One of the most exciting advances in the category of oxide ceramics is IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime. Utilizing a manufacturing concept known as "Gradient Technology" this unique material is so much more than just another zirconia. It is the first ever to offer the high strength of traditional framework zirconia, along with the impressive translucency and esthetics of the latest generation high translucent materials. No longer do we need to compromise strength and durability required for long span restorations in order to achieve the natural beauty our patients demand.
In this 1-1/2 day course, participants will fabricate a long span bridge utilizing micro-layering with IPS e.max Ceram in the esthetic zone and a monolithic approach to maximize strength in the posterior segment. The Ivocolor universal shading system will be used to characterize and glaze both the layered and non-layered bridge segments.
