Designed for technicians of all experience levels, this two-day hands-on course reviews the basics, such as waxing, sprueing, investing, burnout, pressing, and divesting. It then moves into ingot theory, selecting the appropriate ingot, characteristics of each ingot and their uses, and how to layer and treat each ingot. This course also covers several techniques, including appropriate surface contouring, stain and glazing, as well as multiple layering techniques specifically designed to gain the maximum esthetic outcome for the selected ingot. Participants will gain hands-on experience for every type of ingot from High Opacity to High Translucency.
Techniques covered include:
· Full-contour build-up/posterior coping
· Full-contour build-up/ anterior coping
· Anterior facial layering
· Posterior Stain & Glaze
