Designed to provide training in the fabrication of IPS e.max Press implant abutments and restorations, the focus of this one-and-a-half day course will be technique and function requirements for pressing lithium disilicate for subsequent bonding to a prefabricated titanium base. Bonding procedures for the various components will also be discussed. The hands-on component of the course will include fabrication of an anterior implant abutment and a posterior hybrid abutment/crown. The final glazing and characterization of the hybrid abutment/crown will be performed using a variety of IPS e.max Ceram materials.
