How do you pick the material for your restorations? New materials continue to flood the market in the chairside CAD/CAM world as well as the lab world. Are materials all the same? Is there one material that can do it all? Can we use these new materials to approach our day-to-day dentistry differently? Let’s explore the options that are available and the unique properties that materials present. We will focus specifically on the differences between zirconia, lithium disilicate, resin/ceramic hybrids and feldspathic porcelains.

Learning outcomes

Objectives: Understand the differences between the types of materials available today. Discuss strategies of what material to use when and where. Discuss optimal lab communication to create a natural looking restoration.

Speaker

Dr Kristine Aadland

Dr Kristine opened her first practice during the longest economic downturn since World War II. Was there magic in her approach? Not at all. She is a technology geek who is dental phobic, so she combined the best technology available with a patient-first approach and grew her practice into what it is today. Kris’s practice has a digital technology flow that honors patient’s busy schedules and has brought exponential growth to her business. She began to lecture when she discovered that very few women stood behind the podium. 'Become the change you want to see' has become a personal mantra for her as she encourages other women to engage in the educational side of dentistry. Kris most often lectures on digital technology, but one of her favorite educational courses is live patient training. This training combines high technology workflows with doctors creating same day smiles for those in need. Never a dry eye at the end of the day, she found a way to combine her love of this industry into an educational format that empowers doctors and changes the lives of those we serve. Although most days you can find her either in her practice or on a stage, you can also find her at Titanium Winery in the Napa Valley. Co-owned with her fiancé, Dr Justin Moody, their first vintage will hit the market in 2025. Their hope is that you will enjoy it with loved ones and create lifetime memories.
