The course outline:
The course is designed to update clinicians on the current evidence of effectively bonding resin composites and resin cements to enamel, dentin and ceramics. We will discuss advantages and limitations of current adhesives, how to avoid incompatibility issues with resin cement, how to properly prepare ceramic surfaces for bonding to resin cements, how to cement fiber posts, among several other clinical procedures. The scientific evidence will be introduced along with clinical cases to illustrate and support the rationale for the best clinical practice.
