Anterior Indirect Aesthetics

This lecture aims to show the techniques required to deliver predictable, indirect anterior restorations. Planning, preparation and cementation will be covered along with options to make procedures less invasive, have better function and improved aesthetics. Digital workflows will be discussed combining intra-oral scanning and 3D design of the final ceramic restorations.

Complete Reconstruction – Step by Step

There is nothing more important than a happy patient with aesthetic and functional reconstruction, and nowadays our patients expect the best possible final result. Digital Smile Design allows us to simulate the final product in the mouth with mock up and this gives us a greater understanding of our patient’s wants and needs before we’ve even begun.

Using the latest technology like Zirconia, IPS e.max Press Multi or IPS e.max Power Ceram, we can achieve harmony and lifelike aesthetic.

This lecture explores the complete step-by-step process, from dental photography protocol to clinical and laboratory processes, including Digital Smile Design platform, to the final fitting of the ceramic restoration.

Titanium and Ceramic – How to achieve harmony

This lecture will be discussing the newest developments in implant reconstructions and demonstrating the different options available when it comes to repairing single unit restorations. It will also go through the advantages and disadvantages of various restoration modalities and what effect implant planning and positioning has on the final outcome.

Predictability and Precision in Aesthetic Dentistry

Dentistry is moving into the digital age and technology is advancing at an ever-increasing pace. Preparations can be digitally scanned and emailed to the
laboratory, restorations designed and milled, finished and fitted, all without any physical impressions or models.

Seasoned practitioners skilled in analogue techniques may sometimes view such technology with skepticism, preferring the “certainty” of models and a technician’s hands.

We ask, just how accurate is digital technology, can it claim to rival or supersede tried and tested analogue techniques?

This lecture highlights and compares the accuracy of fit for indirect restorations, providing details that will enable Dental Practitioners to confidently make choices with new technology.

Digital Dentistry – Endless Possibilities

Throughout the years, restorative trends and techniques have come and gone. Some material developments have transformed the face of aesthetic dentist
try, while other initial concepts have phased out and died. Yet the concept of digital dentistry is one that started out small, and has progressively increased in momentum until its boundaries appear to have become endless.

As dentistry evolves into the digital world, the successful incorporation of computerization and new technology will continue to provide more efficient methods of communication and fabrication while at the same time retaining the individual creativity and artistry of the skilled dental technician, and the utilization of new technology will enhanced the close cooperation and working relationship of the dentist/technician team.  The evolution from hand waxing to digital design, using the diagnostic wax-up and provisional restorations, and their digital replicas to guide us in the creation of cad-cam restorations will be presented.

The most exciting factor surrounding these technologies is not, however, only in the potential applications of these technologies that are being hypothesized by dental professionals. The excitement truly lies in the fact that these “hypothetical” applications are currently being developed today, and some are even in the final stages of development. These advancements are not, therefore, something that will “eventually” emerge in the market, they are realities that are currently being released to further revolutionize the quality of dental care that is being delivered in modern restorative dentistry.

This exciting presentation will offer participants a unique insight into the replication of natural esthetics while focusing on proper function and occlusal harmony using CAD-CAM technology.  Participants will learn a format for achieving that often-elusive goal of pleasing the patient, dentist, and ceramist with creative ceramic artistry and predictable restorative dentistry.

The Digital Landscape and it’s Applications

Presenting Digital dentistry. Arguably the biggest advancement for dental laboratories over the past decade, and an exciting time to be part of a “maturing” digital landscape. Technology is moving on rapidly, making it hard sometimes somewhat difficult to keep up with all the new developments, but consumer knowledge is also greatly improving and manufacturers are learning to adapt to the changing requirements of the digital market.

Independent Practice Marketing in the Digital Age

In this presentation, we will look at the current landscape for digital marketing in dentistry and he intends to bust some of the common mythology about what does and doesn’t work, sharing real examples from his existing clients.

Prepare to have your beliefs challenged and your potential expanded.

Aims and Objectives

  • To review the current landscape for digital marketing in independent dentistry
  • To show what works and, more importantly, what doesn’t
  • To identify trends in digital marketing that you will have to embrace
  • To suggest the framework of a 12-month digital marketing plan for your practice

On Saturday we are giving the first 30 delegates the chance to take part in a series of presentations about our new Digital Portfolio.

To close ICDE2017 it is our pleasure to offer our guests the opportunity to join our digital experts for a private demonstration on the topics covered during the ICDE event. Based on the Ivoclar Digital 1, 2, 3 concept, three groups will have the opportunity to discuss in detail; 1- Design; Scanning and Design software. 2- Decide; materials from the co-ordinated Ivoclar Digital portfolio and finally
3- Produce; CAM manufacturing and equipment options. All of these private groups will finish with a Q&A session.

To book onto this, please visit the information desk. This opportunity is only available to 30 delegates and on a first come first served basis.


Evening Entertainment

On Friday night at 7pm, the Keith Weller Suite at King Power Stadium will be transformed into a Hollywood-glamour themed evening.

The dress code is smart and you will need to practise your best Hollywood smile for our red-carpet entrance, complete with a photographer to capture your arrival. The scene will be set with the infamous Hollywood backdrop and iconic movie décor to ensure many photo opportunities at our pre-dinner drinks reception.

Once you have enjoyed the three-course gala dinner amongst the glitz and glamour, we have also arranged for after-dinner entertainment with a mini-casino providing Roulette and Black Jack tables, as well as a selfie mirror and dance floor with a lively DJ set to keep us on our feet until the evening draws to a close.
