Aims & Outcomes of the Course
Many times when we face an implant-supported rehabilitation, we are challenged to restore the gingival zone. Due to our poor habits, our poor habit, reproducing the colors and shades of the natural gum is to us one of the hardest jobs for lab technician. In this course we will solve these types of gingival restorations and for that we will perform an anterior group implant-supported on a metal frame. In parallel, we will provide a solution to the modern day problem due to the aesthetic demands of our patients: how to achieve white colors more than A1 with a natural look.
Fundamental aesthetic concepts. Discuss and clarify concepts about possible restorative materials for this type of prosthesis:
– Metal versus zirconium
– Ceramic versus composite Design of the internal structure Color-layering “Bleach” Layering for gingival aesthetics Mechanical gloss and polishing without external stains
In 1985, August Bruguera finished his studies as Dental Technician in the well known Dental School Ramon y Cajal. By then, his speciality started becoming more important in the Dentistry field.
