Course Description:

One crown type does not fit all, as new materials are evolving routinely.  Neither does one technique suit every clinical situation.  The array of crown types is daunting, and it is difficult to determine which type is best for each varied clinical situation.  This video describes a rational procedure to select the best material type for each specific patient’s esthetic needs, occlusion, caries activity, and financial ability. Included topics are: differences in current materials; tooth preparation differences; the most adequate digital or conventional impressions; and how to cement without debonding. You and your patients will benefit from this research and clinical technique presentation.
