Learn how to Design Restorations like a Pro!

In this course we break down the key considerations when treatment planning for a bridge, tooth preparation, suitable materials, with a special focus is on the bridge design itself. We will discuss each bridge component, namely connectors and pontics, but also occlusion. You will also learn how to trouble-shoot daily obstacles. Our goal is to ensure that your bridge will not only look aesthetic, but also bear a long-lasting, functional result. Everything you learn in this course is applicable to any monolithic ceramic bridge, implant bridges included. We also explain what to expect from various CAD programs, with a show-and-tell approach using real, and often less than ideal cases.
