In the last 40 years, dentistry has benefited from many advances in adhesives, composites, and ceramics that have allowed the profession to segue from a mechanical restorative goal to a biologic one. These materials provide clinicians with the ability to restore teeth in a minimally invasive manner and close to their original biomechanical function. Unfortunately, these materials are not often used to their full potential and are employed with only slight variations to more invasive traditional preparation designs. Why choose to do Non-Retentive Partial Coverage Ceramics? These restorations conserve more tooth structure, work in harmony with the natural biomechanics of the tooth, help extend the restorative life cycle of the tooth, and maximize the fracture resistance of ceramic materials. In this course Dr. Schiffenhaus will review advanced adhesive techniques, material science, biomechanics, diagnosis, & preparation design related to BAARD Partial Coverage Ceramics: Non-Retentive Overlays & Onlays
