorations

Provisionalization of Indirect Restorations

The Importance of Provisionalization in Cosmetic Dentistry

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the provisionalization of indirect restorations plays a crucial role. In this webinar, we will delve into the significance of creating temporary restorations and their impact on the final outcome of a smile makeover.

Previous Presentations and Topics Covered

This webinar is a continuation of our series on cosmetic dentistry. In the previous sessions, we focused on important aspects such as smile design and adhesive dentistry. These presentations provided insight into the key elements necessary for achieving beautiful and long-lasting results in cosmetic dental procedures.

Presentation by Dr. Ed McLaren

Renowned cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ed McLaren from UCLA, will be presenting on materials used for posterior restorations. His expertise and knowledge in the field make him the perfect resource to guide us through the selection and application of these materials.

Objectives of the Webinar

Our webinar aims to accomplish two key objectives: effective lab communication and providing patients with a preview of their final restoration. We understand the importance of clear communication between the dental lab and the dental practice to ensure accurate and aesthetically pleasing results. Additionally, we believe that allowing patients to see a simulation of their new smile helps build confidence and improves satisfaction with the final outcome.

Veneer Prototype Techniques

In this webinar, we will explore five different veneer prototype techniques. These techniques not only aid in the visualization of potential results but also assist the dental team in fine-tuning the design and achieving the desired aesthetics. This hands-on approach offers a valuable opportunity to make adjustments before the permanent restorations are fabricated.

Before and After Case: Jennifer’s Two Front Teeth

We are excited to showcase a before and after case involving the restoration of Jennifer’s two front teeth. This real-life example will allow participants to witness the transformative power of cosmetic dentistry and how provisional restorations contribute to the overall success of the treatment.
