The Northeastern Gnathological Society held its annual Spring Scientific Seminar on Friday, May 13, 2016 at Chelsea Piers in New York City. The seminar had invited a number of key speakers from various sectors of the dental profession to present recent advances in esthetic dentistry, dental implants, restorative dentistry and more.
The founder of our dental lab, Mr. Haim Keren, was one of the key speakers at the scientific seminar. His presentation titled “Digital Workflow – From Virtual to Reality”, focused on the 9-year experience of creating monolithic or minimally veneered zirconia restorations.
Laboratory protocols for zirconia restorations of different complexities were also shown and discussed. Digital processes and their advantages in the production of zirconia restorations were presented. Special emphasis was placed on most common misconceptions and pitfalls in the creation of zirconia restorations and how to avoid them.
The objective of Mr. Haim’s presentation was for the participants to
• Gain insight into the newest digital protocols for creation of zirconia restorations.
• Gain a better understanding of different approaches to creation of zirconia restorations.
• Gain tools to make a scientifically based decision in regard to zirconia restorations and their type.
