In his lecture titled “How to control the surface treatment of multi-layer zirconia to make aesthetic restora- tions,” he will talk about zirconia and will answer questions such as: How to control the zirconia material prop- erty? What information do we need to know about ceramic paste stain before using it? Jürgen Seger, CDT from Switzerland, KOL of Ivoclar Vivadent will speak about pressed glass-ceramic restora- tions. Thanks to the extensive expe- rience available today with pressed ceramics, he will discuss in detail important selection criteria that will help technicians choose the right material translucency and the right type of restoration related to the clinical situation.

Using intraoral scanners and equipment to scan, outsource or produce locally, digitally designed restorations are done predictably and efﬁ ciently. Dental technicians will have the chance to learn how to utilize the maximum of the digital impressions and CAD/CAM equip- ment to create restorations like prepped or non-prep veneers or sim- plifying complex implant surgery and interdisciplinary cases using chairside or lab equipment.
