Common Pitfalls of Crown Prep

2 CEU, Core • $80

Understanding the importance of the relationship between the dentist and the lab – that’s the key to the perfect crown. But there is so much more!
This course will explore what works…and what doesn’t…when preparing a crown for your patient. What are the everyday pitfalls? How can they be avoided? Explore aspects of the “perfect prep,” potential pitfalls and how to deliver the best possible results for maximum patient satisfaction. Bring your assistants and key staff members to this program – the entire team will learn something. And bring your questions – anything you want to know from the lab’s point of view.

Course Objectives:

  • Crown prep designs for superior outcomes
  • Lab challenges of digital scanning
  • New materials and comparisons
