All Ceramic Restorations in 2010:Advancing from Good to Excellent
After two-and-a-half decades of extensive scientific studies, and long-term clinical
observations, the empirical features of bonded ceramic restorations and porcelain veneers have been replaced by well researched scientific findings.

New technologies and products have been developed based on these findings that enable us to provide our patients with more aesthetically pleasing and functionally lasting restorations. Revisiting the basic principles of etched porcelain bonded restorations in light of new scientific
information, new products and recent technological advances allow us to achieve what was unthinkable a decade ago.

This seminar is designed to provide participants with up-to-date comprehensive information of ceramic bonded restorations. Emphasis will be placed not only on achieving better aesthetic and function, but also on reducing undesirable failures repor ted in the literature.
