Course Information

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.
