In modern society, aesthetics are a factor that increasingly dominates our way of being in everyday life, and an intact smile suggests positivity and dynamism to the interlocutor. It goes without saying that the demand in this sector is continuously growing, also favoring the search for new technological solutions and the production of new materials with optical qualities that are close to natural teeth. Among these materials we must mention Celtra, a lithium silicate reinforced with 10% zirconium, a material that, due to its characteristics, is suitable for everyday use to restore an aesthetic smile to be used in our daily work process.
The purpose of this course is to make the best use of this material by exploiting its dynamism in the diffusion of light. We will learn how to choose the best pellets and ceramic masses and reproduce teeth that result in the shape, light and surface a perfect substitute for permanent dentition. We will learn to copy the shapes of the teeth and to give a natural shine suitable for the wear of the enamel.
What we will do:
Two 11-21 crowns one on a Zirconium cap and one on Celtrapress cap!
How to choose the color in a standardized way by establishing the chroma and its intensity and the value !
We will layering mainly using the opalescent materials
The first day:
Theory: Opalescence, chroma, value, translucency, transparency, characteristics of the material we will use Small visual display of cases solved with the technique we are going to use Individualization of the copings and first layering firing of the teeth 11-21
Correction firing (shape)
Final discussion, evaluation of the works
