Paradigm shifts resulting from biomimetic restorative dentistry and bio-emulation.
How can science, common sense and experience in adhesive dentistry generate revolutionary concepts to save tooth structure and teeth? This presentation will describe innovative techniques (immediate dentin sealing, deep margin elevation, additive luting and others) but also explore the future of CAD/CAM dentistry and "biologic restorations".
Understand the driving force behind biomimetic restorative dentistry
Learn about new clinical techniques to improve tissue conservation and bonding
Learn how CAD/CAM technique can be used “biomimetically”

“eLABor_aid®” - A new dawn in shade matching!
Consistent shade matching of indirect restorations with natural dentition remains to be a formidable challenge, even for the most experienced of experts. Numerous factors which take adverse effect on the clinical outcome have long been identified. They include operator dependency (subjective shade selection and evaluation), insufficient shade guide coverage of the range of natural tooth shades as well as considerable inconsistencies among manufacturers shading regimes. The eLABor_aid® System was developed to combat these limitations by enabling objective shade communication using cross polarized dental photography in conjunction with a new and innovative digital work flow that will allow the dental ceramist to formulate an individual shade recipe and to measure its accuracy with the help of a digital try-in of the build-up prior to firing. Learn about the future of shade management: capture, calibrate & create!
1. Traditional shade communication using visual assessment, what are the pros and cons?
2. Understanding metamerism and its origins.
3. Using a digital single lens camera (DSLR) for objective shade quantification and communication without the use of shade guides.
4. Formulating custom shade recipes specifically for your patient.
5. Testing accuracy with the digital try-in
6. Tips & Tricks and new innovations

Step by step procedure of the delivery of laminate veneers.
Anterior Ceramic Restorations
Laminate Veneers in general have a good long-term follow-up, however sometimes they fail due to different reasons. In this lecture we will cover the step by step procedure of the delivery of laminate veneers. We will focus on some common failures and give some insights in our studies performed. Some of the aspects will be; preparation; IDS; what to do with existing restorations; luting/ conditioning of tooth and ceramic.
Posterior Ceramic Restorations.
In this lecture we will cover posterior ceramic restorations. Due to the fact that we can lute ceramic to tooth material we can be less invasive. Partial ceramic in the posterior regions require some other challenges. In this lecture we will cover some of the aspects important to deliver partial posterior ceramic restorations like; preparation, cusp coverage or not; endocrowns; luting.
Both lectures will contain a clinical approach step by step procedure but fully supported by scientific background.

Enter the Cube; Craniofacial Spatial Arrangement Redefined via the BaseLine.
The diagnostic template serves as the point of origin for any facially generated treatment plan in the modern restorative practice. Thus an accurate and precise maxillo-mandibular three dimensional spatial registration will provide the dental team with a flawless workflow, maximizing efficiency and effectiveness, when working in either the conventional (manual) or contemporary (digital) modes.
The position of the occlusal plane in the patient and the articulator is an essential link for achieving the functional and esthetic goals of the anticipated treatment. Patient specific anatomic craniofacial landmarks within the frontal, transverse and sagittal planes will be thouroughly explored and analyzed.
Participants will learn how to mitigate transfer errors and increase accuracy via specific photographic and radiographic protocols in addition to utilising a customised registration, aiding both clinicians and technicians to systematically manage the proper spatial orientation of the maxillary cast
