This two day e.max Workshop is designed to provide advanced layering concepts for individuals who are working with lithium disilicate restorations. This course, which features IPS e.max Press or CAD substructures, has been developed for ceramists that are experienced in the fabrication of All-Ceramic restorations and ready to take their build-ups to the next level of esthetics. Attendees will fabricate an 8-unit smile design case restoring a combination of crowns and veneers. Esthetic layering techniques will be accomplished by using a variety of IPS e.max Ceram materials. Topics covered will include:

  • Lithium disilicate material science
  • Smile design principles
  • Ingot or block selection criteria
  • Processing techniques for all-ceramic restorations

  • Preparing lithium disilicate frameworks for layering ceramics

  • Esthetic layering with e.max ceramic materials
