The growth of digital technology in laboratories and dental practices can help doctors provide better and more efficient treatment. This course will present an overview of digital tools available for the clinician as well as techniques for potentially increasing patient case acceptance, such as clinical photography, CAD/CAM dentistry and useful strategies for increasing comfort for patients with new restorations. Participants who view this presentation will acquire useful clinical and practical information on additional related topics, including:

  • Deciding on the appropriate restorative material for the anterior
  • Replacing failing PFMs with CAD provisionals
  • The step-by-step process for fabricating temporary restorations
  • Treating periapical lesions
  • Bone grafting
  • Impressions with an implant verification jig for full-arch restorations
  • Bonding an all-ceramic crown
  • Preventing postoperative sensitivity in new restorations
  • Crown-lengthening surgery in the posterior
  • Replacing unesthetic composite veneers


Adequate preparation and informed decisions can go a long way to ensuring not only comfortable procedures for patients, but also increasing chances of a long life for their dental restorations. In this presentation, experienced clinicians discuss their methods for keeping patients satisfied and treated well.
