Lecture and Hands-on Workshop
Sydney 23 November 2016
ADA CPD | 71-73 Lithgow Street St Leonards NSW
Lecture: 1.5 CPD Hours
Full Day: 5.5 CPD Hours
The use of aesthetic crowns is a relatively new technology available to pediatric dentistry for the restoration and rehabilitation of the primary dentition. This is a hands-on workshop which covers case studies, and the principals and techniques for sizing, preparation, fitting and cementation of NuSmile Signature (pre-veneered) and NuSmile ZR (zirconia) crowns. Clinical recommendations including case selection will be reviewed as well as practical tips to overcome common problems will be outlined. Controversial issues around cementation, wear and durability will be discussed as well as the emerging evidence.
At the completion of this workshop, the clinician will understand and demonstrate competence in all phases of case selection, tooth preparation, proper fitting and cementation of both pre-veneered and zirconia ceramic anterior and posterior primary crowns. Clinicians will be in a better position to decide which type of aesthetic restoration is best suited to their individual patient’s needs and should feel confident to offer parents and children a new aesthetic option for full coverage restorations for anterior or posterior teeth.

NuSmile ZR Anterior and Posterior paediatric crowns represent the perfect balance between art and science. Made from high-grade monolithic zirconia ceramic, NuSmile ZR looks like the real thing and is 9 times stronger than natural teeth. Easy to place with tapered margins for optimal gingival fit and health, NuSmile ZR offers superior durability to last until the tooth exfoliates without needing ongoing repairs. We have optimized the translucency of our zirconia ceramic for natural aesthetics and to prevent the problem of dark show through of pulpally treated teeth – satisfying the most demanding clinicians and parents. NuSmile ZR Posterior crowns include 1st and 2nd primary molars with narrow 1st primary molars also available.
Anterior and Posterior Crowns provide proven durable restoration for primary teeth affected by early childhood caries. Tried and true, NuSmile Signature gives a child a healthy, natural smile and are highly rated by parents and dentists in numerous studies. Our crowns are less technique sensitive than composite strip crowns and are the most widely used crown by a 2 to 1 margin with more than three million restorations over the past 20 years. In university studies, NuSmile Signature posterior crowns had a wear comparable to traditional stainless steel crowns and far exceeded competitive pre-veneered aesthetic crowns.
