Program SummaryTooth preparation is the single most important aspect of restorative dentistry because it establishes the foundation for all our restorations. The objective of the course is to provide the clinician with a predictable and systematic approach that would assure a successful treatment in various situations. The theoretical component will review basic principles, highlight new concepts as well delineate current clinically-relevant concepts of tooth preparation. A series of clinical cases will be presented and discussed along with some common problems and their solutions. Finally, a variety of “tips and tricks” and technical refinements will be presented to the practitioner.Topics covered in didactic session● Indications of extra-coronal coverage● Comprehensive sequence for restorative treatments● Basic concepts of tooth preparation● Current concepts of tooth preparation● Margin design and its implication on gingival health and esthetics● Case presentation and discussionHands-on SessionThe hands-on portion will provide an overview of the various steps of tooth preparation for both anterior and posterior restorations.

The participants will have the opportunity to learn how to recognize and correct these errors by applying the management strategies discussed in the theoretical part of the course.Course Objectives● Review basic concepts of tooth preparation for extra-coronal coverage● Introduce current concepts and discuss their clinical implications● Review the impact of crown design on soft tissue healing and maturation● Discuss soft tissue management around crown abutments● Present common complications and discuss their management strategies
