Note: This seminar is from a past LAB DAY show

In part one of this two-part course, Dirk Sommerfeld, MDT, shows the proper way to fabricate an esthetic anterior waxup using innovative products and techniques to increase waxing and porcelain production and consistency. He also covers how to get the proper results when pressing and includes important tips on preps for both the dentist and lab. In part two, Steve Nash, MDT, takes you from the anatomical waxup to beautiful press-over-metal restorations using GC Initial™ IQ Press over Metal Ceramics, which offers consistency, fewer remakes and the ability to meet demanding esthetic requirements. He also shares insights and techniques for the entire press-over-metal process; demonstrates the application of GC Initial IQ Lustre Pastes for "painting on" lifelike incisal effects and translucency; and explains how to use Initial Low Fusing Porcelains.
