Speakers and Topics:
Increasing bond strength on zirconia and dental material with cold plasma
Zirconia is among the main materials used for dental applications. One common application is to bond it with cement as adhesive. This lecture investigates the influence of different surface treatments on zirconia surface energy, roughness and bond strength. We will discuss, the effect of sandblasting and cold atmospheric plasma on the surface roughness and shear bonding strength and material and methods that can be used to increase bond strength.
Skillful combination of press and layering technique with e.max
Press technology is considered an efficient and reliable method to manufacture all ceramic restorations. The IPS e.max Press (Ivoclar Vivadent) all-ceramic system enables highly esthetic restorations that functionally and esthetically integrate so well that they are nearly indistinguishable from the natural dentition.
3D Printing in the laboratory
Join Adrienne Slevin, Dental Technician and clinical trainer of 18 years, in a session about the NextDent 5100 features and how it takes the guesswork out of 3D printing. In this session, you will learn how 3D printing works and why the ND5100 is unique in the dental field for any type or size office and lab. Adrienne will also explain how 3D printing can be optimized from scanning through cad software, for an accurate and reliable result.
