About This Course
The Fundamentals of Press Technology Course covers the fundamentals of the IPS e.max technique including IPS e.max components for pressing (IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max ZirPress) and IPS e.max Ceram for the layering fabrication technique. Additional...See more topics covered are: patient-dentist-laboratory communication and clinical protocols including indications, contraindications, preparation requirements, cementation and bonding requirements. During the hands-on portion of this 2-day course students fabricate a variety of ceramic restorations, including an anterior IPS e.max Press LT crown using the Cutback Technique, IPS e.max Press posterior crown using the Staining Technique and an IPS e.max ZirPress Crown using the Staining Technique. Topics covered will include: - Wax up techniques for all-ceramic restorations - Proper sprueing, investing and burnout techniques - Pressing all-ceramic restorations using the EP5000 and EP3000 press furnaces - Preparing pressed materials for layering ceramics - Utilizing the e.max ceramic materials to build pressed substructures to full contour - Proper shading and glazing techniques
